Medieval Combat

Yesterday we went to a place called Castello Meleto and there they had really cool medieval hand-to-hand combat and also swords.

Here's the staging area. It's where these guys get ready to do mortal combat.

Here's a movie of the mortal combat.

During the second combat which was with swords, when one guy did a somersault to dodge a slice, he made a tourist fall down. Everybody laughed.

Here's a picture of those two who were fighting.

I'm a knight now--I am Sir Casey

Sir Casey at practice.

I'm off to my first combat. And I shall knock over a tourist so stay out of my way. Ciao, Ciao.
