Fechtkunst, the HEMA Video Wiki, is Looking for Supporters

Fechtkunst, the HEMA Video Wiki, was created to make it easier for you to find technique videos on Figueyredo, Mair, Meyer, Fabris, Marozzo, Manciolino, and others. The goal was to comb through YouTube, Vimeo, and other video sharing sites so that someone looking for how to do Meyer’s Example Device or dall’Agocchie’s Stepping in the Guards can not only find an example, but compare interpretations across multiple clubs.

But we need your help.

First and foremost, we need people to adopt a master and start cataloging the videos pertaining to his manual. We’re especially looking for experts on Liechtenauer and Fiore to sift through the various naming/numbering conventions and make sure each video is put on the correct page.

And of course everyone in HEMA needs more videos. Other than Diogo Gomes de Figueyredo and maybe Fiore, I don’t think any manual has a full set of videos for all of the plays. So if you or your if really focused on one master, my challenge to you is to start looking for plays that have never been recorded and put them on video.
