oberyn did his own stunts in that scene! he studied some form of martial arts, as per his reddit AMA
First, thank you VERY very much. That's always amazing for me to hear. And the production of Game of Thrones actually put me in some pre-training
before I went to Europe to start shooting. I was put intro some classes with a master of Wushu, an acrobatic martial art, and they put me with a
master, his name is Master Hu, and he has a studio in Los Angeles where he sort of basically showed me the basics and taught me how to fight with a
spear and twist my body around and move in ways I never thought possible. And this was a guy who actually did Shaolin movies with Jet Li very early in
Jet Li's career, and fought alongside him as his sidekick, so he was the real deal.
Then once I got to Europe and started shooting, there were really intensive fight rehearsals with me and the stunt team that was headed by C.C. Smiff,
and other actors, and we did a lot of fight choreography and rehearsals. The Oberyn style of fighting is inspired by Wushu.
^ awesome stuff. he's my new fav actor and i cant wait to see him get all kinds of movie/show deals
