Historical Medieval Battle New Zealand
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.
To participate in HMBNZ official events (and be covered by insurance), every individual (fighters, support people, and volunteers for the day) must be paid in full to HMBNZ. Membership for the 2023 - 2024 season to HMBNZ is $100 (NZ) per fighter, and $50 (NZ) per non-combatant.
