    It kind of comes from before that - the romans apparently marched to the left.

    Whether that's an actual reason or not is a matter of historical debate...

    In a Mad Max world, these Larpers would come at you with real blades and shields. And they've had training that was pretty much, full contact. Some of the old guys boast to me that they've been doing this since the 1980's and have pics to prove it.

    And a lot of them really get into this kind of medieval lifestyle.....they make their own weapons, real armor (in leather, chain mail, etc., clothing, shoes, and most are really into camping.

    I would think that such training would especially be highly advantageous in most of the world where carrying a gun is not permitted...nor even possession is allowed.
