This video shows a small part of Arme Antica's work on translating and realizing the art of wheat sickle combat as documented by Paulus Hector Mair in his work. Collectively in parts 1 and 2 are shown the four steps of the first play. In addition are examples of how play might continue from each step in the manner of sickle combat as it is laid out in the text and from general Medieval and Renaissance fight lore, as Mair's sickle fight fits in quite well, holistically speaking, with the rest of his documented aspects of the Athletic Art. Part 2 also shows other various aspects of sickle combat as well as finishing the first play.
The play is taken from a private translation of the original Latin of Mair's work. The various endings added after each part of the first play are a training habit at Arme Antica, used to develop a heightened sense of creativity, flexibility, and non-linear responsiveness in the student.
