Armoured Combat is the single most seen and heard activity with the SCA. We’ve all see the movies of knights in battle, single combat and wars, and possibly we have all had that little dream of donning armour and having a go. Here in the SCA you have that opportunity.
Learn the skills and techniques of knights of yore, based on a system of honour and chivalry. Armoured Combat is not choreographed, it is full contact and full speed. Complete with armour and weapons made of rattan (a relative of bamboo that allows you to land blows on your armored opponent without inflicting major injuries). Where else can you go on a weekend, don armour, kill a few people and live to tell the tales?
