The teams fought hard to gain the last points for the French ranking and for the Buhurt League standings. That made fights really impressive.
It was also held in a better place than last year with the bigger open space for fighters, for the public and for the medieval market.
John Walbrecq, French HMB Federation Vice-President, shared his impressions:
“We could see a lot of friendship and mutual help between the fighters, but the rest between the fights was too long”.
The first place won the “White company” team from Great Britain. The captain Pavel Kurchak is proud of his guys and pointed their significant development as HMB fighters!
“White Company“ are really dangerous – they are seriously committed to win Western Europe Conference!
Pavel Kurchak: “I’m truly excited of the format of the League becoming a driving force in development of the sport. The “White Company’s“ goal is to win Western Europe Conference in its first season”.
There were still a very few teams going out to fight abroad. For now, we have already know about the fighters’ plans to go for fighting to other countries this weekend. I think this initiative will give a new dimension to the sport, breaking the borders and bringing new momentum to our movement.
The Buhurt League brings an interest of fighters to foreign tournaments, in which some teams would not have been interested before”.
There were 3 women’s teams in the “3vs3″ category, and that’s why their results haven’t been counted for the Buhurt League statistic.
