How to start
To enter to the buhurt sport you should have 3 essential things.
1. Armor and weapon
Full contact medieval fighting requires a full set of equipment that covers the whole body and head. There are tons of options for armor and weapons. Choosing equipment is one of the most important steps. Your safety and awesomeness of experience depends on the quality of equipment, so we recommend not to rush and explore this magical world before you make the final decision.
All equipment we craft is made for full contact medieval fighting and buhurt sport. You can always ask us for any information or advice, and we will help you to decide and choose your way
2. Regular training
Buhurt is not just a sport. It's a lifestyle. Fighting in full armor requires good physical condition and endurance. You need to train all the time. The more you train, the more fun you will have fighting on the list. Everything works. Lifting weights, cross-fit, MMA, boxing, any kind of full contact martial arts. Medieval fighting requires weapons to fight. Each weapon is a new universe to explore: swords, axes, maces, spears, polearms, poleaxes, halberds, falchions, fencing swords, long swords, bucklers, punch shields... and each of them has many types, could have different length and weight. You also need to have good grappling skills. Field grappling, grappling on the fence, grappling 2vs1, and surviving against many enemies. You need to learn teamwork, tactics, and strategy.
Try to find a buhurt team near you and make friends. Go and train together. If there is no team around you, go to a martial arts gym and make friends there. Show them buhurt and create your own team. Train hard and train more. You're gonna love it.
