    Talhoffer's bizarre "man vs. woman" duel on video



    It had to happen eventually ... here's some interpretation and playful experimentation based on Hans Talhoffer's very peculiar "man vs. woman" duel scenario, in which the man is armed with a club and stands waist-deep in a pit, while the woman can move freely at ground level and is armed with a rock in a sock.

    During the Roman Empire, women fought in the public arenas, both as free women and as slaves. They competed in the opening of the Coliseum in AD 80. According to Juvenal, it became fashionable for women of the nobility to train and fight in the arenas...
