First Fighter Practice? What to expect.

So you are interested in trying out one of the martial activities in the SCA.  That is great, we are always happy to have new people come and experience the fun with us.  While we have loner equipment for each of the different marshal activities, there are a few things you may want to have or bring with you.

Make sure you wear comfortable clothing and shoes that allow you to move freely, athletic garments are best.  If you are interested in doing rapier combat you will need to have long sleeves and pants without holes.

Long hair should be secured in such away to keep it from getting in your eyes.  If you need to wear glasses to see, having a sports strap to hold them in place is a good idea.

Males are required to wear groin protection, while external boxing cups are available to borrow, if you have one of your own please bring it.

If you have any questions email the Knight Marshal or Rapier Marshal at;, or
