Sword Knight Boot Camp

About SKBC

SKBC is an event held strictly to address the hand-to-hand fighting aspects of Amtgard. There are no battlegames, quests, roleplaying, court, or gaming classes. Classes are held to instruct on different styles of Amgard combat (Single Sword, Florentine, Sword and Shield, etc.), as taught by a number of Swords Knights (a majority of which are Warlords).

Sir Guy Kasama came up with the concept of SKBC in early 2003. While discussing the idea with friends, the SKBC idea was fleshed out most notably by Sir Guy Kasama and Sir Cedric Pentacles. After talking the idea over with several other Knights, FWACK was created as the governing body behind SKBC, and the event was born.

Unlike many other events, the location for SKBC is not static, but instead changes where it is hosted every year. The organizing committee takes bids and chooses a site based on how good the bids are and how needed the instruction is in an area.
