What is the goal here?

HEMA is getting bigger. Which is awesome.

But size means more information, and more information soon becomes a torrent of news about our favourite hobby, sport, martial art.

Every week we will sift through this for you and bring you what I consider the most interesting videos, events, stories from the HEMAsphere.

Our team will make that choice by applying over a decade of combined HEMA experience and more than that as a professional journalists.


My name is Borislav Krustev and I am the main editor of HEMA Digest.

I am an assistant-instructor at School of Historical Swordsmanship “Motus” in Sofia, Bulgaria. Everything I know of swordsmanship and most I know about being a good human being I learned from my instructor – Miroslav Lesichkov.

What pays for my swords is my job as a political reporter in the Bulgarian news site and magazine ClubZ.bg.


I am Jakub Prokop. I’m a member of HEMA club “Vectir”, located in Silesia, Poland – organizer of The Silesian Confrontations of Lost Fencing Arts (Śląskie Konfrontacje Utraconych Nauk Kunsztu Szermierczego — ŚKUNKS). Recently, I have started teaching Meyer’s dussack in my own section.

On daily basis, I work in marketing. I love my wife and my Guinea pigs, and I believe HEMAists deserve a to receive all the meaningful information they need.
