Greetings, all. I’ve set up this site in recent days to provide a home for information related to our local youth combat activity here in the New York City region, as well as more general commentary that might be applicable to youth combat activities throughout the Society for Creative Anachronism.

I’ve started by posting some archived photos from events over the last year, and notes I’ve previously written up for parents about how to get involved.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch!

Balfar’s Challenge

We drove up to Dragonship Haven for Balfar’s Challenge, but somehow I neglected to snap any photos of the youth fighters at the event.

My thanks to Lord Cedric of Armorica, the marshal-in-charge for this event.

Miles, one of our fighters from Østgarđr, took second place in the tournament and won a lovely piece of rattan to use for making a pole arm or other great weapon.


The East Kingdom’s youth combat season kicks off every year at Mudthaw in Settmour Swamp. We had twenty kids in armor, and held well-contested tournaments in divisions II and III.

This was the largest event I’ve managed to date, and I was lucky to have Lady Eikaterine and Karrah the Mischievous on hand to marshal, and Judith the Confused managing the paperwork at the list table.
