In 2001 Seán witnessed 'real life' jousting at Herstmonceux Medieval Festival, the amazing skill of the knights as they passed each other down the tilt rail, the glint of the steel armour, the thunder of the horses hooves as the lances bit home on each knights armour exploding into a showering spectacle. Only in his childhood memories watching movies such as The Black Shield of Falworth, Ivanhoe and Excalibur had Seán seen and loved the idea of jousting but never imagined that the sport would exist in his own lifetime.

The 15th Century group Destrier trained him to joust, and at the very place that he met them would go on to win his first Joust Tournament at Herstmonceux in 2005.
