WHERE MEDIEVAL BATTLES COME TO LIFE

ABOUT HISTORICAL MEDIEVAL BATTLE

Historical Medieval Battles or Buhurt or Armored Combat is a modern full contact fighting sport with steel blunt weapons characteristic for the Middle Ages. Fighters are covered in full modern produced protective armour, made from steel, (or other permitted metal alloy) that is as aesthetically close to their historical counterparts as possible. Unlike staged battles, that can be seen at festivals of historical reenactment of the middle ages, the competitions in buhurt are the full contact sporting events that are refereed by Knight Marshals who have special training and combat experience.​​​​​​​
