The Armored Combat League is the most extreme, full force, full speed, full contact, sport on the planet.
They do not try to recreate medieval fechtbuchs, (fight books), or war. They are a brand new sport, resurrected from the ashes of Medieval Tournament fighting, when honor, skill, courage and training were highly prized among the virtues.
Their athletes wear 60-80 lbs of armor. They face opponents with deadly weapons made of steel. They have one goal… incapacitate their opponent with punches, kicks, throws, axes and swords until someone is on the ground.
