Activities combat

Armoured combat in the SCA is full force, full speed and full impact! 


Tournaments are held at most events and are a thrilling spectacle.

There are minimum armour requirements that ensure fighters can fight again the next day and come away with nothing more serious than a few colourful bruises!

Fighters can choose to fight with swords, axes, spears, pole arms, maces... pretty much anything goes! The weapons themselves are made from rattan (a wood similar to bamboo) and this allows fighters to go hard at each other and experience the full adrenalin rush of battle.

Cluain fighters practice their skills on Wednesday nights at Innes Common, at the Hamilton lake. Loaner gear is available so if you would like to know more or get involved, contact the Cluain Marshal.

You can find more information on the SCA Martial Arts page.
