The USA Knights are heading to the International Medieval Combat World Championships in Scone, Scotland, and we want to tell their story!

Full-contact medieval armored combat is the toughest and fastest-growing sport in the world today, and th USA team is one of the top challengers for the title this year! Zorikh Lequidre and Brad Blackmon are combining their talents and experience to create a video documentary f the team's journey to glory that will bring all the excitement and intensity home! It will be the next best thing to being there!

Zorikh Lequidre (AKA "Captain Zorikh" produced fought with the team in its first three years and produced the first two documentaries of the team at the world championships. Brad Blackmon is fightin on the team this year and beings his award-winning, professional video production experience with him. Together these two fighters and filmmakers will give a real insider's perspective on what it is like to be with the team on this journey. This video will give unprecedented depth to the subject giving the public a new appreciation for this sport that we love!

The video will be available from the producers, through Amazon.co, and other public sales venues, and intends to be listed on IMDB.

The his fundraiser will help cover the travel and production costs  for this video. We are looking to bring two videographers, international photojournalist Tadej Znidarcic (who was the lead camera person for "American Knights 2015) and Vitor Fraga (Who recently produced a mini-doc of the NYC team of the Armored Combat League) to to most of the camerawork, while Brad, Zorikh, and other members of the team will be shooting whatever they can.

Brad and Zorikh will edit the footage, with the final product targeting a release date by the end of the year.

The funds raised will be used for airfare, hotel costs, food, batteries, memory chips, and the other expenses of production, video editing time, dplication and distribution of the final product, and the cost of the "perks" that are being offered to the supporters of this project.

And we will have lots of valuable "perks" for those who help us reach our financial goals. These will include copies of the video, T shirts and hoodies, postcards from Scotland and much, much more! Keep an eye on the funding options on the right of the page, ans more perks will be added soon!

If you have a business that targets people who love medieval history, medieval  combat, medieval fantasy adventure, and hard core fight sports, corporate sponsorship is also available!

So Watch This Space for more details, including videos about the team as it prepares, and find out how much this sport means to the participants, and this project means to us who are making this video.

I have just posted my first new video in connection with this project. Derrick Flitcroft is a rookie to the USA Knights team and is making his first trip to the world championships after impressing people with his strength and aggression on the field. We caught up with him after a match between the NY Sentinels and the Huntington Hellequin in NYC recently...

Here is the 2015 10-man team in action from "American Knights 2015." This team was largely made up of new members of the team. I wonder what this year's rookies are like, and how they will do. Unlike my teammates and I when we started in 2012, today's fighters have the experience of those who went before them from which to learn!
