Armored Fighting

One of the most well-known and widely-enjoyed activities in the SCA is armored combat. Our warriors participate in tournaments for individuals and teams, tactical melees involving dozens of combatants, and even large-scale wars with thousands of participants! Unlike reenactments of battles from history, our combat activities are unchoreographed and the outcome is entirely based on the skill and training of the combatants involved.

Next meeting: Thursdays and Sundays
Location: Thursday: Lemon Road Elementary School, 7230 Idylwood Road, Falls Church, VA 22043
