Martina Ochoa: “We are a group of women-fighters who train together. The women in my club organize an annual training plan before the HMB World Championship “Battle of the Nations”- 2018. This time we trained full armour fights for women and we train like… all the weekends. Nowadays, we are being invited to all the female buhurt tournaments”.
They are working hard to improve their skills and to have the opportunity to participate in different tournaments.
Martina Ochoa: “Well, we train together 3 times a week, we help each other making the armor, we forge our armor by ourselves, and we try to raise funds at all the medieval fairs selling t-shirts, accepting donations, telling about the BotN and explaining our sport and our achievements. We have our own technical director Sergio Scabone, who has been a personal coach of the National team during the last two years. And we train and fight with men in our club, which helps us a lot”.
Argentinian female sportsmen know their opponents and know what they have to do to win – more trainings and more tournaments! This double “T” is an important part of the sport and Martina with her friends have the same dream – go to HMB World Championship “Battle of the Nations”-2018.
Martina Ochoa: “Now, we are being invited to all the tournaments, not only because of our final score, but because we didn’t lose in a single round. But we know the other nations has powerful women, I saw them at the BotN 2015, and in 2016, and I understood that if I wanted win and have good results, I have to help my team to travel there. So, my girls want to be ready for the “Battle of the Nations”-2018 and show the great results! You can bet on that”.
HMBIA and our editorial office cannot wait to see the “Valherjes” girls on the lists of the greatest HMB competition “Battle of the Nations” and wish them more strength and decent fights!
