with external player History:
In the days of old the knights on horse were the most lethal weapon of war. King Edward , The Gordon, The Bruce, The Durward and many other men of title, not only went on the Crusades together but also would compete with each other on the field in jousting matchs. Their Knights would also compete and wage on who would be victorious. see also.... Jousting
From these early beginnings we can only imagine how the skill and technique with the lance developed. We do know that from its military beginning, the concept of a mounted knight with lance and shield charging another evolved into a sport. Knights would gather together to practice, train and show off their skill with lance and horse. Jousting tournaments as entertainment and sport lasted from the early 1200's to the late 1400's. This was also the time of the chivalrous knight. For not only had a fighting style developed, but a code of ethics had developed between fighting men, something that had never before occured. This code of ethics, this positive concept called chivalry, would forever after be associated with the knight. As jousting in warfare became obsolete, the tournament began to change. From the sport of showing one's warrior prowess in skill-at-arms and jousting matches, the tournament became an elaborate show, with skill being secondary. By the late 1500's, the knight was encased in more than 120 lbs. of padding and armour and could scarcely move. His horse would sometimes falter or fall due to the extreme weight of armor on horse and rider. Combine this with a lance rest, that was bolted to the armour, and an unbreakable lance that was wedged to the lance rest, this was a situation that only a few would want to be in. Perhaps this is what ended jousting as entertainment on a large scale in the 1600's.

Australian jousters Rodney Walker (left) and Arnold Dobbe (right) exchange hits during the International Jousting Association's World Jousting Championships held over the weekend of January 11/12 2003. Both riders have broken their lances. Arnold went on to win the match after Rod received an injury. Rod's subsequent fight-back into the competition showed tremendous strength of character and he went on to win the IJA 2003 World Jousting Champion trophy and title. Approximately 10,000 people came to view the jousting and the other medieval sports displayed over the weekend. $5,000 was raised for the Hutt Valley Riding for the Disabled.

Maryland State Sport - Jousting
Jousting became the official sport of Maryland in 1962 (Chapter 134, Acts of 1962; Code State Government Article, sec. 13-308). Maryland was the first state to adopt an official sport. Jousting tournaments have been held in Maryland since early colonial times but became increasingly popular after the Civil War. Retaining the pageantry and customs of medieval tournaments, modern competitors are called "knights" or "maids", and many dress in colorful costumes. Men, women and children compete equally with skill and horsemanship determining the class. Horseback rider spearing the ring at jousting event.

Tournaments conducted in Maryland are "ring tournaments" which involve charging a horse at full-gallop through an 80-yard course toward suspended rings. Using a long, fine-tipped lance, the rider has 8 seconds to complete the course and "spear" the rings, scoring points accordingly. From three equally-spaced arches, rings are hung 6 feet 9 inches above the ground and range in diameter from one-quarter inch to nearly two inches depending upon the skill-level of the contestant. A family sport, jousting skills frequently are passed from one generation to the next. Today

A Knight cannot shine in war if he has not prepared for it in tournaments...
Full contact jousting
I n our beginning...
Bearing in mind that the sport with all of its experts and their experience had passed on some 400 years earlier, we began with only a few horses paired with a strong desire to engage in an ancient and time-honored tradition. It was time that the spectacle of full contact jousting was reborn.
Reviving jousting from scratch left a great deal to experimentation. This process was an evolutionary one, as none of the original participants were still around to ask for advice or assistance. All that remained were some texts left by those who scribed for the sport. Practical experience really needed to be gained, and there is only one way to get that...
Since our inception, and in the two decades of our existence, The New Riders of the Golden Age has been established as the premier jousting troupe in the country. Each year we perform from coast to coast for millions of people at Renaissance faires, state and county fairs, and special events. As performers in a show, we follow a script. The nature of the situation and its variables requires that we be open to improvisation. This allows us to keep the show fresh and alive for the audience as well as ourselves. The script sets the pace and gives a foundation to the excitement already existing from our energy.

Jousting is the most spectacular and potentially the most dangerous activity that we engage in. We have revived jousting as a modern equestrian competitive sport. The objective of our style of jousting is to shatter a lance on the opponent’s shield while he or she is trying to do the same to you. Points are awarded on how well you strike your opponent with maximum points being awarded for shattering your lance. This style of joust, known as the joust of peace became common from the 14th century onwards. We use real armour because a solid hit to an unprotected person with our style of lance will deliver more than enough force to kill. (Callum Forbes and Phil Pedersen jousting with our old-style heater shields and dowel lances in 2000) We also do not try to dismount the opposing rider because this will lead to real injuries - either to the horse or to the rider. However our hits are hard enough to cause unplanned dismounts and these do happen especially during competitions. But we award no additional points for this. (Robert Gulliver took a very hard hit at Abbey 2001. He fell hard and was unconscious for several minutes. Fortunately he suffered no serious injuries - helped by the period armour he was wearing. This is one of the reasons why we use authentic armour - because it worked!)

History of Jousting
One of the better known sports of the Renaissance period was the Tournament of the Horse which often included jousting. Most of the Faires have incorporated these action packed events into their entertainment. You may see dashing Knights clash at full gallop vying for royal favor. Spectators are urged by the Knight’s squires and medieval criers to support their champion. Although the origins are unsure, formalized jousting rose to the height of it’s popularity in Europe during the 1400’s. An off shoot of the war games ("Melees") staged by Knights on horseback and foot soldiers in open fields, jousting was conducted in colorfully decorated area designated by the nobles for spectator viewing. Initially these "jousts" served as a way for Knights to hone their fighting skills during times of peace, but quickly became a money making venture as the winning team could hold the losers for ranson accepting their horses and armor as payment. The numerous deaths spawned by these events led Popes and English Kings to ban jousting. Such bans did little to curtail the events which became a crowd pleasing attraction at market faires and

Jousting The origins of jousting are believed to be in classical Rome, but the "sport" rose to its greatest popularity in Europe by the 1400's. It all evolved from mock battles in which knights on horseback, assisted by foot soldiers, formed into teams and charged at each other in some wide meadow. The result was a "melee" (the word hasn't changed in a millennium) of shattered lances, clanging swords, flailing arms and legs - astride and afoot - that went on all day and into the night. The earliest recorded melee was in 1066 A.D., though mock combat had probably been around for centuries by then.
At first, the battles served more to hone fighting skills than to provide popular diversion. But in peaceful times, a knight needed a way to retain his skills. The Jousts were great money-makers for the victors; instead of claiming mere points, the winning team held the losers for ransom, often accepting their horses and armor as payment.
The deaths which resulted from such "sport" led Popes and English kings to ban jousting tournaments, though English subjects often persisted and were repeatedly excommunicated. The tournaments had become a featured attraction at any kind of market fair or other significant gathering. At the height of their popularity, jousts rivaled a state fair, Super Bowl, rock concert and Octoberfest all rolled into one.
By the middle 1200's, the joust emerged as the favored way to prove which of two (or more) knights was better. Most contests were a "Joust a Plaisir" (for pleasure) in which a winner was declared on the basis of points scored, though some were still conducted "a l'Outrance" (to the death). In the sporting version, the knights' swords were dulled and their lances tipped with "coronals" (little crowns) to prevent their penetrating a joint in the armor. Some authorities believe that the lances were deliberately weakened, a precaution still in effect today.

The two guys in the picture are rick raddatz (in the white helmet) and brian lewis (in the green helmet). it was taken on the Microsoft redmond campus about 1989 or so. brian invented this lunacy when he was at oregon state univ. in the mid 70s. the lance is an 8 foot wooden dowel...the sort of thing that's normally used to hang clothes on. it has a tennis ball on the end, with silicone caulk on it. we discovered that the lance tends to skitter wildly on the shield, which is both dangerous and makes it difficult to get a good hit. the caulk minimizes this: it makes the lance tip stick to the shield long enough to get a decent hit. the shield is about 30 inches in diameter, made of 3/4 inch plywood, and has a sturdy horizontal brace (also 3/4 ply) along where your forearm goes. there's a handle on this brace near one edge, and along the center is a leather sleeve for your left forearm. we've found that it's important to wear a glove that comes well up your right arm: brian got his skin pinched between the lance and the shield, requiring stitches. we also decided that we needed to establish some rules: the blow must come from the tip of the lance, and must be aimed at the center of the shield, favoring "low and inside" so that any deflections will go between the riders and not across them, and will not ride up, where it might hit the rider in the face or throat. the riders must attempt to pass to the right...that is, the way americans and mainland europeans drive, not like brittons, japanese, and australians. the shield must be held perpendicular to the blow.

Arizona Renaissance Festival
The Story of Jousting
    Jousting is given the 20th Century roar of approval at the Arizona Renaissance Festival for jousting now, as 400 years ago, is a merrie sport; a make-believe pageant of Sir Galahads and Sir Lancelots, of villainous Black Knights versus the virtuous Red Knights, mounted on thundering steeds, plumes waving, chain mail clanking and the festival crowd sarcastically screaming "Cheat to win!!"
    On winter weekends in the Arizona desert, Knights will again strap on the heavy suits of armor, settle astride snorting chargers, take up their lances and tilt with each other. These Knights (actually stunt riders and actors) are regular performers at more than a dozen "Renaissance Villages" around the country and will be battling at the Arizona Renaissance Festival on a tournament field within the Festival park in the foothills of the Superstition Mountains just east of Apache Junction, Arizona.
    Words like "pomp, pageantry and chivalry" serve to evoke the romantic aspects of jousting. When you get close to see the dull glow of chain mail next to bright armor, you begin to grasp how tightly woven the joust is with its history. An understanding of today's combats is impossible without the tracing of their ancient roots.
