Myrmidon is a chapter of Dagorhir Battle Games Association based out of Norwalk, Connecticut. Dagorhir is fast-paced full-contact medieval style combat with padded weapons. We use swords, shields, spears, axes, grappling, offensive shield work, archery, and more! No spells or classes, just straight up sword bashing.

Myrmidon takes its name from the greek warriors that banded as a group of mercenaries to conquer their enemies for gold and glory. We practice every week and regularly attend campout events and day battles over the summer. Campout events typically have 200-300 attendees, with the largest event being Ragnarok with nearly 2000 attendees. Events have a variety of scenarios including capture the flag, castle siege, bridge battle, rescue the princess, etc. Participants wear garb for the entirety of the event and the scene is similar to a renaissance fair. See our event calendar for upcoming events!

Dagorhir is a non-profit organization and does not charge any fees to participate. We have tons of loaner gear for new members, no experience necessary! If you have any questions please see our FAQ section or send us an email at for more information!
