Single Combat is combat between two fighters, with no interference from others. In the SCA it typically occurs in a tournament setting.

When more than two fighters oppose each other, it is called team combat or a melee.

Single combat is often seen as an affair of honour, far more so than in team combat, although in the SCA fighters in both types of combat are expected to disport themselves chivalrously.
