Full Metal Jousting - The worlds original Extreme Sport

New HISTORY® series, premiering Sunday, February 12 at 10 p.m., revives the world’s original extreme sport

Sixteen of the toughest warriors in the country will face off in a bone-crushing competition in FULL METAL JOUSTING, a new one-hour series premiering Sunday, February 12 at 10 p.m. on HISTORY. Hosted by renowned jouster Shane Adams, the 10-part series features full-contact jousts with competitors going head-to-head on horseback in brutal tests of strength, endurance and courage. High-speed cameras capture every punishing blow as jousters charge and collide at 30 miles per hour. The last man standing takes home a $100,000 cash prize.

The combat in FULL METAL JOUSTING is no choreographed renaissance faire. It’s 100% authentic, with a twist: traditional armor is replaced with modern suits of steel weighing 80 pounds, and 11-foot-long, solid fir lances are used as weapons.

Living and training together, the 16 FULL METAL JOUSTING contestants prepare for battle. Their backgrounds vary from an ex-Marine stunt man and a professional polo player to a bull rider. But all have a full contact background with nerves of steel to bring back history’s oldest sport in its rookie season.

Adams is the former president of the World Championship Jousting Association. He holds 17 international jousting titles and co-founded numerous competitive spectacles around North America.
FULL METAL JOUSTING is produced for HISTORY by Pilgrim Studios. Craig Piligian, Ralph Wikke and Mitch Rosa are Executive Producers for Pilgrim Studios. Mike Stiller is Executive Producer for HISTORY.
