Belegarth is a nationwide medieval combat society that has become well-known to Missoulians for its club meetings Sundays in Bonner Park. The group, which has over 50 members, dons medieval garb and practices fighting with large foam swords and shields. “It’s more of a martial art and less of the scene from Role Models,” says Shane ‘Valas’ Heivley, a member of Belegarth since 2003. Heivley enjoys the exercise medieval combat offers as well as the community, which allows you to pick up an alias on the battlefield. “Don’t get me wrong, we’re kind of geeks,” he says, “but not a bunch of dorks throwing fireballs at each other.”
