So, I've mentioned here and there that I'm involved in Medieval combat re-enactment, and Martial Arts. Usually, I follow this up with a lengthy description, or just kinda leave it there. Now, however, I have material!! First there's a link to a documentary about the U of I group, and I'm heavily featured in the interviews. Also available now is Wreckreation Nation, which featured a sister group to the one I'm in. Great coverage, which gave an overall accurate view of the group they covered. My group is much less role-player, much more fighting-oriented, but really we're pretty close to identical to anyone outside the sport. Fergus is actually a good friend of mine. The groups involved aren't really the heaviest hitters, but they have fun with it. So, here you go! Comment, ask questions, whatevs. It's a favorite topic of mine, obviously.
Also, a link to some of the better video of actual fighting happening at an event. This stuff is the real deal.
