Combat Display Team

The Order of the Blade Combat team provides a range of Historical Combat Displays for events and venues nationwide.

Our Combat Display Team was created to provide demonstrations and displays that are exciting, realistic and authentic.

Our Displays contain Historical Knowledge wrapped up in exciting delivery that is immersive and engaging for all ages.

The secret of our innovation is that everything is authentic, when we fight, we get hit...when we shoot at each other, we get hit!

The 'Men-at-Arms' Tourney

Dates In 2020

26-31st May - Royal Armouries Leeds: Field of Cloth of Gold Tournament

5th July - Verulam School: Verulam Medieval Festival

Our 'Men at Arms' Tourney has come about to combine 2 areas of Visitor Entertainment: The visual impact of live re-enactment, and the visceral nature of actual hand-to-hand martial arts.

Our Tournament features actual trained fighters who Actually fight each other.....properly!

There is no choreography and the outcomes are unknown

The fights are conducted to our Order of the Blade 'Challenge' Rules....

This means that only potentially killing blows are scored!

Real life sword fights are boring to watch for most of us...they are over very quickly and you can't follow the speed.....

so our fighters practice and train to 'show' their skills whilst also trying to hurt their opponents!

Our Combat Display Team is available for Events all over the UK
