About Medieval Combat Society
We are a community that teaches and practices historical western martial arts from the medieval period. We specialise in re-enactment style combat with blunt steel weapons, but also occasionally fight with synthetic wasters. We teach both 1-on-1 "duel" style combat and team-vs-team "battle" style combat. Current restrictions notwithstanding, we meet twice a week on Wednesdays and Sundays. Weapons and protective equipment are provided by the society, but members with their own are free to use them provided they have been confirmed to be safe.
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
