Cool video of knight getting helmet struck off by opponent's lance during jousting tournament

I'm a big fan of jousting and love the movie "A Knight's Tale". Life imitates art in this video of a real jousting tournament where one of the knights has his helmet knocked clean off his head when he gets hit by his opponent's lance.

Have you ever been to a jousting tournament? Have you ever seen anything like this in your life?

I've seen live jousting at local Ren Faires and the mishaps that sometimes happen, but nothing like the helmet being knocked off like in the video you linked.

Only at Renn. But, it's a lot of fun when they don't try to be campy about it.

That was quite impressive, actually. The guy's face after was funny .

I love the sequence of expressions that cross his face from a brief flash of fear to relief that he's okay to "OMG that was cool!"
