Are you the swordsman who faces there foe with blade and shield or maybe the spearman who takes their opponent from afar. These are but the few choices of many you have to participate in this discipline.
Those that participate in this activity wear 16th Century or earlier armor to encourage a more medieval experience. You must wear armor that covers the following parts of your body:
