Some of you may remember, several years ago, my unbridled enthusiasm for the prospect of jousting shows on television.
Sadly, they came and went and never really caught on as they should have, but now the History Channel is once more tapping into my love of quirky sports shows and all things Dungeons & Dragons-related with Knight Fight.
Real armour, real weapons, real fights and real people. Enter the world of Medieval Martial Arts, aka the Knight Fight Club, in this brand new exclusive series: Knight Fight.Knight Fight kicks off on the UK's History Channel on February 19.
Presented by a team of experts, including WWE superstar and podcaster Christian Cage, each episode follows six competitors as they battle with axes, swords, shields and spears while wearing over 36kgs of armour until only one knight stands.
Normal people with normal lives forget their day jobs and become knights of battle in the full-contact Armoured Combat League (ACL).
These knights are set to wage war as each episode features six new fighters who customise era-specific armour, garb and weaponry and engage in numerous battle rounds to see who has the skill, strength and aggression to win the Knight Fight.
