Opening of Ottawa Branch
FULL CONTACT MEDIEVAL MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING
Free of charge for everyone!
Scallagrims Medieval Martial Arts Centre, a not-for-profit medieval martial arts school based in Toronto, has now opened a training location in Ottawa! We are looking for people 18 years of age or older, who are interested in physical activities, history, medieval re-enactment and are willing to become medieval warriors to compete in Historical Medieval Battles (HMB) against other national and international teams at such events as “Battle of the Nations”, “Sword and Fire”, as well as many others.
HMB is a very popular sport in Europe and rapidly gaining popularity within North America. Re-enactors engage in full contact sporting battles, employing historical protective and offensive arms of the Medieval Period. There is an extensive set of rules governing HMB to maximize the safety of participants. Weapons employed are steel, with blunted edges.
Members of Scallagrims also have the opportunity to engage in weapon and armor manufacture/repair process where they learn the ancient techniques of making, improving and upgrading their combat gear.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Scallagrims family, or simply wish to learn more, please drop by one of our practice nights or contact the Ottawa Team Coordinator.
When: Monday evenings from 7 PM to 9 PM
