The buhurt was a form of medieval tournament. The exact definition is disputed among experts. In the contemporary written sources even real military confrontations between rider associations are referred to as Buhurte. Maybe it was a kind of prelude to the actual (more dangerous) Turnei (tournament) where older and more anxious knights and servants could participate. Probably several, relatively harmless Knight Combats were understood under this term. It is still disputed whether in buhurts winners were determined. Closed organizations competed against each other with blunt weapons and called this events “buhurt”.
