This is more of a vanity project for me. It probably won't get many views or replies, and that's okay. I love swords. Always have. I've taken some formal training, but here's the big problem with modern sword schools: it's all theory. I intend to remove it from the realm of theory. How to do this? Cutting. So let's get this out of the way. Swords are like martial arts training in these respects. 1) Disagreement about style- I don't care what your Sensei says. Not every style suits everybody. You aren't invincible. 2) Forget the movies- Historically, real sword fights were not long drawn out chess matches. I cut, and if I miss, I'm pretty much screwed. 3) More alike than you think- To be completely honest, there are really only so many ways to swing that sword. Wanna know why some cuts in Asian styles look like European ones? See the first sentence.
