Today I discovered that the Society for Creative Anachronism stages combats on the mezzanine level of the convention center during Comic-Con. The SCA is devoted to the study and preservation of the Middle Ages.

SCA members fight with swords (made of rattan) and real armor (very heavy). They claim to recreate the fun parts of medieval society, like feasts, costumes and sword fighting, and leave out plagues, lice, and beheadings.

After the combats, the participants invite the kids in the crowd to enter the ring and learn how to sword fight. They call it "Whack-a-Knight."
