Bryce understood he needed to get a set of armour to practice HMB sport, so he started to search and order the armour immediately. For that time, no one in Australia had any knowledge of the buhurt, so there were a plenty of trials and challenges on his way. In the lead up to the HMB World Championship “Battle of the Nations-2012″ in France, Lightbody and the team travelled to New Zealand a couple of times and ran a selection tourney in Melbourne.
“We went to France with 5 fighters to compete in the “5vs5″ category, where we were knocked out of the competition by the USA after making it through the group stage. We have learned a lot from those fights and gained new knowledge, thus we returned to Australia and began a massive recruiting push”.
Five years later in Australia there are teams in an almost every major city with new members joining every week. 2017 was an amazing year for Australian HMB as they won their first medal at HMB World Championship “Battle of the Nations-2017″ in Barcelona. The women “3vs3″ team, led by Skye Burnie, have taken the third place in a tense struggle.
As we know, Bryce has got 2 big dogs – Freya and Moose. These two giants love Bryce and his girlfriend Skye Burnie so much. It`s a happy and funny family that use to fight in armour time after time because Bryce is a trainer for Skye and his teammates from “Havoc” HMB-club.
