Amazing longsword

 I believe in fast longsword, but this group take it to a new level (so fast that one of them actually trips over a sword at one point).

I've never heard applause for 'over your own' before.  Too many people do it like a slow, mechanical dirge.  (I had the chance once to teach the move to a group that normally did rapper, and after half a dozen tries they got it to a reasonable speed and flow - rapper is related to longsword and is typically done much faster)

It's really interesting to see longsword danced at rapper speed.

Wow, this was amazing!
It needs lots of training, this speed is considerable and still the figures are pedect and so is the choreography. And the fiddle is good too!

The dance is a traditional one, but they've done a lot of tweaks to the choreography to make the movements look really good.

I've never seen longsword done this fast before.
