3 teams took part in the buhurts: the Russian Order, the NRB team of the Nuremberg HMB club and Old Friends – a team that trains at the HMB School of St. Petersburg.
The “Russian Order” captain of the HMB direction Stepan Pimenov said that the tournament in general turned out to be very solid, and the rivals were well acquainted:
“For 3 years now I’ve been fighting with familiar faces. In the first fight vs the team “Nuremberg” we won the round, in the second round I slipped and fell. After a hard fight, we could rest only 5 minutes before the fight with “Old Friends”. Therefore, they won almost without problems.”
One of the HMB High School coaches Yuri Samoilov, who supported the Old Friends that day, said that he was pleased with their fights and also noted that it was very useful for the HMB sport to hold as many tournaments of the First League as possible, giving athletes the opportunity to get necessary combat experience.
The next nomination, which took place at the HMB list, became an experiment – 2 vs 2 teams entered the list. In this category, victory is awarded solely for the number of blows inflicted by a weapon. The rules and regulations for this category will be discussed in our next publications. And most importantly, due to this format, we return to the need for a good fencing skill, which is an important aspect of historical medieval combat.
The guys from this team chose polearms for the fight, because they are both students of the famous polearm fighter and the legend of HMB sport Alexei Nayderov and specialize in this particular type of weapon. Alexandr also noted that in the future he intends to perform in the 2 vs 2 only with the polearm!
The results of the new 2 vs 2 nomination (“Polish Deuces”) are as follows:
1. Polish milking
2. Gorsky Group
3. The Kadyrov`s Squad
