This weekend long event will be held at Chateau de Camville, under the soaring pines and beautiful landscapes in the Shire of Mountains Gate (El Dorado County)! The concept of our first Armored Combative Arts Retreat is to give the participants a chance to really immerse themselves in the study of Armored Combat as practiced by the SCA and other WMA groups. We will be working from the ground up, focusing on Balance, Footwork, Timing, Aspects of Attack and Aspects of Defense. The event begins on Friday afternoon and concludes Sunday afternoon. The format for the event will be composed of classes (in and out of armor), drills, and sparring. There will also be a mock tournament (or Pas de Arms) on Sunday for those who wish to participate.
