My name is Andrzej Zmuda Trzebiatowski. Welcome to my blog.
Since 1999 I’m involved in the reenactment movement and a range of activities connected with swordsmanship (HMB, IMCF, ACL, HEMA). For years I have been actively participating in developing the communities focused on history, caring for the goods of material culture, and foregone fencing traditions.
These interests resulted in taking the best places in numerous prestigious HMB and HEMA tournaments.
Most of all, I am committed to manufacturing the most secure equipment dedicated to HEMA and HMB. As a Clothing Historian and an expert in terms of protective garments, I also had a chance to support TV shows and museums as a consultant.
The founder and CEO of SPES Historical Fencing Gear. The co-founder and instructor in Toruń Fencing School (Toruńska Szkoła Fechtunku). The former vice president of Polish Association of Knight Fighting (Polskie Stowarzyszenie Walk Rycerskich). One of the benefactors of “Dybów Castle and Nieszawa Burgh” Foundation (Fundacja “Zamek Dybów i Gród Nieszawa”).
