Swordfish is the first annual event in Sweden for Historical European Martial Arts. Swordfish is unique in many ways. It has become known as a tough event, with intense training and a lot of different classes to attend. And although that is true for many events, Swordfish hosts instructors and classes that you will not find anywhere else as well as some more well-known faces. It is a great opportunity to come together, meet friends and train hard.
