Woo! Darradarljod's team got a win! Then they got bashed by Felag. "We got a bleeder!" haha

Overall, victory went to AUSTRALIA! AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!

I wanna know which one Darradarljod was! Someone on his team was just pummeling another guy's face! :o

How was the experience?

Haha yep that Felag guy was bleeding, bad. That team had badly designed open face helmets and shield punching them in the head was the order of the day.

Aussie sent their best fighters and (with the help of an experienced Waikato/Tauranga mercenary or two, may I add!) took away the gold! My team placed third.

How was the experience?
At 50:40, I am the black helmed fighter in the front of the team. At 51:05 I am in the far right corner of the list pummeling a Belgian fighter in the head with my shield. Whenever you hear someone shout "GO DANIEL" they are cheering me on. Hope that helps!

As for the experience - this was my first competition. Its intensity couldnt be compared with any exertion in the training battles or gym. I'm a fit guy, but I was so empty of energy that my body felt physically hollow during the later fights. Suffocation in my helmet turned into hyperventilation a couple of times immediately after the rounds. I entered this fight with a pulled hamstring (couldn't lift my left foot above my right ankle), but as soon as the each first buffet is dealt, adrenaline spikes and my body had 100% functionality for each round. To be honest, I was pretty much in shock between rounds. I'm the most inexperienced fighter on my team however, only been doing this a few months. Some things (like how to control breathing) will be learned with experience...but apparently the exertion doesnt get any easier. Here's to the first tournament of many! Thanks for watching!

P.S. be sure to switch to camera two for the better viewing (the button next to the full screen option). Those times I listed above when I first appear are based on camera two's recording.

A few thoughts:

1. Holy crap, you really DO have an ugly Norman haircut! Complete with the back of your head being shaved out!

2. Breathing is definitely one of the things people don't think about- but helms are hideously stifling inside. I'm not at all surprised you ended up with periods of hyperventilating, given how amped up you probably were.

3. What do you guys make your shields out of? SCA heavy fighting literally put all the meaning ever into "sword and BOARD", being the shields were most often made of reinforced plywood. Another thing that inevitably looks easier than doing is carrying around one of those things- because they are incredibly heavy.

4. Your daughter is adorable, dude.

The kite shields pictured are made from plywood. Most of the shields are made from plywood. The small pavise AKA "punching shield" I use in the video is much thicker wood cut from a truck deck.

Sorry lads, can't embed this one due probably to my own computer illiteracy. This is a video of some of the heated combat at Ohura recently. Some great footage! Keep an eye out for me in the fighting - I first appear in the still frame at 41 seconds (Black helmed axeman wearing the Waring coat of arms on the back of my neck).
