Combat & Chivalry

Combat and Chivalry were a huge part of Europe’s history.    As with everything, SCA studies combat and chivalry in all of its varieties.  While all ages are encouraged to participate, there are rules regarding combat in order to provide safety for all participants.  There are many opportunities to practice one’s chosen form of combat.  There are often weekly practices, demo’s, events, and competitions all the way up to competing for knighthood and for the right to sit as king.  You could compete one on one, as a small group, up to hundreds of people on the battle ground at once during events such as Pennsic.
