Rapier Combat

Rapier combat has been popular in the shire for many years now. It involves attempting to recreate the style of armed combat practiced by civilians during the Renaissance, and (thanks to recently expanded SCA rapier rules) slightly earlier. This is the style of combat that eventually turned into the modern sport of Olympic fencing.

The Shire of Adamastor holds weekly rapier practices. As with armoured combat, there are strict safety regulations to which we adhere, but these are not difficult to apply, and we have loaner gear. Anyone interested in trying rapier combat or wanting to learn more is welcome to contact the rapier marshal.
