Battle of Nations knight seeks backing

Sir Guy LeStrange is seeking backing to attend and participate in the Battle of Nations, "an international, full contact with steel weapons, no holds barred, western martial arts competition and festival." The 2013 event will take place in France.

In 2012, TeamUSA attended for the first time and placed fourth. The team plans to attend again this year, but donations are needed to sponsor the knights participating. Individual and team donations may be made online.

The Battle of the Nations website includes a video clip explaining the event. Sir Guy's page includes video and blog entries about training.
