Sometimes I wonder if you feel weird, voice acting almost all of the crazy people in your videos.
I also hope that slight feelings of weirdness can not keep you from making videos and that you will continue to make videos forever.
i dont know of you researched this or not, but the decapatating move is historically accurate (although it was generally used to cut off hands rather than heads)!
I'm actually really excited you noticed that. I've been studying the Italian Longsword focusing on Fioré de Liberi's work for about a year now with help from my local swordplay guild. The whole story, for me, is revolving around the way they swordfight, from the way they hold the sword to the guards and cuts they take. The guardian uses more wild mandrito cuts and a death grip on the handle as the adventurer nimbly dodges through a modified finestra guard, and rolled into a rear weighted posta de donna, into an arrest perry trying to take the centerline, but being overwhelmed by the strength of the guardian he smartly uses it to his advantage. Kind of a subtle brains vs brawn thing i guess.
The move you're talking to is where I started choreographing the scene too. I wanted to show the classic and unrealistic clash of swords and battle over that middle line and how it is easily countered by yielding and whipping around with the opponent's momentum to take his hands, or in this case his head.
Nice eye :D and thanks for the comment!
