This.  I mean, how long did it take Daffy to "Ho! Haha! Guard! Turn!
Parry! Dodge! Spin! Ha - THRUST!" with his buck-and-a-quarterstaff?

On the other hand, I've seen bad SCA fighters weighted down with
lots and lots of faux armor, and 5 seconds per action would be a kind
and generous estimate.  One guy I remember in particular needed at
least that much time to huff and puff between swings of his weapon.
