Knights Joust on Horseback - Bohemian National Hall

Knights Joust on Horseback

Bohemian National Hall
July 23, 2022

Historically speaking, jousting began as a tool for training medieval armored cavalry. It evolved into a full-blown sport by the late middle ages. With the many castles in Bohemia, the kings needed knights to protect their land. Much like training in martial arts, the repeated exposure to oncoming danger helps to mold a rider (and the horse) into a formidable opponent on the battlefield.

Members of Combatant's Keep came to the Bohemian National Hall, an historic building located in the Broadway-Slavic Village neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio. 2022 is the 125th anniversary of the historic Bohemian National Hall in Cleveland Ohio. On Saturday July 23, 2022 they performed at the celebration. This video features knight Tom Nader getting dressed in armor and explaining the whole process.
