Medieval battle is a full-fledged battle with the use of steel non-sharpened weapons, defense and offensive weapons, typical of the Middle Ages.
A fighter participant of the tournaments is dressed in a full armor, which is like a weapon made according to historical patterns.
Unlike the demonstrative battles that are often held at festivals of historical reconstruction, medieval battles come in full contact, and referees have special training and experience in the competition.
