Medieval Sport Fighters Meet For ‘Battle’

DagohirA piece of history comes to Wichita in the form of medieval sport fighting.

Dozens of people met for battle in Riverside Park Sunday. The Wichita Chapter of Dagorhir (pronounced dagger-here) organized the “Invasion.” Participants dressed up in combat gear complete with foam weapons for the clash.

Chapters across the nation gather for the organized games which follow the honor system for reporting injuries. Swords, spears and bows and arrows aided in battlefield tactics. The goal? Be the last unit standing after battle.

Organizer, Zechariah Smith, aka General Martok of The House of Martok, hope today’s event could be the start of many games to come.
