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.

MARTIAL PRACTICE NOTICE

ATTENTION! Martial practices have resumed for armored/heavy and rapier

Sunday Armored/Heavy practices will be Tysons-Pimmit Park at 12:00PM.

Starting Thursday, Nov 4th, indoor Rapier practices will be at Shrevewood Elementary School at 6:30PM.

See the calendar for more info about times and locations.

Practice is geared to developing beginning and intermediate fighters through intensive hands on training with experienced instructors, as well to providing ample opportunity for more advanced fighters to spar with knight level combatants. All are welcome.
