Workshop Spotlight



Joe Zagroba Joe Zagroba has always loved martial arts, and eventually that led him to Ars Gladii in Detroit where he learned in-depth about Historical European Martial Arts with a focus on German Longsword. Over the last year he has traveled across the country to many HEMA events in order to meet other practitioners such as Sean Franklin and Karl Bolle, and learn more about various weapons and interpretations. He is currently delving deeper into cutting mechanics taking classes for top level competitors and getting guidance from those he meet on his travels.
