Interactive Demonstrations for the Classroom

Did a knight’s armor really shine? How many squires did it take to arm a knight? What was a knight’s most expensive purchase? Could a knight get up if he were knocked over? Did a knight need a crane to get on his horse?

Knyghtly Armes seeks to foster a love of history in the next generation. Designed to make history both educational and entertaining, our presentation can be modified to fit your current curriculum. We understand that classes have very limited budgets. Our fees are primarily dependent upon the travel costs associated with reaching your chosen venue.

Do you have follow-up questions that you forgot to bring up? Feel free to contact us even after we have gone. We will be happy to answer your email correspondence.

Workshop Seminars

Unlike some eastern martial arts which have been handed down from generation to generation, knightly combat completely died out for hundreds of years. It has only been in the past few decades that a growing number of historical fighting treatises, primarily from the fifteenth-century, are being re-printed and made available to the public. Much of material in these “fightbooks” is dedicated to armoured combat.

Knightly Armes strives to dispel the many myths and misconceptions long been perpetuated by Hollywood and popular culture. Allow us to demonstrate how properly-fitted armour really works.

Next Live Demonstration

We have been invited to conduct an interactive educational program entitled "A Knight in Shining Armour: At Tournament and at War" on Wednesday, June 17, from 4 to 5 pm at the South Branch Public Library on 3228 Teasley Lane in Denton, Texas. Unlike the lumbering oaf often depicted in movies and television, the fifteenth-century Knight was able to run, fight, climb a ladder, mount a horse, and command the men around him. His armor was not a bulky metal shell; it fit him like a modern, tailored suit. Medieval tournaments were more than extreme sporting events. They also served as important training grounds, allowing competitors to hone the skills that would keep them alive on the battlefield.
A Knight in Shining Armor is an interactive educational program focused on dispelling many of the myths and misconceptions perpetuated about the medieval knight in popular culture.
