In Full Metal Jousting, a maverick group of Americans compete for top honors in the most dangerous sport in history. This is not a Renaissance Fair. This is Ultimate Fighter for Jousting. In the 1980s, a group of Americans began jousting just like they did 500 years ago. It's full contact. Two men and two horses charge at each other and collide at 30 miles an hour. They will bring this competition into the 21st century. Gone is the goofy armor, replaced by high tech iron-man like suits. Competitors are knocked off the horses, often breaking bones. In fact, it's so dangerous jousters in other parts of the world won't attempt Ultimate Jousting. In this series, a group of amateurs are trained by veteran jousters. It's a competition like Ultimate Fighter. Each week's episode features full contact preparations, culminating in a series of jousts. In the words of one veteran jouster - we don't do this for money, its about seeing who is the best man on any given day.
