The SCA offers Three Musketeers-style fencing and cut-and-thrust weapons fighting one-on-one, in small groups, and amongst hundreds of people at a time.
To participate in fencing you will need to learn our rules, procedures, and customs, and acquire armor and weapons. We have a fencing marshal who will happily guide you along the path to becoming a qualified fencer, which means that you have been approved for safety in regards to yourself and others.
As for armor, you will need at least an enclosed helmet and protection for neck & throat, and varying grades of protection elsewhere. The fencing marshal will guide you in acquiring suitable equipment. We have some loaner equipment for use during instruction.
When fighting, you will choose one or more types of weapons, including rapier, saber, dagger, cloak, small shield, etc.
If you’re interested in fencing, please contact our marshal and express your interest, and attend one of our weekly meetings to get going.
Myrkfaelinn does have a Youth Fencing Marshal who instructs children as young as age 6 in this martial art. Loaner gear is available for them to use while learning to fence.
