Western Martial Arts: Rennaissance CombatWhen I was at College I ran into some nerds LARPing in front of their dorm swinging homemade medieval foam swords. They informed me that Westerners had martial arts but they had been lost to antiquity. I found this simple idea interesting as I had never thought of it that way. Guns, artillery, tanks and aircraft had indeed for the most part replaced hand to hand combat.
Recently a friend shared this video about Western Martial Arts with me. Far from beta-males LARPing this was full on awesome.
Interestingly enough these men might have to fight the Ottomans again….This time on their own soil.
Bonus ancient archery speed shooting video…this takes dedication and disciple.
