HEMA Reviews

I have been using different HEMA gear for several years now, and would like to share my experiences to help people who are looking for HEMA reviews of different pieces of equipment. Most of these items I have bought for myself, to use in my own training, although a few items have been sent to me specifically for review. Needless to say, if you would like to send me something for review, I’m more than happy to help – just get in touch with me and we can have a chat!
