What is SCA?
My knees bother me a bit, but the overall uptick in flexibility and stamina, not to mention being able to fall safely, more than compensate.

SCA is the Society for Creative Anachronism, a medieval recreation group that I was active with in the 90s. I fought sword and shield, and also did a bit of rapier (Renaissance style fencing, in the round).
