Over the weekend, we received a very interesting email from a gentleman who is an avid HEMA (historical European martial arts) enthusiast. HEMA is the preservation of historical European armed and unarmed combat methods which people practice with a variety of weapons, such as the iconic longsword used in shows and movies like Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings. Because many spar with blunted steel weapons, people will inevitably get hurt even with the best protection. This is where one fan of HEMA got the idea to create additional protection for his gauntlets.
David created a video that details both his plan and process for thumb protectors that go under the gloves using Versimold.
Check out David's video below to see his clever use of Versimold for his HEMA gloves:
