Historic Medieval Battle

Our company has been greatly inspired by the Historical Medieval Battle International Association (HMBIA) a non-profit organization formed in 2009 in Liechtenstein; whose aims are: “to make the historical medieval battle a popular cultural and sport movement all over the world, to engage people of all ages to HMB, to promote healthy way of life through HMB, to show through sport battles of HMB the difficulty and danger of real wars and teach people to appreciate friendship and peace, to introduce HMB as mass leisure activity in which a modern person can challenge himself/herself in totally unusual context of full-contact fight in medieval armour, and to encourage public interest towards the medieval history and care about the cultural heritage.”
