What is HMB?
It is a full contact combat system for historical medieval battle. If you don't already have an idea then this tournament is not for you. However this promo video of the upcoming prestigious 2016 Battle of the Nations tournament will enlighten you on the style of combat expected by those entering an HMB tournament even here in Australia.
