Welcome to the AEMMA pas d'armes combatants' page. The structure of the pas d'armes at AEMMA focuses on "combats on foot" only and encompasses numerous attributes of a late 14th and early 15th centuries balanced to satisfy the expectations of the spectators in a 21st century context by allowing them to witness extraordinary unscripted single armoured combats, while preserving the historical attributes and providing opportunities for the combatants to demonstrate their prowess and technique through the challenges presented in the bouts by the defendants or tenans (the home team) and all the while, maintaining a strong foothold in its historical counterpart.


All combatants, both defendants and appellants will be required to participate in the opening and closing procession and ceremonies. These activities are of low complexity, and everyone involved will be instructed as to what to do, and where to go by the Procession Herald.
