+ various stars for the gut on kendo boy, the larper's invisible shield and the way his boots slip around on the gym floor.

ps the larper won right?
Randroid
If you LARP, you cannot win.

Killer Joe
Mr. Fancyboots. Very nice.

Smellvin
He's not a LARPer. He's a legitimate Viking man-at-arms hired by his government to keep the filthy Swedes out of their fjords.

"Kendo guy and a larper"

What's the difference?
Hooper_X
Two great failures that fail great together!

My ears, they burn.
don piano
if you upload western martial arts vs. a bouncer I will four star it
Blaise
Will five star Kendo vs. Pingu.

Watching that larper swing his shinai is painful. He has no clue.

Check out my submission in the hopper for something a bit closer to what WMA folks practice.

don piano
glasseye, I want to make this clear, I voted that clip up specifically so we could have another forum to mock you

glasseye
Feel free.

NineEleven
Oh, so THIS is what you were talking about. Internet people using chain mail, I never would have figured.

Please tell me that no one actually calls that shit Western Martial Arts. You will be lying through your teeth, but it will make me feel better.

There is actually a body of surviving literature from the 15th and 16th century on the subject of.... European combat techniques. It's a valid and interesting albeit geeky area for historical study. I'm not saying it's a valid foundation for glasseye's LARP club or any form of physical recreation, mind you, just that when WMA nerds talk about their shit dating back to what the OLD SCHOOL KNIGHTS AND SHIT DID they're just making a distorted and inaccurate claim, not one completely pulled out of their ass.

glasseye
There are earlier pieces, such as the I.33 manuscript from ~1280.

There are many text descriptions of a knight's training that we can extrapolate from, but it is true that they lack authority for the actual forms of combat. We patch together what we know from a wide variety of sources, and try to minimize extrapolation as much as possible.

glasseye
And no, what this guy does is amateur stick waving, not WMA.

phalsebob
Good lord, is an actual discussion of this arising... with actual references to specific manuscripts. I'm as impressed as I am unimpressed by these two 'martial artists'.

Hooper_X
This is the beauty of POETV. We can openly mock fat dorks and also discuss surviving texts of the medieval era IN THE SAME COMMENT THREAD.

The secret to victory is forward, forward, triangle, square.

-1 star because a Twinkie didn't fall out if the LARPers pocket.

Dammit! This is worse than the kendo versus sabre fencing. At least those two were both sports and they must have agreed on some set of rules the two shared.

This has got to be a D&D guy who graduated to SCA who got got into an argument with his kendo practicing buddy about whether the samurai or medieval knight was better and decided to settle it amongst themselves. This reeks of Star Wars vs Star Trek vs Babylon 5 nerdom.
zatojones
More like he was in the SCA and started to believe he was so badass that he need to graduate up to "real steel" fighting to show those SCAdian stick jock how a real man do.

Doomstein
-1 for no use of 'lightning bolt!'
kingarthur
Weeaboo? Dorkaboo? Weea-SCA-aboo? What's the appropriate term here?
Vicious
"Fag."

I want to walk up behind the Kendo kid and hit him in the head with a stick.
yoyo1
Wow the larper guy could at least add alittle fantasy in his fighting instead of turning around waving his stick like an idiot.
Pie Boy
Kendo guy needs a little kid on his back. Then he'd win.

5 for the weaboo only apparently knowing one attack and repeating it ad nauseam, no matter how many times it fails.
j lzrd / swift idiot
I love when they give each other little love taps.
CornOnTheCabre
where the fuck is his BROADSWORD
Spastic Avenger
I misread it at as western Marital Arts.
