Like knights in the times of old, in Starleaf Gate we like to refine our skills in close quarters combat. None is more brutal than the heavy armoured combat. Every fighter dawns a set of heavy armor and is thrust into a world of combat. Each fighter may use a wide arsenal of weapons, stemming from a sword and shield, to spear, polearm, mace, greatsword and many others.
Because of the dangerous nature of this sport, all safety guidelines, and rules of engagement are performed in accordance with the rules set by the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism). These rules include minimum armor requirements as well as weapon safety standards and the chivalry code in which the sport is conducted.
For further information on the rules and regulations in which perform our martial activities, please see the SCA Marshall’s Handbook
