Andrew Maxwell (Contact him by PM via http://hemaalliance.com/discussion/index.php )- Ordo Cygni (Order of the Swan) is a reinactment and European martial arts group based out of the University of Canterbury in NZ. Their earnest and dedicated approach to Kunst des fechten ("arts of fighting") brings new meaning to the phrase "Head Hunting". They are a valuable addition to the HEMA Alliance and we look forward to their future contributions to the overall HEMA effort.

Focuses on the unarmoured fighting arts of the medieval knights. Dead for centuries, medieval German fencing has only recently been resurrected from historical texts by a handful of practioners around the world. Although there a many schools and clubs that study German Fencng in North America and Europe, Castle Tintagel is the first to offer these rare skill to Japan.
Currently students can study German two-handed sword and sword and buckler in the 15th century Lichtenauer style. Each class will introduce them to aggressive styles of swordplay that are utterly distinct from those of Japan and China.
