I noted that a person using a Longsword would have a -1D penalty if say, someone with a knife got inside his reach. I liked this, and thought about movies where this commonly happens....and the hero smashes the pommel of his sword down upon his enemy.

I noticed in those video links that the no frills European sword techniques appeared more along the lines of what I've been taught (without weapons) as compared to the "dance" of Asian styles.

to Paedrig: have you ever watched Rome, the HBO series? It was quite good. It took some historical liberties, yes, but it was an extremely gritty look at Roman life in the 1st century BCE with some astounding performances and sets. Definitely worth the watch.
