I just found their video clip showing some techniques from various german sources.
Swiftly and with style

There are obviously a few issues with the execution of the techniques, but generally I would say that is a well constucted video - I especially like the use of original manuscript images between techniques.

It's features in this discussion on SFI
http://forums.swordforum.com/showthread ... 274&page=3

I think the guy's that made it comment on it about comment 57 They admit it has a few mistakes. It seems all videos are a moment in time ;-) I think later in the discussion hes say thats the first time he has seen him self doing it.

I don't do German stuff so I don't know what to compare it to but I think it looked pretty nice and I liked the way it was presented.

I met these guys at the 2006 WMAW event. Overall I like their video, it shows good knowledge of the source materials. However, I don't like their application (execution) of techniques. Everything they do is always done soft, with unrealistic distance, and with little martial intent. At the 2006 WMAW event I told them they should consider adding some violence to what they do. I think my comment went in one ear and out the other.

Yeah, it looks as though they are a bit too focused on making stuff look exactly like the images, where it often looks as though combatants are really close to eachother.

They are a little tentative etc., but it's a good idea for a video in terms of execution...

If it's Cory W i think it is, he seems like a really nice chap, very earnest, he's got his own ideas, but seems willing to listen too.
I reckon they'll be people to watch in the future. :D
