Hi All, The HMB-GB committee and Trustees have approved a name change for the charity and sports body to Medieval Combat Sports Association Great Britain. There were a number of reasons for the change, one related to the effects on the sport of the conflict in Ukraine, plus clubs not only take part in the old HMB rules, but also IMCF and members participate in duals. The new charity and association name reflects the different disciplines that members compete within, and will give us a clearer position of what we are within the sports field within the UK.

The UK have newly accredited marshals! On the 25th of May, UK Head Marshall Andrew Mowgli announced that David Brown and Daniel George of The Northern Wolves have successfully gained their National Marshal accreditation under the recently announced Buhurt League marshaling certification scheme. The newly created Buhurt League scheme sets out a clearly defined path for marshaling certification. Both David and Daniel had satisfied the required number of events and criteria to look for certification, and further attended the 7th May National Training where Andrew assessed them further. This now means the UK have 3 certified marshals with many more looking to gain their accreditation in the future. If you are interested in marshaling please get in touch for further information.

Important announcement! We are happy to announce that our NEW Women's Representative is Sofie Maceanruig! The Women's Representative has been a permanent fixture in HMB GB for years and plays an important role in helping us drive the women's side of the sport forward. We are sure you are as excited as we are to get to know Sofie and her aspirations for the role a bit more in the coming weeks so we will leave you with a sneak peak of what is to come: "I’ve been involved in the sport in one way or another for the last 6-7 years. I came in as a fighter when I was 19, however reoccurring injuries made me take a major step back from fighting in 2019 just before covid struck. Still on the road to recovery but I now feel ready to commit to the sport again. I’d like to do that by continuing to grow and nurture the idea of bringing the female fighting community together as one." Keep an eye out for our interview with Sofie coming soon!

A follow on from this weekends National Training. A little Q&A with our very own head marshal Andrew Mowgli. Q: Do you think all fighters should know the rules? A: Of course, it's important fighters read and understand the rules, it stops pointless arguments. It would be a nightmare if fighters didn't understand them. Q: What do you think puts people off becoming a marshal? A: They can be long days on your feet that get tiring. You can't just go socialise with friends at events as you please and there's the occasional times with having to deal with fighters who aren't happy with outcomes of fights, or some people I guess just find it boring to do. Q: What’s are your thoughts on the new regulations? A: Personally I'm a fan of the new rules it's made things clearer with less grey areas. The rule about being allowed to touch the floor with a hand after a throw is something I wish was in place when I was fighting. Q: What are your plans for the UK marshals? A: There's a couple of guys who I'm waiting on BL questionnaire before making them officially national Marshalls, one person in particular I'm really happy with is David. He helped me last year at Tournament of Deeds and I think since he's Marshalled almost every UK tournament, not being a fighter also helps massively as I know I don't need to worry about him disappearing to fight. I held the first Marshall training at a national training this past weekend that went well, doing it there means I could also have the guys Marshalling a fight in a setting where the outcome doesn't matter. Q: What made you decided to be a marshal? A: I stopped fighting but still wanted to be involved and help White Company out so they could hold tournaments etc. There was a Marshall seminar in the UK organised by Antony that I went to and passed the theory side, then onto dynamo in Moscow for my practical, and now I'm the head UK Marshall and responsible for it all. Q: How many marshals do you think we need in the UK? A: I don't think there's really a limit. It would be great to have as many as possible and that way people didn't have to Marshall every round of every fight, but it's difficult to find people who just want to Marshall. It is a very long day at a tournament where you're doing everything. Q: What makes a good marshal in your opinion? A: In my opinion I think the best Marshalls are made by ex fighters who were involved with the sport for a while. On top of that coming to any trainings if there are any, whether that's a Marshall training or just a normal national training to practise, reading the rules making sure you understand and not being afraid to ask questions about what you aren't sure on. I still ask questions to the Marshalls above me. Q: How do you become a marshal? A: First step is reading rules, then volunteering to come help at a 3 tournaments or 2 and a Marshall training, working alongside an accredited Marshall. Once this is done and they believe you are ready you take a national certification exam to become a National Marshall, the next step is regional Marshall. For this you need to work a tournament alongside the regional head Marshall who will assess how you're doing tell you if you need to work on things still or are ready for the regional test which is more in depth. There is then an interview with them and once the interview is passed you become a regional marshall. After this becoming buhurt league certified is done by talking to your regional head about gaining this next level, for more in depth explanation its best to read the post on the buhurt league Facebook page. A massive thank you to Andrew Mowgli for allowing me to ask these questions and for answering them honestly. We are always in need of more marshals in the UK, even more so with there being more tournaments being held in the UK. If this is something you are looking to do and want to become a marshal please do not hesitate to get in touch for more information.

The latest UK National training was headed up by National Captain Daniel Winter over the weekend at the ISCA training grounds in Ledbury. The National training allows our highly experienced veteran fighters to share their knowledge with new and seasoned fighters alike. This session started with some fitness and calisthenics and quickly moved on to soft kit training and technique, before finally putting the day's lessons into practice with some armoured wrestling and buhurt which was joined by the UK Head Marshal and the trainee marshals. More on this soon! Is this something you need in your life? Get in touch and we will point you in the direction of your nearest club! 📷 Lisa Michelle Robertson
