Demonstration Of 15th Century Combat In Full Armor

October 15, 2014


This is a video demonstrating medieval combat maneuvers and strategies in full armor. Apparently the secret to success was managing to get your sword into the eye hole in your enemy's helmet. For reference, that is still an applicable strategy today. Same goes for using magic to freeze their hearts and kill them from the inside out. Back me up, Merlin! "I'm not making you another boner potion." Haha, what?! I've never asked for one of those! Come on bro, I brought you those dragon scales you needed.

Keep going for the video, then meet me in the woods behind my house and we'll beat each other with sticks until my mom calls us for dinner.

Thanks to GI, who plans on traveling back to the medieval ages with an army tank and ruling all of Europe.

  • Which swords these armors are using? Are they a battle ready swords or a replica one? By the way the video was great because now I can see the hard work of medieval knights of how they used to carry armors!! http://www.museumreplicas.c...

    For anyone interested in european sword fighting (or technical term Historical European Martial Arts), you can find more information here:

    If you want to find a group near you that works with such a thing you can use the club finder here:

  • Bling Nye

    Huh...I didn't realize medieval combat involved taking naps and doing calisthenics ...

  • asdfasdf

    not so surprising, the spartans did nude stretching at the 300 battle who's name currently escapes me

  • asdfasdf

    these are random nerds who work at the museum, picture this with marines

  • NynjaSquirrel

    You mean the overblown steroid jockeys? Id be willing to bet one of these 'nerds' who've spent years researching combat techniques would take down a marine in armour in seconds.

    The real question here is: with that kind of mobility why are power walkers not utilising this technology for a better workout? Usually I laugh at how ridiculous they look but I'm sure I would think twice about it if they were clad in full plate mail and sporting a halberd...

  • Xankar

    This armor makes you a walking tank, geez...

  • asdfasdf

    now add a couple thousand pounds of steel covered horse at a full gallop

  • FlavoredAir

    Not a single reference to the scene from "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" when they're in medieval England (just before they meet the princesses)... I AM DISAPPOINT!

  • Conrado Parra

    so it all came down to ass and arm pit stabbing...

  • David Gabel

    Considering those were vulnerable spots in a suit of armor, in a real fight, you take any advantage you can to kill your opponent. if it meant putting a sword into the eyes from the visor or a dagger into the armpit and into the socket of the shoulder, then you did it.

    thats what my ex-girlfriend said

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    Pretty practical if you ask me. I mean, imagine needing to poop while wearing a full armor. You can't just take it out. On the other had there should be some really nasty unflattering wounds.

    Also, crotch grab at 3:00

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    That was actually really interesting, normally people claim to be doing the same but really are just having a lot of fun pretending to sword fight. This seemed much more like getting down to the grim business of killing someone.

  • ODwanKenObi

    Grim business of Face and @ss stabbing.

  • Bling Nye

    Is it just me, or is it weird that "corn hole" and "pie hole" each refer to an orifice, and it's pretty clear which is which... and that they both involve food?

  • ODwanKenObi

    because that's where food goes for some folks

  • Bling Nye

    You know anyone that puts corn in their ass? I don't. But I don't have many friends, so...

  • ODwanKenObi

    I said for some folks. I'm assuming someone stuck an ear of corn up their bum at some point for that word to come into use. However, despite my journalistic integrity, I have done no reasearch on the subject of butt plugs.
