“You can either watch Brave Heart or you can live it”

“Some people ride motorcycles for excitement, some ski, some sky dive — this is what I do," Doug Turnage told reporter James Coreas of the North Texas Daily about fighter practice in the SCA Canton of Glaslyn in Denton, Texas.

Turnage and James Phillips described armored combat within the SCA and contrasted it with renaissance fairs. SCA fighting wins. “You can either watch Braveheart or you can live it,” said Turnage.
