The penalty is that you use use that hand to block, you can't use it to stab. If you use it to stab, you won't be blocking with it.

Those guys aren't skilled warriors (lets ignore the hokyness of the entire video for the moment), and you can tell that they are pretty comfortable holding those items in that manner. Almost like they were designed to have the option to be held that way.

Of course, if they used it to stab, they'd still take a penalty for OHA.
