Professionally run medieval combat days for for children and adults, using specially constructed realistic looking high density foam swords, axes, maces, spears and shields that are typically used in Live Action Roleplay (LARP). This fighting equipment means that you have the freedom to engage in light contact medieval combat without the need of any restrictive protective equipment.
The day starts with a safety brief and basic tuition in effective martial techniques delivered by one of the best sword fighters in the country, so that you can not only fight with control but also start to appreciate the skill involved in medieval combat.
You will then be split into two rival factions, who will be pitted against each other in a whole range of scenario based team battles, such as Bridge of Death, Kill the Prince, Invader and Battle-line.
All Warrior days will be run by Mark Gilbert a swordfighting champion and highly experienced instructor who is First aid qualified and has event insurance.
