To rhino-hide in combat is to not call, either deliberately or unconsiously, blows that land on-target. A reputation for rhino-hiding is one that most good SCA combatants studiously avoid, as it's hard to shake the spectre of being a "cheater." The term arises from the fact that the skin of a rhino is very thick, ergo a rhino might not feel or respond to a blow that would harm a lesser animal.
