Volunteers Centre Skopje is looking for participants (18-30 years old) from Macedonia who want to participate in the youth exchange “HMB Soft and HEMA as a tool for battling youth inactivity” in Macedonia.
Place: Ljubojno, Macedonia
Date: 26.07 – 3.08.2023
About the project:
The project allows young people to develop new skills and learn about their own heritage through HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) and HMB Soft (Historical Medieval Battle). HMB Soft is a martial art for young athletes who use safe (soft) equipment: a sword, a shield and, of course, armor. Youth can be engaged in fencing with a shield and a sword according to the developed methods from young age. The youth exchange will provide the opportunity to the participants to enhance and develop competencies and skills such as strategizing, teamwork, problem solving skills and creative way of thinking. Because of the special location of the project, in rural area with a neighboring Prespa lake, the participants will have the opportunity to harmonize with the nature, through many physical and outdoor activities.
