Our priorities when training for combat are: first safety, second skill, third theatricality. We train with several different weapons, in groups, pairs, and as single warriors, with the goal of safely performing an entertaining show for a live audience.
When there isn’t a pandemic we gather weekly at Coronation Park in Winnipeg for fight practice and have training weekends a few times a year. Hopefully we’ll be able to resume training soon.
All of our training is put to the test on the combat field at the several events we participate at throughout the year. We train and display historical combat strategies such as shield walls, put on theatrical shows based on the Sagas and the Kiddie Vike -inviting children from the audience to fight our warriors with noodle swords.
