What is the IMCF?
The International Medieval Combat Federation (IMCF) is a democratic federation composed of national associations and legal organizations united in their dedication to the sport of medieval combat.
Medieval combat is a martial art sport intricately linked with medieval history. Through years of experience, the development of rules and regulations, stringent safety requirements for equipment, trained marshals, and skilled fighters, medieval combat has evolved into a recognized sport.
- Overview: The IMCF World Championship, our flagship annual event, follows a model similar to other sports’ championships. It is a platform for the world’s best fighters to compete in their respective categories for gold medals and the prestigious title of world champion.
- Beyond the Fights: IMCF events offer more than just battles. We provide a unique atmosphere, immersing participants and audiences in the sights, sounds, and sensations of medieval times. By selecting grand medieval castles as venues for our events, such as the IMCF World Championship, we create an unforgettable experience that captures the essence of medieval combat.
