    Battle Of The Nations

    ooohellyeah now this is good sport!

    USA vs Russia



    Battle of the Nations (Medieval Tournament) - Wiki

    The Battle of the Nations is an international historical medieval battles world championship, first held in 2009, and held in Europe in April every year since. It is a full contact competition, using metal weapons, and a standardized list of rules. National teams in HMB compete at the championship in several standard nominations, including "Triathlon Duel", "Professional fights", "5 vs 5", "21 vs 21" and "all vs all". All battles are full contact, no stage reenactment battles are organized at the championship.

    Awesome. Some hacked limbs and cracked heads. I'm down.

    This is what the Olympics needs.

    USA not a traditional powerhouse in these events. Coming to them 500 years later than Russia.

    Somebody needs to pick this up for American TV... it'd be perfect for History Channel.

    Troodat.

    I guess I should read up on the rules... I'm not sure what constitutes a kill. Seems like no stabbing allowed, just hack and slash.

    Dunno.. I'm not familiar with that. Is that a LARP type event?

    One thing to keep in mind with these armored bashing sports such as BotN, HMB, M1, etc is that it's not really representative of lethal sword combat.. its more like those non lethal medieval tournaments of old.

    The HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) leagues on the otherhand is the more serious representation of what medieval sword combat would have been like as far as techniques and fighting styles are concerned. These guys are from the swedish chapter of HEMA..

    Keep off jousting, whatever: it buggered up Henry V111 entirely. History would have been very different if he'd preferred chess.
