Fencing or rapier in the SCA

At many venues, we have had Adult fencing or rapier demonstrated. At most SCA events, fencing for both youth and adults is available for you to test your skill against the other fencers of the realm. A new style starting to take hold for adults is Cut and Thrust. The regulations for equipment may vary from Kingdom to Kingdom,. However, the one rule that is always applied - Safety First!

For information on the web, you can go to the Kingdom's website http://www.midrealm.org/marshal/,  or the SCA's website https://www.sca.org/resources/martial-activities/rapier-combat/. To see fighters in action, there are weekly fighter practices close to Wealdlake. You can join see the Barony of Cynnabar (Ann Arbor, MI) practice on Sunday afternoons, with information at http://cynnabar.org/marshal, or the North Woods Canton of Ealdnordwuda fighter practice (in Lansing, MI) MSU Agricultural Pavillion (4301 Farm Ln, Lansing, MI 48910) from 6 - 9 p.m. We are outside when the weather is nice; otherwise, we are inside the auditorium to the right of the main doors. Sometimes the Pavillion is not available. For up-to-date information, see their Facebook Group or email their Seneschal, Lady Brigida Alderotti.
