Practical Sword's "Fight like a Viking" program has developing a grading system for its fighters to guide their training and development.
The below info graphic summaries the advancement system for our Dark Ages HEMA system.
At gradings students can earn coloured shirts and tokens for each level past.
The below t-shirts correspond to each of the six levels of major achievement.
The final level is Boar an honary level for members who are still training and whose hair has turned grey.
As we put this system into practice this system will evolve and develop.
