The clash of steel blades and cavalier flair live on in the SCA!
Rapier combat in the SCA attempts to recreate styles of swordfighting from the late Renaissance, often based on period manuals and theories of combat. This foundation of style and finesse has since evolved into the modern sport of fencing, but unlike the modern sport, our participants use a wide variety of weapons and body protection, and have freedom of movement in any direction. Rapier combatants face off in one-on-one bouts and also in larger melees and wars.
