Want to get involved with rapier fighting? Late in the period covered by the SCA, the art of the fence had become fashionable. Rapier fighters use a long blade (blunted for safety) and an off-hand implement to emulate styles taught by classical fencing masters. Protective face shields (typically a standard fencing mask) are worn as well as protective padded clothing. Myrgan Wood encourages men and women of all ages to participate. Loaner equipment is available. Please contact our current Rapier Champion, Ansel Derris, for more information and to arrange for lessons at practices.
