    Full chain mail and plated (padded I assume) helmets makes this really interesting. Axes weren't very good vs chainmail (by very good I mean higher deflection rate; by no means did it prevent crushing damage). That's why crushing weapons were created for the most part which makes this really interesting to watch.

    What's really interesting though is even if the axe is blunt with a larger (thicker?) than normal bladed edge (preventing cutting damage through the chain) they still had no problems swinging for the legs which would incur some serious damage if it hits. Though I am not sure what they are wearing on their legs for protection.

    I wonder if they are trained in this sort of thing or just going at it fight to the death style.

    And where do I sign up for a bout? That 'no axe' take down was sick.

    Hm.

    Slightly different from the axe fighting I learned.

    Great video.

    Here's a good soundtrack for it - sadly only in german, but then, so was the fighting-vid:

    It does seem like the legs would be the most effective target. One good crushing shot against an ankle seems like it could pretty drastically affect the outcome.

    Huh? What was 'good against chain mail(sic)' then? I mean, armor fucking worked, that's why people used it.

    Kind of a low percentage target, though.
