How 14th Century Knights Fought While Wearing Armor

Fighting in 14th Century Armor

Norwegian economist, marketer, and history reenactor Ola Onsrud demonstrated with a friend how 14th Century knights were able to efficiently fight despite being highly encumbered by the full dressing of armor required at the time.

Onsrud created this in response to viewers’ questions about about dressing in 14th century armor.

Onsrud doesn’t limit himself to the 14th century, as shown in his various historical reenactment videos.
