Medieval Kids Reporter: Sarah Larsen INTRO: Back in the medieval times knights would fight to protect the King or Queen. But when they weren't fending off large armies they also liked to entertain people by showing off their fighting skills. Sarah went to meet some kids who are keeping this tradition alive by dressing up as knights and engaging in medieval combat.
SARAH LARSEN, REPORTER: In a time after school In a land ruled by the tyranny of homework and video games.
A group of knights take arms and fight...
For... well, for fun mostly.
Medieval swordplay might not be quite what you expect at an after school sport, but here at Indes medieval swordplay kids are taught to expect the unexpected.
INSTRUCTOR: Out of my way! Out of my way! Wrong way!
Every week they get together to learn how to wield a sword, a spear, a dagger and a whole bunch of other weapons that you don't see much these days.
KID: This is a halberd it's not a real one as you can see it's made of leather.
REPORTER: What are you guys doing here?
KIDS: I'm unarming here so I can defend myself against a dagger; an assassination attempt.
REPORTER: That sounds handy.
Don't worry, there'll be no real stabbing here. The weapons the kids train with are safe and they wear protective gear. But in medieval times learning these moves could be the difference between life and death.
KID: Well it's like telling you how to be like a medieval knight how to behave like one and how to do the techniques and to learn how to do battles and know more about the history that knights did long ago Medieval is a word used to describe a period of European history that lasted from the 5th to the 15th centuries. In that time Europe was divided into lots of kingdoms.
Knights were noble warriors sworn to protect the king.
KID: So if the Germans were fighting against the French for instance then the French would need to defend against their country and their king which is the most important part and they need to defend their king so the king can go on ruling Knights of old would also display their skills in tournaments; mock battles put on for entertainment. And that sort of thing still goes on today.
Around the world there are many clubs dedicated to learning the art of medieval battle and displaying it at medieval festivals like this.
There are also big national and international competitions. And while these modern knights fight for fun it takes a lot of skill.
KID: Well you have to get your footwork like minor details that people might not think of but they are major like you have to do the right footwork you have to do the right sword work like one bad stroke and you might die.
Many of the techniques they use come from ancient sources which have been preserved and translated.
KIDS: This is a book form Bavaria it's from 1457 it's by it's one of the manuscripts we use for fighting.
Medieval books also tell of the knight's code of chivalry, a set of values like courage, generosity and courtesy that knights were expected to show at all time. And that's a big part of lessons here.
KID: I think you could learn to be honourable to other people you could also show courtesy to the rest of the people especially your family and you can always be courageous.
Maybe that chivalry is why knights remain so popular in stories, films and TV shows and why so many kids and grown-ups dream of wielding a sword like knights of old.
Closer Don't worry Sarah survived!
Well that's it for the show.
