A Knight's Tale: Full Contact Medieval World Championships In Europe
Project 2015-04-01 23:53:01 +1300
Hi I'm James, and recently I was invited to compete at the IMCF (International Medieval Combat Federation) world championship held in Malbork Castle in Poland, and at Battle of the Nations world championship in the city of Prague only a week after.
I am part of both NZ teams representing at these events. And am greatly honoured to be part of these teams, and to represent New Zealand in one of the toughest combat sports out there. I believe with this international experience I can further grow the sport on our shores.
Joining with 40 days notice, it's not something I had prepared for but the opportunity is amazing! Many people have helped me out with time, armour and a few funds.
I am looking at $2000 dollars to offset the costs of the travel, accomodation, medical and everything else that goes into competing at this level internationally. A large part will be maintaining armour and weapons over there.

So I fought and I came back... had a blast. Learned a heap and had some good ruckus, met many friends and had a massive amount of fun.
Sadly the pledgeme did not come to fund, but thanks to all the folks that supported me here and off this page. I will still be producing some tee shirts and doing more fundraising but from my facebook and within the community.
Cheers again and keep an eye out again next year!

1 day and I fly! Its come up so crazy fast!
Will have to finish the digital side of the tee's when i get back as I've just been too stretched thin with all the running around, fundraising, working and training. Was training till 12.30 am last night, final time in armour before i go!
Dont worry theres a couple weeks on the pledgeme once i get back and do a final push. Trying to be realistic, and well getting ready for 2 world championships, 25 hours away by plane, on 40 days notice is no small feat!
Thanks so much for your support! Next post may just be from Poland!
10% funding on first day!
