I've been watching these videos, and these are not guys having a laugh. Among the teams, these battles are taken seriously, and these are full contact
matches (bruises, broken bones, and yes, even some blood).There is also honor and sportsmanship between the teams.
The combatants spend months and years training, and to manage to not fall down while having a buckler slammed into your face mask, or a halberd
slammed onto your shoulder while wearing 40 to 80 lbs of armor, takes discipline and great physical strength and conditioning.
The long sword duels are extremely entertaining to watch as well, since in many of them, the swordplay is fast and furious as the combatants vie for
I hope the sport really takes off, and retains its honesty and spirit.
