Those guys are brain-damaged. Maybe figuratively now but literally soon. Stopped watching after the one dude was trying to hammer at the base of the skull with the stick end. Only bad things can come of that.
- getting your eyes put out doesn't improve your skill
-I thought everyone but Tom Kier in the more extended video basically sucked.
-No real closing footwork or evasion used, people just butted heads with kickboxing stance.
-Homeboy doesn't understand how to do a belly-down armbar, and gave up a fully locked triangle choke to throw potentially brain-damaging punyo strikes to the base of the skull. Ass
I saw that first vid a few years ago, and when I tried that low forehand to the ankle with the roll (first move in the vid) in sparring, I messed up my shoulder.
Apologies if this has been posted already but I think you'd be hard pressed to find anything more full contact than this:
Guy with the stache is a bad mofo
Guy w/o stache needs to learn a triangle
I am a dumbass. Only saw the vid in the ring :)

I'm definitely no expert yet in FMA but that second video is booty. Besides the aforementioned abaniko-heavy exchanges (not intrinsically bad I guess), I can't seem to find any evasive FMA footwork which kind of goes back to the stick/blade rhetoric.
I also don't have kicks in the system I study so maybe someone else can comment on that but i feel like if i tried any of my muay thai low kick at the speed these guys in the vid are doing them, I would get my shin cracked by their stick.
That makes me curious, do any of you FMA guys have kicks in your curriculum? If so what are the strategies to make sure you don't get your leg cut off?
Perhaps others with more experience in the system than I have can comment and expand or even refute what I have related.
