We are proud and happy to announce, that Joshua Campbell fullfilled the requirements for reaching Level 3: Broadsword & Targe within our program.
Joshua frequently trained and bouted with Sword and Targe and also other offhand weapons like the Buckler. He also participated in the TV show “Forged in Fire – Knife or Death”, a sword cutting test show. His episode is yet to be aired and hopefully soon.
He also fought multiple SCA tournaments from melee to testing the skill of the combatants fighting to become the hosting Shire’s champion to an Ironman longsword challenge, king of the hill and more. He joined the tournament with Broadsword and his beloved Twohander commonly known as a Claymore. For the championship tournament he had the second highest number of wins over all, and in the longsword challenge he had 105 victories, the second highest was 65. Joshua also won 2nd place in the Sword Masters tournament. The tournament format was three separate tournaments with Single sword, Sword and Defensive tool and Twohanded sword.
He constantly improves his skills and bouts a lot versus other styles and weapons. He not only works with Broadsword, Targe and Twohander, but also with scottish onehanded medieval or halflang swords. He will now moving forward to study Level VI of the program.
