Today it is often considered by many that duels are an unusual and barbaric tradition best left in the past. However, not everybody agrees with that notion.
This video captures the moment two gentlemen in a Brazilian town are dueling each other on machetes.
It looks like a scene from a medieval movie as the two men clash machetes in a heated battle. The ring of their blades is heard all throughout the village, gathering spectators.
We don’t know what could be the cause of the dispute between the Brazilian Tybalt and Mercutio, but it’s usually something serious when two gentlemen prefer to choose single combat as a means to settle their differences.
Reports indicate that it is not unusual for men in this region of Brazil to handle disagreement in such a fashion. Many of them work in the fields where the machete is a common tool.
