Valor & Honor tournament!

by sikbitz

The 2016 Valor & Honor tournament where people dress up in suits of armor and bash the crap out of each other!

Both men and women in different weight categories fight one-on-one battles.

Three rounds at three minutes a round!

Points in the discipline (which has grown in popularity in Russia over the past 20 years) are awarded for hits using swords, shields, knees, feet and fists, with scores doubling for strikes that destabilize the opponent, and knockout victories secured if the beaten knight cowers in defeat or loses consciousness!

It turns out these people actually tour all over europe to fight each other, below is the video for the biggest tournament, the Battle of the Nations, knights from different countries not only brawl individually, but in teams of five and 21, in front of audiences in excess of 20,000!
