        Both should simply redo the points system so that it rewards what would be actual fight stoppers, instead of the fight ending when someone snipes the opponents pinky finger.

        it does look cool but ironically it's the least realistic of the three

          That is what the points system is though. Right of way ensures that you can't simply accept a hit to deliver one of your own and both of you get a point. You have to defend and defeat his attack first, because in real life a rapier thrust through your sword arm or through the chest and the fight is done and you're dead.

      i don't mind watching some longsword, but most tournaments end up with too much stop and start. i think swordfish demo'd a possible change to format a couple years back which treated the rounds more like boxing for scoring points. though at least swordfish does account for return blows in scoring.

      goddamn, i don't know why i had a visceral reaction to that shot of the arm cut, shit looked like a fricking cross-section. last thing that caused that was someone's lung breathing outside of their body.

    Nobody really fences those in any interesting capacity to actually watch and follow.
    However I saw some Poles doing a presentation on sabers and saber-like fighting in like medieval Poland and nearby and the fact they were flailing so wildly there were sparks coming off their sabers was pretty neat.

        Old Polish was a lot more complicated. Zoom zooms need the meaning to be clearly stated these days or they'll get lost.

      Funny, just yesterday I've watched a guy that was argumenting the movie is pure fiction for polish way of sabre fencing didn't appear till XVIII century. And I have to agree with him, for sabre in the beginning of XVII century was in Poland as a weapon of choice only 30 years in that time.

    It looks kind boring, just a dude in fancy clothes stepping back and forth. No helmet, no armour, no heraldry.

    And then suddenly saber turns into a fricking helicopter rotor.

        interesting, so other weapons besides guns can be discussed on this board, very interesting. it's almost as if a thread about a different tool or weapon would be related to this board.

      Fencing is worthless homosexual prancing pretending to be a sport, it's as far from a martial art as shitting your pants in public is, just like most other cucked olympic shit that's designed to appease women and sportsball viewers with rules made by the eunuch comittee that emasculates any martial activity out of existence.

    >a few seconds at most
    kek, fencing has been optimized to death for some time now. As it happens, the most effective technique for a duel where it doesn't matter if you get hit as long as you hit your opponent a fraction of a second sooner is to simply dive headfirst at him with your saber extended. Think like Yamaguchi stabbing Asanuma.
