The Association M.C.E. was established in 1988. The contents and programme of the Association are not only self-contained performances, exhibitions of fights with various arms, but also taking a part in other events concerning historical themes. These events are organized by town and cultural institutions both in our country and abroad. The Association has taken a part in shooting several films of Czech and foreign production. A valuable experience has been obtained by performances on the stage of the National Theatre in Brno.
The presentation of the Association is supported by cooperation with the experts in fields of stage motion, stunt actions, dance, history of clothing, militarized items and other necessary intentions. The members of the Fencing Association M.C.E. deepen their fighting skills under leadership of Mr. Petr Žákovský, the disciple of free fencing master Engr. Peter Koza. The purpose of M.C.E. is a study regarding history with an intention to the fencing conception as a fighting skill of our predecessors. We would also like to make general public familiar with this historical reality, including the top credibility of costumes, properties and arms used during our performances.
