It's time for sleep away Sword Camp in Austin!
WEIRD Open has prided itself for seven years on being a fun, welcoming event for HEMA enthusiasts of all levels to come together to safely hit each other, enjoy the magic of a giant slumber party, and fly the WEIRD flag high enough for the other WEIRD-os to find you.
Event rules: HERE
January 26th - 28th
What's Happening This Year @ WEIRD?
Not only is it fun to see those at the top of their skills fight, but it offers a fantastic learning experience. We will be hosting a Tier A invitational with participants from all over the country. It's an opportunity to observe, cheer, and celebrate HEMA!
After the silly success of our inaugural HEMA-O-LYMPICS last year, we will be bringing it back with a whole new round of super serious challenges! You'll have all day to stop by and test your skills!
Fight for Fun! Fight with Friends! This year we are letting folks opt into a mystery dueling match-up! You will have a colored ribbon corresponding to a weapon system with your name tucked on the inside. Tie it around the tree and someone else can select your ribbon, track you down, and fight!
