...is apparently a thing now.

 

 

Edged weapons only and no maces or anything too nasty, but it still looks fairly brutal.

 

We need to start a crowd funding campaign to get those guys to fight these guys...

Yeah I must admit I would love to have a go at this, but it must cost an arm and a leg for the armory to make it happen.

 

 

There was a good BBC documentary about it 7 years ago that was pretty interesting. I seem to recall an English team had coaching from an Eastern European, and one of the most feared teams was the Israelis. :)

 

 

Somehow you just know the UN would work better like this.....

From a friends who participated:

1. It is brutal

2. You need real armor, soft boilerplate will not work and might kill you.
