Medieval battles with padded weapons

Join us in battle! We will do Belegarth-style medieval combat in Englischer Garten on the lawn a bit south-west of the lake (see 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.

    @Arnaud: No problem, it doesn't take long to learn the rules.

      Sorry about last last time! My squash game ended up much later than I expected (I won by a quarter of an inch ^^). So I didn't manage to make it in time. Maybe next week ;)

      Smurf happens, but congrats on your victory by a sliver. This coming Sunday should be even better.

      The loaner weapons are also free to use at practice. We do this for fun, not to make money.

    Would it be ok if I joined at like 1pm?
    I have a squash game at 11am ;)

    Also, I've never done it, but from your description, looks like that's no problem.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
