Nizhnik, Israel: “We’re looking forward to meeting the Saracens. We are lacking harmony without them”

    Gennady Nizhnik, Israel, "Kingdom of Jerusalem" club   Concerning the movement in Israel and his club...     ... Concerning the movement in Israel  The country has about seven clubs of different levels of activity. Almost all of them are descendants of an old "role-playing protoclub", but every club has been developing in its own way. Every club deals with a certain region, era; and historical fencing is…

Shestakov, Estonia: “Everybody wants to join the main five-member team, and we will hold a qualifying event for that”

Shestakov, Estonia: “Everybody wants to join the main five-member team, and we will hold a qualifying event for that”

    Our impressions concerning "Battle of the Nations"-2014 are great. We would like to fight with all those opponents, who we have already met, again. And there are many others who we would like to meet. As for Russia, we want to go there, but we have only been invited to a training so far. We aren’t ready to fight with the Russians on equal terms.   We will…

Combat alliances

    What are they and who / what do they include?   - Frequently Asked Questions - - Information for novices -     You can see at many HMB tournaments that teams participating in "5 vs 5" and "21 vs 21" categories are rarely formed of representatives of one club.

Tapsell, New Zealand: “It was amazing to fight against Ukraine in buhurt!”

Tapsell, New Zealand: “It was amazing to fight against Ukraine in buhurt!”

    All the teams showed their best, but the most important moment for me was the fight of our team against Ukraine. The fact is that since I’ve started practising HMB sport, I’ve been a fan of the National Team of Ukraine. It was amazing to fight against Ukraine in buhurt! I managed to bring down several Ukrainian fighters and it was worth a journey across the world!  …

McNaughton, Scotland: “We’ve founded regional clubs across the country to select the best fighters for the National Team”

McNaughton, Scotland: “We’ve founded regional clubs across the country to select the best fighters for the National Team”

    Participation in the World Championship in HMB "Battle of the Nations"-2014 gave us a lot of invaluable experience which our team started to implement immediately after returning from Croatia. We continued to train and taught novices, shared our experiences with them.   At the beginning of our preparation for "Battle of the Nations"-2014 we had only one set of armor, which made it impossible to train in a normal way. To somehow compensate the lack of equipment, we devoted a lot of time to physical training, martial arts and fencing.…

Obradovic, Serbia: “Compared to the previous year, our standards of authenticity increased significantly!”

    HMB sport became more popular in Serbia compared to the previous year. We have new clubs and a large support group for the teams.

We also hope to participate in "Battle of the…

McNaughton, Scotland. Concerning the course made…

    Pioneer of the Scottish HMB movement, Dave McNaughton, concerning his way of stirring up the movement in his country.   First we had to learn whether the people of Scotland really wanted to join the National Team of the country. We began to conduct surveys in the social network Facebook. As a result, we held a meeting for all those who were interested in HMB. There we had a public vote. We wanted to find out whether Scotland needed its own national team for historical medieval battle. The event took place on the 8 of September 2013 in the Stirling Castle.   Having gathered…

Nayderov, Russia: “My advice is the following – confront stronger opponents on the lists more often”

Nayderov, Russia: “My advice is the following – confront stronger opponents on the lists more often”

  I liked "Battle of the Nations"-2014 held in Croatia. But we lacked teams that failed to attend the event in Trogir as they had gone to another tournament. I hope that in the future, this problem will disappear (and we will remember it as an unfortunate misunderstanding), and we will participate in the World Championship in HMB "Battle of the Nations" all together again.   And I would advise…

Sergheev, Moldova: “In the end, I joined the buhurt “Russia against all.” It was an exciting experience :D”

    I’ve got a lot of impressions concerning "Battle of the Nations"-2014 :) The venue was stunningly beautiful. Picturesque old medieval town, the town hall, cathedral, statues, emblems on the walls ... and even the game, Nine Men's Morris, carved on a stone near the cathedral…   A huge number of participants, busy medieval camp with rows of stalls, musicians, and, of course, the best fighters and teams from…
