In the 21st century Spain became an economic power house. Spainish Culture
began a massive resurgence. Spainsh pride was deeply injured that classical
Spanish fencing schools were obviated by Kendo and Kenjutsu, the Japanese
style of swordsmanship
An enterprising young Spaniard spent years becoming both a Classical Spanish
fencing master and then a Kenjutsu master. Then he fused the two styles
into a single martial art.
by 2041 this art, Espacombarte, flourished and was intensely popular in
Spain. The number of true practioners was never very large, but the numbers
of wannabe and dilletentes in it was large and made it popular.
By 2150 this art had all but died out. It underwent a massive resurgence
when the Klingons were encountered.
It is now considered a proud part of Spanish Culture. In Spain and in many
Spanish influenced areas of the world, swordsmanship demonstrations,
contests and a professional circuit are all seen (although small compared
to, say Soccer)
