Mission Statement: The sport of Medieval fighting has gained a great deal of national recognition in recent years, yet we continue to divide ourselves into small, secluded groups, keeping us from presenting a united face to the world at large. We believe that our sport is larger than we think; and although some of us prefer heavier or lighter combat, more or less roleplaying, and so forth, we believe there is more that unites us than divides us.
The primary goal of Battle for the Ring is to provide an intense and excellent fighting and social experience to our experienced and returning fighters. At the same time, we hope to use Battle for the Ring to introduce new fighters who have never been to a national event, as well as cross-sport fighters who are interested in our method of play, to the national Belegarth community. We are dedicated to creating an enjoyable and educational experience for new fighters, fostering unity and good relations across sports, and ultimately creating a friendly, mutually supportive community through which the sport of Medieval Combat can grow in strength, popularity, and fame.
