An Event Like No Other

The 2013 Battle of the Nations will see the official entrance of the Australian team. While having a maximum of 50 places, we will only be sending a small team to participate. So if you, or anyone you know wants to have the opportunity to come and fight for your nation on the world stage then contact us at admin@battleofthenations.com.au and start your journey towards the Battle of the Nations!

The 3 main combat scenarios for Battle of the Nations are below:

1 vs 1 - Showcases the individual skills of a single fighter in 3 rounds of combat. The first round is 1.5 minutes long and requires each fighter to strike their opponent as many times as possible with a longsword. The second round is 2 rounds of ‘first to 3 strikes’ with single handed sword and buckler (small round, hand shield). The last round is 1.5 minutes long and requires each fighter to strike their opponent as many times as possible with a  single sword and heater shield (medium sized shield).

Group - 5 vs 5, 21 vs 21 and 50 vs 50 – Team based combat where the main objective is to 'take down' the opposing team over 3 rounds. This can be achieved with strikes (Weapon and Body), throws, take downs, trips and more. Once the last member of one team hits the ground the round is over.

Profights – Profights are run like most other combat sports. Over 3 x 3 minute rounds fighters must land as many strikes on their opponent as possible. This combat has the least amount of rules yet requires the most fitness.

National events are in the process of being set up. Please check back here for more information or contact us at admin@battleofthenations.com.au.
