The Second Annual HISTORIC
MEDIEVAL MARTIAL ARTS
(HMMA) TOURNAMENT
will feature 30 Bouts representing 10 schools, organizations, and fight clubs hailing combatants from California, Arizona, Utah, Maryland, with affiliates and supporters from across the United States and Europe.
This year’s light armor class will again showcase fighters in padded gambesons, gauntlets, and fencing masks dueling with
wasters, and demonstrating their skills from the Talhoffer, Fiore, and I-33 manuscripts. With draw cuts, thrusts, and grappling throws the change of fighting styles always prove for an active battle.
The crowd favorite has always been the heavy armored fighters and many of the heavy armored fighters will be wearing over 70 pounds of steel in order to withstand crushing blows from swords, shields, maces, axes, and hammers landed to their head, shoulders, torso, arms, and legs. Each legally landed strike scores a point and the Marshals and Judges will count the total points of each timed bout, with exception of a TKO, to declare a winner by points. With prizes and coin purses totaling more than $1000, the level of competition is sure to be fierce!!!
