YOU HAVE ASKED FOR IT YOU GOT IT THIS YEAR! A JOUST!
CHARLIE ANDREWS , reigning World Champion of full contact and heavy armor jousting, is a powerful man with a powerful story
As Charlie says, "It all began, when one day I bought a suit of armor, got on my horse, picked up a big stick and started knocking fools off!"
Two men, in 130lbs of armor, on two war horses, traveling at 20mph and all colliding at the point of a 11ft lance. This is full contact jousting to which Charlie has dedicated his whole life, sacrificing everything along the way to become a World Jousting Champion. This is the REAL thing, his life's passion.
As a jousting World Champion, Charlie knows what it takes to win in jousting.
"You can be the biggest, badest guy on earth but if you can't put that lance on point and hit the other guy on the target, you need to quit. The violence of a collision when the lance hits is insane".
"Jousting is not just a competition, or just a sport but in the old days it was used in medieval warfare.
Charlie's goal is to get jousting into stadiums across the continent and Put the sport back on the map and making it a professional extreme sport.
