Greetings Unto the East Kingdom,
Youth Play and Combat
If the youths are old enough to be in any of the youth divisions and are conducting sword fighting at an SCA event – a cornerstone of which is sword fighting – then it needs to comply with the requirements of youth combat regardless of whether the weapons are constructed at home or commercially constructed. This includes proper armor, technique, safety and a youth marshal. The youth marshal shall then determine if the “nerf” sword complies with standards for the appropriate division before any contact between youths.
Yours in Service,
Baron Sir Jibril al-Dakhil,
East Kingdom Earl Marshal
