|While I love the show...I think they should have a crew that has been in combat. They seem to put alot of credit for the warrior who trains for fighting as to one who lives combat. I'm not saying you should discount training, but it only goes so far...ask any veteran. There is a old saying among warriors, about training" once the fight starts...the book goes out the window" As for the Viking vs the Samuari...not to discount the skills of the Samuari, I believe the Vikings would have managed a victory. Experiecne counts! The same with the Maori vs Shalon monk...I think the Little monk would have soiled his cute uniform. To remember all he was taught, and keep his cool in a encounter with a battle tested Maori would be an feat. To show how battle experience makes a difference, I would remind you that Audie Murphy was rejected from the Marines, Navy and Airborne before the regular Army took him(even then his CO tried to get him transfered to a non-combat unit), he fought through the war becoming the most decorated soldier in world war 2. You can not tell what will happen in training, only battle will tell.|
|This show just proved the viking would win because without the kanebo for the most part wasn't a real weapon being mostly found in mythology|
no actually the kanebo was a extremely rare and obscure weapon for not just the samurai, but any soldier to use it was mostly found in mythology used by oni and if a person did used one it was his only weapon no katana or bow just the club because it was so incredibly heavy and hard to use, the warriors don'y have to have the same amounts of weapon like the ninja had like 10 weapons when the spartan only had four.
In reality the samurai would not of carried the kaneco with all the others, vikings on the other hand would of carried all the weapons displayed , except maybe the sword which could be replaced with a hand axe.
I would say it was even and i truly believe that these kinds of questions will never be answered. The main stay is that while people want to bury into specifics when you go into a fight and you worrying about how many different weapons you want to use. i say the fact that the samurai would only have one or two weapons on him makes him a little more dangerous. Sure the viking might have more on him but with more weight comes more of a burden, also with that being said who has time in a fight to seriously fight and switch between weapons. this isnt a hand to hand fight and you are switching between techniques, so i really think they should run the simulation with the warriors with each weapon comparison and then using the best weapons to have a final showdown that way we may be able to see if things will work to a little more decisive victory.
