Diana Matthess

 

Diana started practicing with the Longsword in Fall 2013 and her first school was Krîfon in Mannheim, Germany. Very quickly she started to visit other schools, groups and attend various events. Her first tournament was in April 2014, which was an open steel tournament, in which she achieved 3rd place. Diana was also part of the German/Austrian Delegation for the European Games in Minsk.

She attended a 4 week fencing trip in fall 2017 where she visited and fenced at several schools in Europe and Diana is currently living in Cologne where there is no Longsword school, so she has to travel around whenever she can to go fencing, which earned her the nickname of “the Mercenary”. Diana began to give workshops about German Longsword and Stage Fighting in 2018
