    You did, indeed. ARMA does produce some useful video clips.

    Too much like playing favorites. There are plenty of other groups that do excellent work in the same field; they're all welcome to argue their points here, but IMO it would be a mistake for the forum itself to align with any particular association or approach, even just by stickifying a link.

    Here are two ringen videos by the ARMA Poland group. Both are pretty nicely done.

    that was just awesome, I'm not sure if it was the take downs or because of the music... but it wound up going very nicely together.

    The music is from a pc game called "The Witcher", by the way.

    I took a look at the game and realized that the combat style is actually very much based on HEMA.

    Nonetheless the takedowns were great! Good to see videos of people who move like they actually know what they're doing.
