P.S. excuse my English

Sorry Hephestus, but I do not understand your question. I do not know the word greaves. (checked in dictonary and the meening was incorrect)
Do you mean "glove" or "gauntlet"

you must know that it is not automatic to win above all when the secutor it is in the net, when this is fast to cover itself with the shield. The adversary that I met is Rufus puts into effect them vice champion of the world of wrestling greco-roman veterans and in the body to body it is not easy to strike it. For before the question I send a relief to you from terme the Stabiane di Pompei. One of the two provocatores still wears the shield, can see the proportions.

Ave !

Regarding the winner: Dont take it seriously. I put smilies to the end. It was just a joke.

My question regarding the provocators was because we found no evidence that any of the shield that were used in the arena had 2 handles(levers) as 1 for your palm and another 1 where you can place your arm into, like hoplite shields. All we found looks more like scutum style shilds. Only one handle(lever)
I wish to fight with shield with two handles, as it is much better. So that is why I asked it. I would like to find an evidence that some kind of shield with 2 handles are authentic.

Vale!

Ave,
optimae Opifex,
I had understood that joke was one. I have only explained, as you will know very well, that the result of an encounter depends on the ability of the combatants. Returning to the shield: leaving from the point that the shield was of organic material (wood and leather) the only testimonies of ritrovamento are the metal. Therefore after various experimentations in combat we are arrives you to the conclusion that that one is taken more effective logic and and is also compatible with the reliefs. If you make the proportion in the second image you will see that the length of the arm is advanced to the center of the shield.

In the site of You Tube a spectator has published a personal video from him filmed during the gladiatorial shows developed to Caerleon in July 2006.
In the video it is not written who is the group of fighters, but I tell you that they are the gladiators of Ars Dimicandi.

Good vision

I enjoyed watching the video's mightily.....so many techniques so well performed. I do was suprised to see the combatants delivering wide sweeping punches with their whole arms, is this something that is very common in the wrestling? Most martial arts as far as i know of (except for ring sports like freefight etc.) do no teach that technique. They keep themselves to close-by sweeping punches.... afraid that the opponent might take the arm.
