Armour, weapons, men and women from all over the world fight in Prague in the Battle of Nations.
The aim to recreate the drama of medieval combat.
The battles are monitored, no stabbing, no breaking of limbs.
A whack across the helmet is desirable.
All good harmless fun according to Czech knight Tomas Gajdosik:
“It is not as dangerous as it looks. I think it is as dangerous as any other contact sport. The injuries can be compared to football or ice hockey.”
Ironically this years tournament was dominated by Russia and Ukraine, with Russia winning the world championship.
