Long version: The HEMA movement is a magnificent fusion of amateur fencing, sports, historical research, and weapon theory, including the practical application of using swords to fight opponents.

Despite being relatively unknown, numerous European countries developed sophisticated systems for weapons, fencing, and hand-to-hand combat in various scenarios, such as in armor and without, on foot and horseback, on the battlefield, in the streets, and even in court. As a result, many fencing schools emerged, competing with each other, some of which became widely recognized for their effectiveness. The HEMA movement now focuses on studying and preserving the techniques of these skilled masters.

Nowadays, thousands of enthusiasts worldwide study ancient manuscripts, fencing books, and scrolls to learn about the fighting techniques used with various weapons. These sources are translated into modern languages and carefully analyzed to obtain a theoretical understanding of the fencing concepts, which are then practiced through weapons exercises and tested in training, sparring, and tournaments.

Originating in archives and libraries as a theoretical discipline and the subject of study for historians, the HEMA movement has since grown into a global hobby for amateur fencing enthusiasts, attracting renowned scholars and participants from Europe, the USA, and Czechia. It has even become a national sport in some countries, with international federations and leagues uniting thousands of people.
