My name is Bryan Cannata and I am a member of the 2013 United States team that will be representing our Country in the most intense form of Medieval Sport Combat on the face of the planet.
Team USA and I will be traveling to France in three months to compete in the Battle of Nations
, an international, full contact with steel weapons, no holds barred, western martial arts competition and festival. Last year was the first year America sent a team. Last year they laughed at the Americans. They thought we would be a push over. Last year Team USA came in fourth. This year we want to win it all.
Unfortunately being a Knight in armor is not cheep, no matter what century you live in. The weapons, armor, travel costs, and lodging add up quickly. The average competitor here in the U.S. spends close to $8,000.0 of personal funds just to represent America. This is a young sport in the United States and corporate sponsorships are slow.
In effort to help defer some of the costs I am following the centuries old practice of seeking patrons to help me on my quest. Any thing you can contribute will be greatly appreciated. This year there will be twenty six countries participating. With your help ,hard work and a bit of luck your Team USA can fight to the top and bring home victory.
We all do this out of love for the sport and love for our country.
Please help us on our Quest
