Max Von Halstern has a dream: to send Team USA to take part in Battle of the Nations, "the full-contact, extremely authentic medieval martial arts tournament held in the Ukraine." A discussion is taking place on Facebook.
"There is effort afoot to create a meaningfully competitive Team USA to show the Eastern Europeans our Chivalric worth on this side of the pond," writes Von Halstern. "The team is organizing and communicating through our Facebook page. We invite all to join the page, and those who are willing to consider joining our quest for honor, glory, and renown in lands afar to join the team!"
National teams from the Ukraine, Russia, Poland, Italy, Germany, and France have competed in past years. Videos showcasing the event are available on YouTube.
