Samantha Swords interview

This is Australian-New Zealand sword-fighter Samantha Swords (at first I thought it was her real name - but it is of course just a nom de plume!).

She who won the longsword competition last year at the Harcourt Park World Invitational Jousting Tournament.

Here is a fascinating interview with Samantha.  She discusses her training in Historic European Martial Arts which includes an array of traditional weapons (the longsword is only one) as well as unarmed fighting.

It's inspiring and well worth watching - especially for any of my young female readers out there.

You can learn more about Samantha on her website.
