24/6/2020 Heavy Fighting Continues

Since restrictions concerning Corona (Covid-19) are laid back, it is possible to start with regular heavy fighters practise again, like the official Austrian Sports fencing association recently announced. Tackling, Wrestling and other close-combat techniques are forbidden bei our rulebook, so it shoul be possible to keep a minimum distance with temporary exceptions. Hygiene measures are still mandatory (washing Hands, avoid kissing&hugging etc).

We are glad that we can move again. So see you all at HTC site this Wednesday!

SCA Heavy Fighter Practise 3/6/2020

This Wednesday it is time to say goodbye to a very fine installation at HTC site. Our armoury had to be removed. Temporarily it is now to be found downstairs next to the stairs. We are looking for a new space for our bulk heavy fighting equipment.

Sports Monkeys decide to move some more lockers into that place. We dedicate this moment to the memory of Mischa Bürkner, who installed curtain and cardboard for us. May it serve it´s new owners well.

Heavy fighting will continue with tactical lessons and gymnastics als well as pell work. Still no close combat.

Arts and Science: Reenacting Dutch Masters

During the boredom of corona lockdown we had plenty of time to study masterpieces of famous old Dutch painters from the 16th century as Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Breughel (the Elder). Their works inspired us to reeenact some Details taken out of their pictures. They were taken long before we learnt about similar actions like #gettymuseumchallange and others. By the way: some of those paintings are in Austrian museums… #scaartschallange. Since they were published on our social media channels we like to store them here to not be forgotten.

UPDATE: we are very proud, that the Austrian federal broadcasting company ORF awarded one of our pictures in their artschallange #dubistkunst.

We had plenty of time in the last weeks, to clean up the locker during lockdown. Authorities still forbid all close-combat activities, but we will start with some light Training this week. To be honest, it will be al lot of (physically distanced) socializing. The tavern at HTC site is already open, so let´s do some sight heavy stuff, pellwork and stretching. Hope to see you there, besause:
IT´S WEDNESDAY AGAIN!

Discipline and solidarity are our strongest weapons. Take care of yourself, help those who are in need.
