Serbian knight's fighting is a martial art, based on the skills of the medieval knights, the fighting skills of the Serbian insurgents, aswell as general Serbian martial tradition. SVIBOR is an association of citizens for preserving those skills and heritage.
Svibor includes training of skills such as horseback riding, swimming, climbing, unarmed combat aswell as combat with various types of medieval weapons.
One of the traditional events is a tournament, that is organized every year in Belgrade, on the Belgrade Fortress, in the Orthodox feast of Pentecost (50 days after Easter), also known as old slavic Rusal week.
