The last time this was posted a few months ago (different video, same folks) there were a few shots of some of the competitors after a match. About what you'd expect, huge bruises, one guy with a good-sized cut to the forehead that was bleeding quite freely, mention of a guy losing a finger at the championship bout last year.

They're in the process of starting up a league here in the US. If armor wasn't so damned expensive I'd sign up in a heartbeat.

Not really. The Dog Brothers practice an offshoot of Eskrima. These guys are doing what their ancestors did 500 years ago.

Which is why a lot of us history buffs, when we read something like, "they fell on each other with swords for four hours," kind of doubt that version of the event.

Same guys aren't in the front of a scrum doing that for four hours, or forty minutes in a row for that matter.

This is not mortal combat. Knights would not throw themselves into a melee like these people do. There is no real threat of death so the players are more emboldened and less hesitant. Plus you cannot keep this level of combat up for hours upon hours. In real life soldiers on the line rotated out after several MINUTES of fighting for rest. For instance a if a Roman line was ten soldiers deep the front line soldiers would fight for 6 minutes and rest for 54 minutes unless they died.

This is a cool spot and looks like is brutal and results in some serious injuries. Also normal soldiers in medieval times did not have full armor like these guys have.
Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state.

Most likely "Counted Blows" combat, it's a practice they actually used in Medieval Tournaments.
You land so many hard shots to your opponents head, arms, body etcetera to win, another is to
fight until your opponent submits and admits defeat or falls.

I came here to post this, Antons vids amaze me and I wish I could find a local place to get into long sword fencing.

That's a bruiser sport, indeed. The guys I know who play it are the rugby, brawler types.

Since actual combat with such equipment involved attempts to pierce into and under armor and, well, kill people, I'm not sure how much that actually reflected reality. But, yeah, it looks like good TV.

Not exactly the "lightning bolt, lightning bolt" crowd. Though, ironically most of both tie into the SCA in the States.
That there were multiple people posting under snowleopard's account is a definite. Whether or not those people all inhabited the same body is open to conjecture.

A proper longsword (I.e not wallhanger junk) is actually quite light and quick

Yup it's surprising that everyone discounts the big two handed or hand a half swords when in reality they are usually in some cases lighter than a katana which is considered to be the fast sword.
