In the Middle Ages, courage could be proved on a battlefield. Knights were wearing battle armor and fought valiantly for their lives. That time a sword decided fate of men. Much time has passed since then, but the values, brave warriors of those times appreciated, have survived to our days and that’s why such sport as historical medieval battle (HMB) develops actively.
HMB is echo of the past, allowing men to show their real nature, as well as enjoy all the things the full-grown sport offers. And unlike in medieval battles, safety in HMB sport is one of the most important components, which is proved by the international set of rules on equipment, weapons and combat behavior.
A lot of HMB tournaments are organized around the world. The number of participants is growing. Since 2010, the HMB World Championship "Battle of the Nations" is being held. It brings together teams of many countries (from the USA to Japan) to compete for the title of the best fighter.
Anyone can join and become a follower of this wonderful sport. Almost every major city has a club dealing with historical medieval battles, which is always ready to take bold and courageous guys willing to test themselves.
