The association has weekly training sessions in Utrecht (NL). Also, every first Sunday of the month there is a training session at the Muiderslot Castle in Muiden (NL). These training sessions, which visitors are welcome to watch, feature historic costumes and gear.|
Objectives of training sessions:
- improving physical strength and general fitness
- practising fighting techniques and principles
- designing and developing fight choreographies
For those who want to become active in medieval martial arts themselves, the association can provide instructors. De Orde der Noorderwind can arrange workshops for private and public occasions, including those for companies, Primary and Secondary schools.
The group also participates in a number of international events dedicated to medieval martial arts. These events provide a foundation where knowledge can be shared and expertise and experience can be gained.
Furthermore, the association organises an annual Summer Course in Medieval Martial Arts. During this week-long course the focus is on a wide variety of medieval martial art techniques. The course is led by the French weapons master and (show) fight choreographer Laurent Bernard, to whom De Orde der Noorderwind owes its foundation.
