There are two main categories of fighting in the Society for Creative Anachronism. The more public and popular is what we refer to as Hardsuit fighting. These are the knights in full armor who fight with rattan swords and shields. They’re great people. But they aren’t the only people who fight.
The other side of the fighting is the rapier community who wear modern fencing masks and fight with actual steel swords in order to recreate Renaissance and Late Middle Ages sword fighting through both manual and instructor teaching.
They. Are. Different. When you talk about SCA fighting you cannot only talk about the Hardsuit fighters (KNIGHTS). Just clarifying this for everyone who only thinks of the knights in armor when they think of SCA fighting.
They. Are. Different.
