Women of the Armored Combat League by LadyArwynn16 Women of the Armored Combat League by LadyArwynn16
The first women to compete at the National tournament for the Armored Combat League. October 2013 in Springfield, IL. It is full contact, steel medieval combat sport.

"Armored Combat League (ACL) was founded to promote the development of the International Medieval Combat Federation (IMCF) in the United States (USA). After Team USA – Battle of the Nations debut in Poland 2012 it was decided a league would need to be formed. Also the ACL would need to recruit members for the USA team: USAKnights, however, its primary mission is the promotion and growth of steel combat in the USA using the historical medieval battles international rule set."

I think they look lovely, and I being as I know one of them very well id hate to say that I think you are a very small minded person "Retroborg" being a male who quite avidly participates in SCA and live steal fighting I have to say that I think that a woman who can don armour and go out there shoulder to shoulder with the best of them, then to watch them turn around and transform into a princess with a hand made gown. Gets my blood boiling more than any flight of fancy SciFi representation of amazon warriors you might prefer.. Though you probably should go look up Scythian....

best of luck to you Retroborg, in what ever you are looking for in life, it certainly is not here.
