The Red Belt Test
By Seamas Mac Daibhid & THL Moira Nic Bryn
Last Additions April XLII (2008)
In recent years my lady Moira and I have noticed that some people aren't sure just what makes an SCA fighter a Red Belt. After all, you don't wear the darn belt all the time. Even when you do wear it, well, the most common form of color-blindness is Red-Green, especially among men. For all you know, you could really be Apprentice to a Laurel instead of Squire to a Knight.
Lady Moira and I think we can help. After some discussion, we've worked out a bunch of the principal characteristics of a Red Belt. If you aren't sure about yourself, take this simple quiz and the matter should clear right up. Good luck!
