Thrown weapons is an excellent sport for a broad range of people regardless of age or physical condition. It does not require any SCA authorization to participate. You show up at a range, read the rules and have fun! A stronger arm also does not guarantee an advantage. Equipment — such as knives, axes, and spears — can be purchased rather inexpensively compared to other EK martial activities. And often there are loaner weapons at the range.
Our first concern is safety: yours, ours, and the other people on the range. Read the rules carefully as there is much more to them than do’s and don’ts.
Our second concern is your enjoyment. We want you to have fun the first time you throw and every time thereafter.
