My name is Daniel Angel Estrada and I am the Captain of the “Slavyanskiye Voiny” (“Slavic Warriors”) HMB club in Mexico.
“Slavyanskiye Voiny” is a club formed by both young men and women who try to reenact the Slavic culture, from the XIIth to the XIVth century. We do this because we admire the Slavic culture, especially of the mentioned period.
We don't have a real place to train, so we mostly end up training in parks or hired premises, but that means that we can't get all the training equipment we need. Our next issue is getting equipment and armor. Blacksmiths are few here and their work is expensive; and as I’ve already said, most of our members are students and do not have means to buy their own equipment. We try to get what we can and try to make something with our own hands. The final problem is the distance from where we live to the tournaments in other countries, especially in Europe. Transportation is very expensive and we have no means to cover that costs, but with time we hope to be able to solve that problem.
Our dream, and the reason for this fund raising is, we want to be able to get proper armors and equipment for our fighters and to be able to represent our country in Battle Of the Nations 2015 in Prague. Please help this Slavic Warriors from Mexico fulfill their dream and proudly represent their country overseas.
