Medieval battles with padded weapons

We will do Belegarth-style medieval combat in Englischer Garten on the lawn a bit south-west of the lake (see http://goo.gl/maps/5ael9). All are welcome, beginners and on-lookers too. Instructions are in English and/or German.

Bring water and loose-fitting clothes that can stand getting sweaty and dirty. Boots with ankle support, knee protection or leather gloves are also good. We will postpone in case of heavy rain or very slippery ground.

Belegarth is full-speed, full-contact, free-form medieval combat using heavily padded swords, shields, flails, etc. The rules are simple, the weapons are safe, and the experience is the closest you'll get to being on in an actual battlefield of the Dark Ages. Anyone can join, no experience nor armor needed. We have a large number of medieval weapons available, from swords over axes and flails to bow and arrow. Any number of people can join, the more the merrier.

    I do not have proper clothing to fight in this kind of weather (mud/very slippery grass) so I will join you next time. Best wishes!

    Hi, I would like to know because I would then have to leave soon too.

    Are we still on for today? I ask because of rain, and I will have to leave in about 40 minutes to get to the park on time.

    Hi Lars, It's raining, should we postpone it or do you have any other plan?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
