Belegarth fighting Demo
Belegarth Medieval Combat Society is a fun, safe, and inexpensive sport where participants wear medieval or fantasy-themed clothing and fight with foam-padded weapons. The fighting is hard and fast and has, since 1979, refined into its own brand of martial art. The rules are easy to learn, and after a few practices, you'll be hooked! Most groups base themselves loosely on Tolkein's Middle Earth, but this isn't a requirement. You choose the character you want to portray; if you can dream it, you can do it. The amount of effort you to put into your characterization is up to you; Belegarth provides a great environment for both serious role players and those who would rather just fight. With Belegarth Medieval Combat Society groups all over the world, so come out and meet the fighters from the group near you! https://www.facebook.com/Belegarth-80474657395 Sunday 11:15 - 12:00 Main Stage Also, join Belegarth for Fighting lessons in the Valhalla Courtyard!
