As commented by people over there I think it looks quite nice. Any thoughts here?

Hmmm, well, I have to say that I found some techniques quite well executed whereas others looked rather flawed to me. Postures were good, but some actions - like the Krumphau or some of the Windings didn't look really convincing to me. Or the starting sequence: that was no "Nachreisen", it was a step offline and a counter into the next opening. All in all rather mixed.....
But I think it was done as a strictly technical execution/training of a series of techniques in the "krieg" i.e. out of a binidng situation; so no real bouting situation at all.

one thing I found particularly strange was the word bobbing of the head that the guy on the left did at the end of a technique. He seems to be looking at the floor.

I should have posted the original thread before, here http://forums.swordforum.com/showthread.php?t=88877
