HEMA

Huntsville is known as the Rocket City and home of the space program. However, there is a group in town that spends its time looking to the past. Spacesuits aren’t the big fashion statement here, but, rather a different type of suit and the shields and swords that go with it.

It looks like medieval times in this corner of Huntsville. People dressed in masks and armor try to wallop each other with weapons that look like they belong more on an ancient battlefield than the home of the space industry. It’s called HEMA.
