Please note that this is a full LARP combat activity, so bring some extra layers as there are some gaps in the body armor. The body armor is designed to give you more mobility during the session, so the joints are exposed in some areas.

What is LARP Combat?

LARP Combat or Live-Action Role-playing Combat is using foam weapons in an activity. The general rules we follow have been adapted to our session to ensure participants are safe when engaged with the activity. For example, no head strikes or you will be disqualified, No stabbing actions as the weapons have a glass-fibre core which could bruises and serious injury to the other participant.

LARP is a type of role-playing game in which participants physically act out scenarios, typically using costumes and props. Please note that this is not HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts). We do not allow full contact (punching, kicking, grappling) in our session.
