The Knights

 

The Knights which make up the Swords of Chivalry are the centrepiece of the group. They are the fighters of the group, and it is their honour, bravery and camaraderie that form the main attraction for most of the visitors to our shows.

The fights and tournaments in the shows we put on are not choreographed, which means that each Knight has to be highly skilled in the art of swordsmanship. The element of danger is one of the things that makes our group so special !

Each Knight has to go through a period of training, as a Squire, before he is honoured with the title of Knighthood, bestowed upon him.
