One of the most visible aspects of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is martial combat. This combat may take many forms, such as, adult rattan combat, fencing and youth combat forms. Periodically, the Shire of Stormsport hosts practices in order to develop knowledge and skill in these martial forms. We encourage fighters of all skill levels to come and participate in these practices, from absolute beginners through the most experienced knights.
Absolute beginners are not allowed to fight at formal SCA events prior to becoming “authorized” for combat (authorization requires knowledge of the rules of combat and basic ability to participate safely). In order to become authorized, a fighter must work with experienced fighters at local practices in order to gain the knowledge and ability necessary for authorization.
The purpose of these practices is to further develop the skill of the individual fighter and to develop team tactics and strategies for melee combat. Practices consist of varying amounts of open sparring, drills, and lectures on SCA combat; depending on the number, experience, and desires of those fighters present.
Currently, shire practices consist primarily of adult rattan combat. If there is an interest in other marital forms (fencing or youth activities), arrangements will be made to provide visiting instructors as available.
Fight Practices will be held Sundays from 3:00pm-6:00pm at Edinboro's Frank G. Pogue Student Centerr. For any additional questions, contact our Knight Marshal.
All non-authorized individuals must sign an SCA waiver.
