Armoured Combat

What Are the Requirements to Participate?

The basic requirements to participate in armoured combat is to be at least 16 years of age, have closed toe shoes and appropriate groin protection. Men and women are equally welcome to participate.

What Equipment Will I Need to Get Started?

Most groups have loaner armour that one can use while they try out the sport.

Once one decides to pursue armoured combat, then there are many resources on fashioning armour.

The basic requirements for arms and armour are as found here in the society marshal’s handbook. http://www.sca.org/officers/marshal/docs/marshal_handbook.pdf

What is Authorization?

An Authorization deems the fighter safe for combat. In Ealdormere, this entails knowing and understanding the rules of the list, fighting while calling all blows (good and light), fighting while under stress, fighting on their knees, fighting with their off hand, and finally a bout taking all blows and dying defensively. If one is able to pass this test, then they are authorized for combat in Ealdormere.
