Last Sunday saw the Barony’s Foundations of Combat Intake 1 class and Beginner’s Rapier class kick off for 2015.
It was wonderful to see both classes so well attended. We hope all participants have a brilliant time building their skills. Next Sunday sees an Ultimate Fighter Tournament prior to class so feel free to come along early and watch the Barony’s more experienced fighters and fencers take the tournament field! Opens at 10.
Few activities can match the colour, romance, and excitement of the medieval tournament of chivalry. Knights and Squires, Lords and Ladies compete with one another in displays of prowess and honour.
The Beginner’s Combat Course aims to introduce the fundamental principles and techniques of tournament combat, construction of swords and shields along with some of the etiquette and culture of SCA tournaments.
Venue – Ainslie Scout Hall, corner of Ebden St and Hassall St, AINSLIE.
Cost $20+ weekly Insurance $5 or SCA membership.
Classes are at 6:30pm on Wednesdays with a repeat class Sunday at 2:30pm
All equipment is supplied
