Thought you guys might appreciate this for fun. These events take place in Europe (HMB-Historical Medieval Battles). This is not like the typical American fantasy role-playing SCA crowd. These guys are using steel and rules pretty close to what the tournaments in that period might have looked like (knees, elbows, takedowns, headbutts). Check out the blind side knock down at 0:22 and dig the sparks coming off the steel blows at the end. (Oh and excuse the stupid title).

No lightning bolt(s)? Es boolshiet!




But seriously with the blindside and blade steel sparks, that seems like a pretty fun way to spend an afternoon.

Interesting how they use the shield hand a lot. Similar to "alive" hand movements. Do you have longer clips Seef?

Well...this one is great too. Its a full scale battle but they send out champions first to fight one-on-one.

Check out some BJJ at about the 1:00 mark.

It amazes me that with steel weapons and spears these guys are wearing open faced helms!

Crazy! Did those guys train BJJ too? I'm sure many of them got injured pretty bad.
