Harlem knight fight!
A short video by MEL films giving you a glimps of Damion DiGrazia, the leader of a medieval fight club that’s hell bent on becoming the best in the world at this fast evolving sport!
For Damion DiGrazia, joining the Air Force, graduating from Harvard and Columbia and putting together a lucrative career as a management consultant at a top investment bank in Manhattan wasn’t enough. He had one more, slightly less conventional item for the bucket list. When this Sunday school teacher isn’t spreading the Good Word, he prefers a metal fist to the teeth. DiGrazia is the captain of the New York chapter of the Armored Combat League — a sort of medieval fight club whose members smash the hell out of each other while dressed like attendees of the Red Wedding in Game of Thrones. “This is a sport that requires passion,” he explains. “Because there’s no responsible way to do it.” We met with Damion at his East Harlem training studio and followed his team to their regional matchup with New England.
I made a previous post about Valor & honor, a European tournament that even hosts 21 v 21 matches so be sure to check it out!
