Jousting was popular enough to last for more than 400 years in Europe, but these days there are only some 200 competitive jousters around the world, about 30 of whom are in North America. (A couple hundred more perform at Renaissance fairs and festivals but do not compete.) The basic concept is unchanged from medieval times: two armor-clad opponents charge at each other on horses while wielding 11-foot-long wooden lances. The goal is to break your lance on your opponent’s shield or on a metal plate bolted to his chest called a grand guard, but unhorsings are an added thrill and — in the North American style of competition
— the surest way to rack up points.

 The gates of the Gulf Coast International Jousting Championships opened at 6 p.m. one Friday in January at a 4,500-seat arena 13 miles outside Pensacola, Fla. Some of the spectators were dressed in leather doublets and velvet gowns; some wore jeans and cowboy hats or American-flag-patterned do-rags. Most seemed to have come out of idle curiosity rather than any previous knowledge of the sport. “From what I hear, the combat’s going to be smackin’,” a man named Paul Johnson told me, punching his knuckles together. He estimated he had seen the movie “A Knight’s Tale” a couple dozen times, and he hoped this event would measure up.

WINER SAN

The championship event was created by two men, both professional jousters, who are on a mission to transform jousting from Renaissance-fair entertainment to arena sport. One is Shane Adams, the knight who unhorsed Tolle. The other is Charlie Andrews, a Hummer-driving former bull rider who spent six years as a Navy Seal.

History of Jousting

& Terminology

Jousting in the Middle Ages

A joust is defined as a fight between mounted knights wearing armor and using lances. Jousting was a favorite form of entertainment during the Middle Ages. Jousting contests took place at Medieval tournaments which provided a venue for Knights to practise various forma of combat to the delight, and for the amusement, of crowds of onlookers. The tournaments kept the knight in excellent condition for the role he would need to play during medieval warfare - skill with weapons and supreme strength and fitness were necessary to knights of the Middle Ages. Tournaments were exciting and colorful pageants which displayed different forms of combat. Jousting was one of the events shown at a tournament. Jousting was an individual event whereas the Melee was a team event where teams of knights fought on fought or on horseback.

Different types of Jousting in the Middle Ages

There were two types of jousting events during the Middle Age
s the 'Joust a plaisance' and the 'Pas d'armes'

Joust a plaisance
- A series of elimination jousting contests which were held over over several days. An overall jousting winner would be determined

Pas d'armes or passage of arms Jousting event -
A Knight would send out a proclamation that he would take on all jousting challengers at a specific time and place.

Origins of Jousting

The origins of jousting can be traced to any war time in early history was dependent upon equestrian skills - for instance, the horsemanship of the Mongols was legendary. The Gladiatorial contests fought in the arena's  built across Europe were banned in 404AD. But the battles fought in the arenas were remembered and changed into games to enable soldiers to practise skills which did not culminate in the death or injury of participants. Old games were revived where the battles of antiquity were replayed in those such as the 'Game of Troy'. The tournaments of the Middle Ages replaced the gladiatorial games of the Roman arena but with far less fatalities and bloodshed and far more finesse. The Code of Chivalry was an important element of the tournament and the jousting event. It is interesting to note that the word 'joust' is derived from the Roman 'juxtare', which means "to meet together.". Click the link at the top of the page to discover the History of Jousting.

Jousting Tournaments

Jousting were major events in the tournaments or tourneys of the Middle Ages. Medieval jousting tournaments were the training grounds for Knights of the Middle Ages but they were also great entertainment for the local people. Jousting tournaments were usually held on a field in close proximity to a castle called the 'Lists'. "To be in the lists" meant to be competing in the tournament. People would view the jousting and other events from the battlements of the castle or sit alongside the Jousting tournament field. A grandstand, called a Berfrois, was built a full story above the level of the lists. This grandstand housed the ladies and other noble spectators. Pavilions were erected around the area of the jousting tournaments. Pavilions were the name given to the bright, round medieval tents of alternating colors which housed the combatants and surgeons of a jousting tournament. Jousting tournaments teemed with spectators and combatants including royalty, nobles, knights, ladies and commoners.

Jousting Tournaments - The Preparations

Jousting tournaments were great events. They had to be formally planned
 and preparations were numerous.

Challenges from on noble to another to 'Cry the Tournament'

The 'bans' crying for a tournament consisted of an announcement sent via heralds to notify nobles that a jousting tournament was to be held 'at a specific time and place

The rules of a pas d'armes was published in advance of the jousting tournament

    Announcements of the jousting tournaments were made from the castles and town criers made the announcements in the towns and from the towns the word spread to the villages

    The news of a jousting tournament was always greeted with great excitement and the banners of the knights were hung from the windows where they lodged or
by their supporters

Jousting Rules

Jousting Rules were circulated prior a jousting tournament or pas d’armes.
The jousting Rules and terms included the following:

   When and where the tournament would be held

  Who was sponsoring the tournament

   The specific styles of combat which were expected to be fought

  The weapons allowed

    Vespers Tourney: A tournament held on the eve of a larger event, where the younger knights bachelor and squires had an opportunity to demonstrate their prowess before the experienced knights and assembled gallery

    Opening day processions where judges and contestants rode in formal procession. The ceremony used to start a tournament or pas d’armes was called the Invocation

    Tree of Shields: The place where several colored shields were hung for a pas d’armes. Challenging knights could choose the combat they required by hitting the shield

    The Second day ceremony included the display of the helms of knights who had fought in tournaments

 The ladies inspected the helms and denounced acts of un-chivalrous behavior

    The third day ceremony was when the 'Chevalier d'honneur' was chosen who performed the rule of an umpire

    On the last day of the tournament the ceremony for awarding the tournament
 prizes was conducted

    The tourney being ended, the combatants met in the centre of the lists, and embraced each other in the true companionship of chivalry

    Every day of the Jousting Tournament ended with feasting, music and dancing

Jousting Knights

The Jousting Knights represented their liege lord or were entering the tournament in order to win the purse, or prize money. In early tournaments the losing knight would forfeit his armor and his horse which would be claimed by the victor. Fame and Glory were also good reasons for the jousting knights to enter a tournament.

 WHAT IS JOUSTING?

             Jousting is best described as an extreme sport and a cross between the excitement of equestrian sports with the thrill and danger of extreme sports.  The combination of horse and rider - of concentration and power - provides emotion and excitement that no other sport offers.  Woman is equal to man in the execution.  The horse has the power; the rider the control.  There is no sport equal to this unity between horse and rider.  Together, this team competes as one.

            The equestrian sport of jousting is steeped with history and tradition, it spans history, speaks all languages and transcends age and gender with a courageous spirit.  It is unique in its beauty and grace.  It is family oriented.  It instills dedication, courage, confidence and commitment. This remarkable sport has gathered rapid momentum over the past few years and has become an immensely popular and highly visible spectator sport.  Its international peers consider the United States as one of the world’s greatest up and coming super powers.

The Ancient and noble sport of jousting is best described as a cross between the excitement of Thoroughbred racing and the sheer daring of the downhill slalom. The combination of horse and rider - of concentration and power - provides emotion and excitement that no other sport offers.  Woman is equal to man in the execution.  The horse has the power; the rider the control.  There is no sport equal to this unity between horse and rider. 

   The International Jousting Association (IJA-USA) is the United States based part of a world wide governing body for the sport of jousting. Its aims are the same as the Worldwide IJA:

 Promote the sport of jousting throughout the world.

Promote IJA sanctioned tournaments throughout the world.

Promote an international standard of certification in jousting and related skills.

 Promote a high standard of historical accuracy.

 Promote a high level of sportsmanship.

 Promote a high standard of horse welfare.

Promote a high standard of safety.

The IJA was originally formed in England in 1987 by Alan Beattie and some other English Jousters. But it was not until 1996 that the organization started to become properly established after a meeting in New Zealand between English, Australian and New Zealand jousting representatives. In 1999 the first IJA tournament was held in New Zealand between Australian and New Zealand jousters. From this modest start the IJA has grown to the point where IJA tournaments are now held throughout the year around the world, attracting riders from its various member groups in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom
 and the United States.
