Highland sword and targe fighting

This is interesting because it seems to be an entire combat system based of a few simple rules with the rest being just practice. None of this overcomplicated Oriental stuff. Good practical white-guy common sense. No wonder the Scots were used as the shock troops of colonialism.

I was wondering where the twist was! I've seen this before & it's an interesting video, but it's useful to keep in mind that the Asian stuff seems to have started off this sort of way (ex: not having things set up with preset moves that you have to remember in the heat of the moment, but probably won't because of that).
