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/,  the SCA's website http://sca.org/chivarts.html, or on women fighters in the SCA http://swordmaiden.com/

Here are some SCA fencers in action at a WealdLake event:
