                reality is in regular combat someone would bash an armoured helmet in with a hammer or other blunt means. not saying half swording is unrealistic and not real but i think this is feudal lord snobbery at some points of being the best at killing another knightly man using finesse and your beautiful blade (which you also had because of status) rather than what a soldier would plainly do - grug smash

                A sword is not cutting plate iron.
                As plate developed the one-handed Arming or Knightly Sword evolved into the two-handed Longsword. One of the ways it could be gripped was with one hand on the blade allowing greater dexterity in its control, almost like a prybar, to try to stab into the weak points of the armor, gripping it this way would also allow you to parry and use the pommel to bash or quickly flip it around to grip the blade with both hands and use the crossguards as a hammer to bash the helmet of an armored opponent. Have we ever seen this "murder stroke" in film or tv?
                But even more importantly was the Poleaxe, this developed specifically to fight an armored opponent. It had a hammer to deliver blunt force trauma, an axehead to crack through joints, and a spear tip to pierce them.

                They had blunt force weapons specifically designed to take on fully armored men-at-arms
                and the longsword developed to attack the weakpoints in armor

                just because someone can do something doesn't mean it was the best thing to do so or that prolific. most armies did not contain loads of armoured troops and swords and when armour was found, it was killed by any means necessary including gay wrestling, blunt force trauma, spiked weaponry and blades to weak points ranging from any old sword to very small thin knight killing daggers. I've even read of drowning knights.

                Sure, but the vast majority of actual knight-on-knight combat involved wrestling your opponent to the ground and stabbing him in the neck with your dagger until he stops moving, which typically doesn't make for very intriguing combat.

          Hard to say. I will incline for in the most cases, yeah. Depending of the rival expertise. Swords evolved from plain old bashing weapons designed to use force and momentum to do damage, to weapons designed to attack weak points on plate armour. And even that as plate became more common also did axes and blunt weapons. A poleaxe quickly replaced the sword as the dismounted knight's weapon of choice. But theory is still there, preserved and if you're capable enough you can use it to suit your needs, even if the rival is unpredictable

        What the webm doesn't show is how the guy is out of breath after this single roll and has to rest for minutes if he wants to keep moving.

        Same here, the webm is a montage omitting indications of exhaustion from these seemingly simple movements.

        What I'm trying to say is people underestimate the importance of economy of movements to preserve strength in actual combat or battle which last longer than edited videos and have mortal stakes. In this context, strive for realism doesn't leave place for spectacle.

          I only read about knights on the early 1000s, but I can tell you, they expended their whole time training or practicing their skills hunting and dueling, with plenty of meat on their diets. Specially during the unruly days of the early medieval ages was a common thing for bands of knights leaving their castles and attack another band. Usually with the purpose of raiding their neighbors. They made a reconstruction of a knight skull found on England and they saw how he was built like a rugby player because of his habits of food and training

          Aristocrats, and “Men at Arms” , whether actual knights, or well trained mercenaries, would have had a certain amount of training with these types of skills.
          “Tournaments” were used to show others that you were trained, or those who you employed, or who owed fealty to you, were well trained.
          The actual use of these skills might be armed fights or duels in the city square after drinking, or in conflicts with strangers or muggers on highways while traveling.
          In actual large scale conflict, knights and men at arms would likely do whatever they could to prevent getting killed, or to kill the other guy.
          Most higher skill techniques in battle were probably more used to kill riff raff or lower skilled and lower armed and armored opponents.
          Being able to disarm higher class opponents meant you could take those opponents as “hostages” to ransom.

          Actual high skill fighting techniques were used though.
          If you look at the various battles of the crusades, the battles were casualties snd losses are recorded tend to show much higher casualties on the muslim sides, unless the number of muslim troops was significantly higher than the number of crusader knights.

                >18th century
                What a late stage era to cherry pick to.
                There were regions throughout the middle ages where commoners were completely forbidden from owning weapons., Some just had bans on swords. Some made weaponry mandatory - but almost always it was spear or bow that mandatory.
                Not swords.
                Swords - especially around the time of the longsword which OP was specifically talking about - were for nobility.

                I mentioned that because dirks are famous for being part of the highlanders' costume in 1745, ie calling attention to the fact that they have very little to do with the middle ages. On your other points you are either persisting in being wrong or semantically weaseling.

                depends of the commoner and the time period. Man at Arms and similar servants may had money for a sword. But a medieval peasant would had a farm tool or a simple spear. Weapons like the Bill and the Voulge where originally farm tools turned into weapons as the armies became more profesionalized. And even by the time armies became profesionalized like for example the French Army post the Hundred Years Wars, the sword wasn't as important compared to the Pike or the Halberd

                That admission alone shows that it wasn't just a status symbol.

                well, it really was still a status symbol, the Man at Arms was still a servant and a minor landowner in some cases. To Serve implies a status, either to a knight or a lord. The knight also serves to a Lord. The sword was a piece of craft, dificult to make an expensive. To a knight or a Warrior it justified the cost. To a peasant it was more valuable a farming tool or a new cow. The sword as a status symbol comes from the value a determined social class gave it to it.

            he's right. At some point the knight became part of an arms race. Often being in a disadvantage against a peasant with a blunt or piercing weapon, or even a crossbow. Plate armour also made impossible for a sword to penetrate it, so the knights often dismounted and used poleaxes and halberds to gain an advantage against another plated knight. So the sword became more a status symbol than a actively used weapons

            >because that's what almost all medieval combat was
            No, it wasn't.
            A sword is not cutting plate iron.
            As plate developed the one-handed Arming or Knightly Sword evolved into the two-handed Longsword. One of the ways it could be gripped was with one hand on the blade allowing greater dexterity in its control, almost like a prybar, to try to stab into the weak points of the armor, gripping it this way would also allow you to parry and use the pommel to bash or quickly flip it around to grip the blade with both hands and use the crossguards as a hammer to bash the helmet of an armored opponent. Have we ever seen this "murder stroke" in film or tv?
            But even more importantly was the Poleaxe, this developed specifically to fight an armored opponent. It had a hammer to deliver blunt force trauma, an axehead to crack through joints, and a spear tip to pierce them.

    because that's what almost all medieval combat was, especially after the development and proliferation of full plate armour. most swords at the time didn't even have sharp edges since slashing and cutting had no effect on plate.

        that's a modern misconception. it was left unsharpened for three reasons:
        a) because it kept the blade strength on longer blades given only the upper 2/3rds were used for cutting in most fights
        2. because sharpening was a time consuming process and this made it 50% faster
