All that makes injuries much more likely.

    Mordschlag, you're an ARMA guy & ARMA typically doesn't engage in competitions. I don't doubt that you train & spar regularly. I would question if you have ever participated in a competition in any combat sport.
    That's a fair and logical point. It's true that while I do spar frequently I do not compete in tournaments. Still, one has to wonder why we see some groups spar and compete with a myriad of armor while others do not (and yet come out in good health).

    Anyway I feel like continuing the discussion of safety in competition\sparring here would only derail Axel's thread, so perhaps we should make a new thread for that topic or discontinue it. Fair?

    Very fair.

    Axel, if the video you posted is merely a rough draft & something that you mean to build upon in the future I would very much like to see footage of your Ringen material. Oh, & I really enjoyed the mask's eye view of your training. That was fun.
