VII th POLAND’S GO-NOW WEAPON HISTORICAL FENCING CHAMPIONSHIPS

 

VIIth Poland’s Go-Now Weapon Historical Fencing Championships brought us many unforgetable sensations. We has wonderful guests, like Zbigniew Skrudlik, a former Olimpian and Marcin Żmudzki founder of Akademia Broni F3. The prizes presented by SPES, Leon Paul oraz Nicol Sport were impressing.

On Saturday, on 17th of January started the elimination phase. About 100 contestants took part in sabre and about 80 in longsword, they all represented 20 different fencing clubs. The youngest competitor was 5,5 years old and the oldest over 70. This time the fencers were divided into 5 age categories, not 4 like before.

On Sunday, on 18 th of January during finals for the first time we presented champioships to a wider range of audience in a shopping passage in Manufaktura Łódź. Finalists’s duels were highly emotional and gathered a crowd of public.

The finals were enriched by stage shows: rehabilitative fencing by Dariusz Wadowski and Stowarzyszenie Rodziców i Opiekunów Osób z Zespołem Downa, sabre demonstrated by PGF Salut, longsword displayed by Akademia Broni i Akademia Szermierzy and stage fencing by Wszechnica Szermiercza.

Carrying out the championships was possible thanks to hard work of many volonteers – wonderful people among the judges, scouts and competitors. Once again thank you!

Vth POLAND’S CHAMPIONSHIPS IN GO-NOW 

SABER CUP OF THE DEFENDERS OF THE FORTRESS MODLIN 2012

We’ve met in Fortress Modlin on 10-11th of November 2012 to spend some terrific time together. Championships were hosted by Piotr Pawłowski – Jerzy Pawłowski’s ( saber fencer of whole times) son, Ryszard Rogowski – both representatives of Sport Club Fenix and Dariusz Wadowski (creator of the idea and Go-Now fencing system). The whole competition evolved into a very big event patronaged by Polish Fencing Associetion. The guest of honour was Jan Pośnik – advisor of the Minister of Sport in the Departament of Professional Sports. We were honoured with the presence of well-known professor Czajkowski – the authority of fencing theory and its teaching. As usual our metors were present: Zbigniew Skrudlik (the Olympic and World Championships medalist and a coach of the team gold medalists) and Wojciech Zabłocki (the Olympic and World Championships medalist). Among the great names of fencing society we were also showed up Marek Poznański (the famous Polish team coach), Ryszard Czaja (current coach of Polish saber fencers) and Adam Skrodzki (our former saber fencing Olympian). We were also joined by other fencers.
The guests and what’s even more important, also contestants, congratulated us on the event and the participants said they can’t wait till the next year’s meeting.
Plenty of bouts, judged by professional sport fencing referees, successfully ended for:
– adults – I st place Konrad Kramarz (Go-Now Łódź team), II nd place – Aleksander Frydrych (Salut), III rd place Rafał Kalus (Akademia Szermierzy), IV th place Szczepan Łakomy (PGE Salut)
– age category 14 – 18 years old – Michał Różycki, Aleksander Kamiński, Bartłomiej Maliszewski, Jakub Maliszewski
– age category 10 -14 years old – Emanuela Kołodziej, Nadia Kłos, Jan Ogiński, Hubert Stochowski
– age category up to 10 years old- Filip Majewski, Antoni Rudowski, Jan Gessel, Alicja Godlewska
During the games we relieved the tension through team contests.
Not only have we dueled from morning till evening, we also had some time for uniting the crews of different fencing groups 🙂
Thanks to 13th Regiment of Vilinius Ulans we could witness some fantastic horse and man skills show. But the most amazing was the show conducted by Dariusz Wadowski with his students with disfunctions. It drew full attention of the audience, surprised how joyful and full of therapeutic effects can be fencing for such people. Best competitors in Go-Now saber and in classic sport saber agreed to bout with our students with Down syndrome. It was very important event in lives of the last ones, as after all, they fought with masters among whom there was also a present Olympian! And for the contestants it was an enormous experience bordering with a shock.
We think these championships were a threshold moment and we want to invite everyone who’s keen on fencing to the next ones, which are going to be international.
Here are some moments caught in a brief coverage:
