"Medieval Reenactment” is a term that has been misinterpreted for many years in North America by numerous organizations that used it to define their activity. Vast majority of them narrowly focused on combat aspect only, while very few focus on very accurate reenactment of medieval household. Scallagrims Medieval Martial Arts Centre (SMMAC) is striving to re-define the definition of “Medieval Reenactment” by merging the best of above two, as well as to bring combat and reenactment of medieval period to a higher standard.
High quality reenactment of Medieval Warfare was one of the main focuses of the Scallagrims since the time SMMAC was founded. With medieval martial arts tournament champions placed to lead an organization and train its members, we managed to raise group of fearless warriors that specialize in variety of weapons and medieval warfare tactics. As a combat unit, Scallagrims work efficiently on delivering an extreme experience of medieval battles to spectators with maximum accuracy in terms of authenticity.
In late 2007, SMMAC started heavily to invest into reenactment of the Medieval Household and acquire assets that can really transport individual into medieval times without elements of fiction. Currently, we continue aggressive expansion in Medieval Household and Day-to-Day Medieval Life. This makes us one of the prominent groups in Canada, which can not only reenact, but live medieval life.
We strongly believe that the future of the medieval community is in accurate reenactment of the medieval times where is no place for fiction. One of the major objectives that Scallagrims Medieval Martial Centre set for itself in stone is: to create an environment within Canada where entire medieval community will thrive. An environment which will shatter viewers’ perceptions imposed by movies and fabricated facts that served as tools for political manipulations. To create such an environment, we actively promote and encourage private events where medieval re-enactors see each other as friends who came to enjoy the event together, rather than a competition that tries to reserve a place for next commercial event.
