Something New


I have this immense interest in the middle ages, so for a short while now I’ve been wanting to check out the SCA (the Society of Creative Achronism), an internationally recognized group that imitates the life, culture and ideals of the Middle Ages. Here on the Sunshine Coast, the focus is on the martial arts (sword fighting). Since I’m most interested in medieval warfare, sword fighting is definately a technique that I want to learn.

I went down to Dougall park last night, met some of the people involved with the group and even learnt a few tricks with the (wooden) sword. I spent only one hour with the group, but that hour was long enough for me to discover that I want to get involved more with this group. Besides, it will be great to meet new people and to learn a new skill. Hopefully down the road, I’ll be able to expand on these skills.
