Join us in battle! We will do Belegarth-style medieval combat in Englischer Garten on the lawn 200m 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. Thomas Schmidt will be running fighting this weekend.
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.
