RIDDLE OF STEEL!!!!
Hell were not trying to kill each other....... well we are, but not for real. We have a point system so you can literally bleed someone to death as a tactic used in a real fight or kill them with one blow.
So below are all the kill shots from a 5 minute bout.
enjoy. These pictures are 3 yrs old. Larsen and I have moved onto longsword....... sans armor. and no.... not full contact. That would be dumb.
I'm on the left- Larsen is on the right ( in shorts) I lunge and he hits me with a thrust to my underarm- pierces my lung. I'm dead
A simple thrust catches Larsen in the neck. Its just a poke but its his jugular so..... He's dead.
Larsen grabs my blade. HEY! ( totally legal in a street fight).
My blade caught Larsen goes for a cut, which I block with my hand. Ouch!
So I kick him in the gut! Also legal in a street fight.
I press the advantage of the kick and a cut to the head finishes Larsen off.
Later.....a well timed thrust catches me in the belly. I'll bleed out for the rest of the day and then die. Sad.
Attack and defend. We both attack at the same time but I block his cut with my arm and land my cut to his head.
A big and risky move, I commit to a leaping off line attack and luckily land a cut to the head.
