We have three decade's experience researching and conducting medieval-style feats of arms. But many of our combatants also compete in HEMA.
Our students experience chivalry both by reading and by exercising themselves in arms, through the mechanism of renown.
ARMS & ARMOUR
We train with a variety of weapon simulators and protective gear, but we encourage our students to wear authentic shoes, clothing, & armour.

The SSG grew out of the first "tournament company," the Company of Saint George, in 1999. Since then we've hosted international symposia, tournaments, growing across the U.S. and into Europe. Along the way we've learned a bit!
