Tattoo Cup Info

See fully armoured medieval knights smashing it out in full-contact combat in this trans-Tasman battle for supremacy. The Tattoo Cup is New Zealand's largest event in this fast growing sport, Historical Medieval Battle (HMB).

Watch individual knights display their prowess in 1 vs 1 duels with matched weapons, over 3 rounds scored by the number of solid hits they score on their opponent. Gasp and flinch as they crash toe-to-toe in the pro-fights, the MMA of Medieval Combat, with grapples, takedowns, and of course - weapons.

All of which will be topped of with the amazing spectacle of the 4 vs 4 group fights. Teams of knights fighting in a brutal sport where the only object is to get the opposition fighters to the ground, and the last team standing WINS!!! The winning team at the end of the tournament takes home Australasia's most prestigious HMB prize - The Tattoo Cup.
