The International Medieval Combat Federation includes 40 countries and around 1,000 members.
Every year they have the Annual Medieval Combat World Championship to determine who the best team is. The tournament is held in a different city around the world each year.
This is a full-contact sport culminating in the Melee Battle, where countries fight each other with up to 16 fighters on each side.
Knights wear armor, ride on horseback, wield maces and shields, and battle each other with medieval weapons.
Everything (armor, weapons, materials, etc) must be historically accurate.
IMCF USA’s team is called the Armored Combat USA Knights.
