I did more of a football tackle because he wasn't taking hits and drug him back through our lines because he droped his weapon.... from there i proceeded to smash his armor with my great sword over and over again until he started taking the hits :P

I don't like the minimum force rule in some games. It leads to bad sportsmanship and over inflated egos. At my park we have a saying "you made the noise" when some one tries to sluf a gut shot that forced a little wind out of them.

Yeah we do that too... we call it an audible pop. this way we know it's an actual strike and not the sleeve dragging across the other sleeve.

I was referring to the air being forced out of someone's lungs by a gut shot. They can't say "leg" or "butter" when everyone heard them go "oof" from their opponent's last attack.

A group of people are trying to revive the LA Amtgard shire known as Crimson Sanctum. Last weekend they had their first meeting since the park stopped meeting (I don't know how long ago). A group from San Diego including my self went up to pad their numbers and bring some loaners.

That is me on the left taking body mechanics with Downfall who is a fantastic swordsman. If you are in the LA area here is a face book link you may be interested in:

I LARP Guns of Icarus all the time, just pick up a mallet and run around hitting things.

Good times.

I don't larp, but I do play quidditch, which like 5 years ago would have been similar to larping. Now it's more tackling and pain.
