Some While Ago I Made A Video
about Chinese butterfly swords and you can see a little bit of it here and I have today been looking everywhere in my house to find those padded practice larp. If you like butterfly swords that I made myself and nope they’re just gone. I moved house about 10 months ago and in common with my 15th century Mace my best hiking boots which I just had resold and all the pictures that formed the background in my last house into the background to my videos. You know all those photographs of things in the jungle and those james, cosmo and various other bits um. I packed them all very carefully because they were important to me and then they like it seems my my padded Chinese butterfly swords.
They Just Sublimed, But An Antipodean Viewer Of
mine took pity on me and. sent from the other side of the planet these and of course, I was itching to try them out so these as you can hear are solid metal ones and so I could I could use these against a humor opponent with also a blunt, but otherwise solid and realistic weighted sword and so that is what I did now. I’m about to show you some footage of my trying these out against longsword Arming sword and and the like against humor skilled opponents using a hemopadded kit and just a few words of caution. . The first is that um i’m very rusty I haven’t actually practiced with these for many years and I had to I had to get out the old Hong Kong book of Kung Fu to remind myself of some of the moves and thus reminded.
I I Then Gave It A Whirl.
Another thing to bear in mind is that this was at the end of the the Covid 19 lockdown and I hadn’t done any exercise to speak of for about two years. Normally I go dancing twice a week while dancing all shut down and I I cycle everywhere, but there was nowhere. I needed to cycle to and for me it’s not a sport. It’s just transport so yes.
I Was Monumentally Unfit And Very
very rusty and just compound things. This was at the end of quite a long day’s shooting and it was a scorching hot day in which we were fighting in thickly padded kit and so we were all really tired and weary by the time. We got round to this so what you’re about to see is not people at their peak. I should also say that even at my peak, I wouldn’t say that I was a master of wing chun butterfly swords. I was just um.
I Mean Borderline Competent Is About As Far
as I would take it um, but anyway let’s see how I got on and we’re off I square up to him and adopt the wing Chun fighting posture. Zack has a much longer weapon and so my problem is how to close with him. Once I have closed one would hope that two swords beat one, but I slip and get bonked on the head so that didn’t go well. I think we can score that one to hema. I’m looking at my opponent Zach between the swords in front of me each held at a different distance to cover more possibilities being a bit generous again one Tohima now I’m leading with my left.
But Im Right-Handed And Generally Feel
that I’m quicker and more assured of eating with my right. I swap back now. I mostly get it right. I advance while dealing with his attack and keep going so that I win the race and chop him in the torso yeah. I mean you do get an after blow, but I think let’s see that again.
Im Waiting For Him To Make
his move and you can see that my right leg is a tempting target. I read the start of his attack and start advancing early into my block. There’s the block and at the same time. I’m chopping at his wrist with my other sword. I press the attack, keeping contact with his sword with my right sword, while he tries to pull it away to escape.

I Follow His Movement And Bring My Left
sword to a blocking position. hit him in the body with my right sword, which was free to thrust forward as soon as he withdrew his sword from it, which is a classic wing Jung principle. Having achieved this killing blow or rather having scored a hit in a friendly spout Aspiring. I then relax and bring my left sword down and he scores a weak after blow but i’m racking that one up to Kung Fu. So now it’s just 2-1 tohima.
He Goes For A High Threatening Guard
straight out of the hemotreetises nice metal on metal clang There. I leave my leg a bit vulnerable and he almost snipes it. I think I’ll score this next one as a devil slash yeah but a quarter of a second later. You hit me on the head so I think this was thinking a lot of doubles. It’s really difficult to control both weapons.
Not Need To Kind Of Bit Again
in slow motion. He gets a bit too close and I’m able to knock his point aside, but I’m too rubbish and unfit to follow up so nothing comes of this. He then comes in with an attack that seems to be an adaption for coping with my style. You can see that this first attack is weak and easily yields to my parry and he starts to bring his sword back and round for the real attack. I block at first with my right hand sword, which then slips off and is free to cut him across the belly, but my block with my left hand against his continuing attack is poor and he is able to slip off over the top of it and land.
A Decent Hit My Hit Was About Nine
frames before his that’s nine twenty-fifths of a. slightly over a third of a second, but in a real fight, I couldn’t rely on my blows being hefty enough to knock the wind out of his attack double now up to this point, I hadn’t been having trouble defending my legs and had become a bit complacent and I ascribed this next hit to that complacency watching the footage back. Though I have to add that though I did badly flat-foot myself as I advanced. It is also the case that Zack’s Timing is very very good. Now see that he has launched his attack and is advancing and I too am advancing to counter-attack.
By The Time His Sword Lands Here
hitting the guard on my right sword. He has already realized that he’s in trouble and is in retreat. I use both swords to control his and try to close the distance. He has plenty of. space behind him and is able to pull his sword out of my entrapment before I can get to range and then he counter attacks but I’m at a better distance now and I use both my swords to block his hard blow and then press forward and score hit again.
At This Point.
I relax and Don’t bother to defend myself against his after blow in a real fight. My hit would have been a hard stab. But here I did a gentle slash because we’re friends it’s all very messy isn’t it yeah we both recall a few guard positions in my case. They are of little practical use here save potentially some intimidation or confusion.
I’m able to tangle up his sword good and proper and I’m in quickly and chopping away. I got him that time and I’ve evened the score. This is different. to be honest.
I Think Half Swording Is An Inappropriate Technique
here his reach and tip speed were his two main advantages. I close in. He draws a dagger two swords versus one dagger is not a fair fight very messy three four. Now against Arming Sword and buckler. A very light tap on my mask’s bib and it seems that I at the same time chop him on the wrist, but at the time I gave him the hit so let’s go with that for all now watching the footage.
It Seems That Neither Of Us
hits here, but that’s apparently not what I thought at the time okay slash across the belly. You caught just sort of the material here that’s odd did you see the hits let’s watch again in slow motion just there you can see the point of Zack’s sword has just clipped the outside. of the thickly padded jacket next to my elbow and then Oh yes! I do chop him quite definitely in the side there and then draw across his belly, so how do we score that my hit is definitely later but much more solid. I’ll call it a double we both hit I’m not counting that it wasn’t a serious attempt yes across the belly well. I seem pretty pleased with myself.
Lets Look In Detail Though I Deal With
his thrust with my right sword then step in as he withdraws his sword. I bring my left sword up to defend and chop into his side and draw my sword across his belly, but then bonk you see his sword hit me very near its hilt. a bit later to do this? He had to push his right forearm into the blade of my left sword, but if his arm were armored that might be fine if I were not wearing a helmet, how bad would his blow have been not fatal. I’d say but I’d have a great scar on my forehead to boast about one to me a double who’s to say now arming sword on its own against me one to him. No I press the attack and perhaps he is too tired to run full tilt backwards.
You Can See That I Have The Advantage
as long as I can keep in contact with his sword. Oh blasted that was terrible Yes Zack gives me a chance to push his sword across his center line and I advance and score classic wing Chun yes looking back at the footage frame by frame. I can see that his sword clashed against mine and bent just enough for its tip to touch the bib on the side of my mask. Harry now takes over as my opponent and I pointlessly display a couple of guard positions a double ah yeah, but it was also. I think that was more or less the cross guard.
Oh Was It Right Yeah.
I was trying to do that, but I ended up just doing that Harry is being generous. Let’s check what he said yes. It seems that I’m landing a solid hit to his side while he is punching his hilt into my other hand and getting me in the head with the cross guard.
I Rush At Him And Keep Going And
he sort of gives up and turns away and so I appear to win but looking at the footage frame by frame. I see that as I chop at him at the end with my right sword, I touch his sword there on the way in his body language signals defeat and my hit was much more powerful so one to me, but not a clean victory. It seems to me that he froze a bit there perhaps intimidated by the unfamiliar weapon combo just for the demonstration for the camera.
