This was filmed by one of our swedish friends during a training event last weekend. We had about 150 fighters, light snow, and all round good times!

"this [fight] looks curious, almost like a game. See, they are looking around them before they fall, to find a dry spot to fall on, or they are falling on their shields. Can you see blood on their cloths and weapons? No. This must be trickery."

that was cool! I loved all the different angles, especially the shots when the camera was on the weapons Big Grin This has inspired me to do the same with my reenactment group Wink

Thanks for sharing!

This, cool as it is, doesn't make me want to go to Norway... Because I've wanted to go to Norway for a long time. Razz Wink

I'd love to go to Ireland too!

(Just to beat the dead horse some more...)


That was pretty interesting. Took me a minute to understand why people were just up and wandering off, was expecting them to fall down as with some other reenactment groups.

Noticed a few things that looked like historical techniques being used. One guy did something that looked very much like a sword and buckler play if I'm not mistaken. Interesting.

That being said, I've been watching too much video gameplay footage on Youtube. I was mentally going "Ah, he hit the A button, switched weapons... Ooops, bit off more than he could chew. Respawn... Dang, he's dead again... Hey, he found an axe."

The FPS perspective is a neat way to film this stuff. People should do more. (Maybe I'll rig up something for my camera when I do Parkour...)

A lot people without helmets in that video, so are head shots allowed?

Like the perspective of the 1st person, could really get a good look at some of the kits people have.

Roderic; the target area is thighs, torso and upper arms for cuts, torso for thrusts; a headshot earns a disqualification.
All hits within the target area count, to keep things simple.

Colt; Some of the guys also do WMA; However, the rules of the game excludes a lot of techniques, though the principles remain.
Also, I33 shows few defenses against polearms :P
