Sweet Mary it's been awhile since I posted anything!
Anyways, here are some great videos on axe play from a group from the Netherlands (I believe)
First up is a bout between two gentlemen in harness.
Second up is more of a demo video. All of it is very good, but the poleaxey goodness starts at 3:15.
In the both videos there are some moments where blows are obviously being pulled. Of course they are! These guys are using real axes and have their visors up - this is "loose play" or slower-speed sparring. They are not trying to kill each other, just show what they can do.
All in all, these are great videos (and there are more on their youtube page) and it's just great to see people training with the greatest weapon of them all
