For most classes, the only required gear is YOU! While we encourage members to have gear and engage in free-play, and a lack of gear may limit your ability to engage in some advanced drills, it is not a requirement for a member to have gear to participate.
If you are interested in purchasing gear, we recommend members purchase at least a strong protective mask, a pair of padded gloves, and a synthetic training sword. Other recommended equipment would be a gorget or other reinforced throat guard, as well as pads for the elbows and knees.
Recommended vendors are Purpleheart Armoury, South Coast Swords and HEMA Supplies
If you already own gear that you think may be appropriate, please contact us for clarification to ensure all parties are on the same page for this topic.
