Armorless Combat Explored in Historic Swordsmanship Study

A draft of a proposal to allow the study of Historic Swordsmanship techniques for heavy and light SCA fighting is now online. A draft of a proposal for new techniques for non-competitive fighting in the SCA is available online for comment. The Historic Swordsmanship Study would allow re-enactors to try out techniques such as wrestling and blunt weapons handling in a controlled, non-armored setting. The guidelines are intended for study by Kingdom Marshals to determine if the new techniques are safe.
