Arts and Combat Featured in Northshield Demo

Can a fighter accomplish a cartwheel in full armor? Well... maybe. Mike Prahl gave it a try in 40 pounds of plate as he demonstrated his skill along with other members of the Shire of Rivenwood Tower in Mankato, Minnesota. Free Press reporter Sara Gilbert Frederick had the story.

“I can take a nap in it,” said Prahl. “I can get in my pickup and drive. But I can’t do a cartwheel.”

Other members demonstrated needlework and chainmail.
