New Zealand HEMA? (visiting in April)

Anyone on here know much about clubs in New Zealand/is from New Zealand themselves?

I'm visiting in April and would be great to meet up with some HEMA folks down there...

One of our guys moved back to New Zealand a while ago, and I know he's always on the lookout for people with whom to practise!

Check out Colin McKinstry, Callum Forbes in Wellington operating as

also Auckland Sword and Shield
Both have Facebook pages etc. There are a few other HEMA groups but can be a bit tricky to find from outside NZ.

DDS has former members in Hamilton, Auckland and Wellington, at least one is still teaching fencing.
