Watch a sword expert react to The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power! How realistic are the swords and armour in Amazon's Rings of Power, and could you really use a sword as a springboard? We got sword expert Matt Easton to take a look at these Rings of Power clips.

From the flashback scene with Finrod, to the Rings of Power battle with Galadriel and the Ice Troll, Matt shares his HEMA expertise on sword combat and just how realistic this show is so far. Matt Easton is a Historical European Martial Artist (HEMA), Antique Arms Dealer, and owner of the fencing club Schola Gladiatoria.
