    This picture and video interview are currently going viral via Facebook and Tumblr. Sam's a very cool young lady and may be the ultimate "poster girl" for the new generation of HEMA fighters.



    The picture above was taken shortly after she won the open longsword competition at the Harcourt Park World Invitational Jousting Tournament near Wellington, New Zealand in February of this year.

    Cool. It's always good for a "normal" looking chick to be in a HEMA picture. Most of the chicks I know that hang around the HEMA people are either huge and don't really train, or kind of dude looking. Not that it makes them less of a fighter, but it does turn off some females that may be interested.

    I've always wanted to take up HEMA and with chicks like this I'm definitely up for it!

    Joking aside fair play to her!

    The upcoming generation (male and female) is a lot cooler than we fusty old fellows ever were.

    More evidence to that effect:

    Hmmm... the Battle of the Nations is starting a women's division next year. Has she talked with the team in her country?
