The Barony of Vinhold hosts a fighter practice, Sundays at 3:30pm until 5pm in Fuller Park. We offer free lessons and a sparring practice.  Artisans are often on site, ready to explain and teach medival arts and crafts. 

The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our "Known World" consists of 19 kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Participants, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which may feature tournaments, arts exhibits, classes, workshops, dancing, feasts, and more. Our "royalty" hold courts at which they recognize and honor members for their contributions to the group. For more information, please see our website at http://sca.org.

Thank you for posting this! Folks have asked me about the combat in the park and I suspected it was linked to the Society for Creative Anachronism. I last met some of the Barony of Vinhold folks when I was with the radio station — not the ideal medium for such a visual feast. But one of our video correspondents spotted a battle royal last year: http://napa.patch.com/articles/videos-300-warriors-in-armor-battle-in-napa-park Please add as many photos as you like. This is cool.
