Nice sword play


Recommended Posts

Oh, yes indeed!  If you ever watch a good pair of HEMA (historical European martial arts) fighters at play, you can see how every part of the sword is a weapon.  There was a little of that in this film, but the points of the guard and the pommel itself are often used to poke your opponent in painful locations if you get inside his guard.  I was a very bad epee fencer in college, mostly because they wouldn't let me do that sort of thing. :lol: Only poking with the point, no slashing, no bludgeoning, one hand only, where's the fun in that?
