Full-contact Team fights in authentic armor with accurate replicas of medieval weapons.
Historical Medieval Battle Association or HMBIA, is the international sports organization created to develop, support and promote HMB sport – unique combination of the true sport action and historical cultural heritage. Historical Medieval Battles (HMB) are full contact sports fighting, where defensive and offensive weapons of the Middle Ages, made and adapted specifically for this type of competition are used. HMB are held on the lists of standardized shapes and sizes and, depending on the format of the battle, different types of authentic weapons are used. The concept of HMB combines all forms of full-contact combat with the use of objects of historical reenactment of the Middle Ages, namely historical fencing, buhurts, melee, duels, small-group battles, mass field battles, professional fights, etc.
