About Thrown Weapons

The use of Thrown Weapons started in the stone age. Archaeological evidence indicates that Neanderthals employed a wooden spear as a thrusting weapon, while Cro-Magnons used the spear for throwing at both human and animal targets. From these primitive beginnings, weapons and styles evolved into a variety of forms. The primary ones that we use in the SCA are the knife, axe, and spear.

Most events have Thrown Weapons competitions for both adults and children; many have open throwing times as well. Everyone is welcome to participate regardless of skill level.

How to Participate

Thrown Weapons practice is held most Sundays from 12pm to 2pm during winter months and 11am to 2pm during the summer at our practice range on the property of Baron Andrew Turnbull and Mistress Kyna Terricsdottir at 4200 E Franklin Rd Norman, OK 73026. Practice is not held if there is a conflicting event, if the weather does not allow, or if no marshals are available to run it. Check the Facebook group or email list for announcements each week.

Loaner gear is available at practice. If you bring your own knives, axes, or spears, they must be inspected by a Marshal for safety before use.

Children over the age of 6 are welcome to throw at both practices and (most) events, but must have a parent or guardian present and supervising.

Practices are on hold at this time due to Covid-19 restrictions, but this page will be updated as soon as our activities resume.
