As we are growing and expanding it was determined that we needed a new name to better convey to prospective members and the community what we do and what we are about. Likewise there have been plans for a new insignia for a couple of years, and so what better time to put it into action than now? We kept the original shield art from our very first official day years ago, and added it to the breast of a Medieval Prussian Eagle. The black and white colors of the shield along with its red Christian Cross allude to our Christian beliefs. The insignia has elements artistically of the Flags of Ulster, Northern Ireland and of course Medieval Germanic influences. This is to bring a little bit broader recognition of the many contributions to our arts from across Europe. Naturally it would be impossible to incorporate elements from all of the nations of Europe that have contributed sources and weapons to Historical European Martial Arts today. This was found to be a sharp looking insignia that is fitting for our school.
We will also be introducing more fun and exciting weapons and skill-sets into our curriculum that are in keeping with our war-fighting martial focus rather than dueling, though make no mistake we will also continue to look at those weapons and skills used in dueling too. We have simply always been much more focuses on the Historical European Martial Arts skills employed in war-fighting.
We are looking forward to an exciting new adventure as we move forward and grow.
