The same is certainly done in armored combat. Again, the operative term is 
rarely. I have seen a few instances where a fighter has halted a fight because 
he could see the obvious concern of his opponent. He asked for a telling blow 
and based upon that either accepted and withdrew or found the culprit equipment,
usually a broom masquerading as a sword.

This can also be done by the marshals but I have more often seen it done by the 
fighters themselves.
