  1. Seems to be so much fun. I do realise this a sport etc but what i dont like is that they take chanses and lounch themselfes just to get a point.. and thats it. Dont think thats how they fought back in the day.

    Try stop ex boxing when u score a point, u be knocked out one sec flat.

  2. There's no reason why Hollywood fencing shouldn't look like this. Actually seeing people trying to hit each other rather than seeing them arbitrarily hitting each others swords is way more exciting.

  3. It’s really interesting how you can tell the novices apart from the intermediate-advanced duellists by how far their left/off hand has crept forward.

  4. Cool sparring matches. I'm new to Bolognese sword and buckler and have been taught with a smaller buckler to hold it out pointing at the opponents swordhand's shoulder. That way if he mounts an attack, a large swath of target is taken away… other than that the buckler protects the sword hand when striking. So do you see any used in holding a small buckler close to the body?

  5. I have a request of you .
    Could you please make video about "The witcher 3" game sword fight style ?
    And give your personal opinion?also if it works in a real combat?

  6. I've always imagined fighting /dueling with rapiers as looking more like a boxing match, where both fighters jab and feint and move while looking for an opening. And when they see one, they attack, then retreat if not successful.

  7. In virtually all these bouts–one of the contestants scores within seconds–real fight would then be over. Given the skill levels displayed I cannot believe a real fight went on for any length of time.

  8. Seeing this, it is clear that tournaments give not a correct image of a real duel. Would you really risk it, with such rapid movements and going forward and backward with real sharp pointy swords? I think I would not.

  9. There's only one good guard position. I'm surprised to see so many fencers using upside down and baseball bat type guards.
