Belegarth or The Belegarth Medieval Combat Society is a foam weapon live action role-playing game operating as a nonprofit corporation. It features realms that compete in regional and national events annually. Each realm may be composed of a few to over a hundred players and in every realm, combat practices may be held as typical routines several times in a week. What makes Belegarth distinct from other boffer or foam weapon combat games is the physical contact between players during combat. Shield bashes, hard hitting, grappling, and other forms of contact to simulate combat are allowed in Belegarth.

Marshals or referees in yellow cloaks oversee Belegarth games and they determine scores based on the number of forceful enough blows that land on any of the four target zones: the torso, legs, arms, and head. While the head is considered a target zone, it is illegal to use melee weapons to hit it (basically due to risk reasons). Player death means a hit in the torso or head or hits landing in any combination of two extremities.
