Zwaard en Steen

Since 2003 Zwaard & Steen practices Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) focused on the European longsword. Since then Zwaard & Steen has grown into a school that teaches over 120 students in both Rotterdam and Nieuwegein. The basis for our lessons are manuscripts from the 14th and 15th century, belonging to the German tradition of Johannes Lichternauer and his students. Practicing Historical European Martial Arts is a combination of sport, exercise and delving into the ancient fighting styles. It is a unique experience which combines the gathering knowledge with creating a good condition and building confidence.

The sport keeps growing not just in the Netherlands but in other countries as well. This year, 2019, is the first edition of the NHK (Nederlands HEMA kampioenschap), our first national championship. This is a gathering of swordfighters form all over the country to clash their swords and find out who is the best.

The Predators

Once upon a time, we were a group of friends crazy about predators. What began as a fun hobby evolved into something significant: a fantastic blend of cosplay and high-level performance.

In our crew, we have three ‘predators’ adorned in magnificent costumes. When we hit an event, we bring a striking booth to life. We’ve got awesome lighting, music, and even a photo wall where visitors can capture memories.

Every time we’re out, we set up tables showcasing all sorts of predator paraphernalia, from prop weapons to skulls. We’ve been to numerous events and cons, not only in the Netherlands but also in Germany, Belgium, and France. People love seeing us.

Over 5 years, we’ve built a solid reputation. It’s not just a name; it’s a way of life for us. We craft everything ourselves: costumes, weapons, and much more. Come check us out, take photos, and immerse yourself in the world of predators!
