    Check out his other videos. If this is a joke, it's directly in opposition of the things he shills.

    A few thoughts:

    -Test cutting isn't really something you want to **** around with, kinda like shooting a gun. If you have solid shooting skills, you might practice shooting on the move, but if you're a gun noob, you should have your fundamentals down first. The quality of his motion doesn't convince me that he should be running and swinging a big sharp object. I hope he doesn't cut any fingers off his left hand. The icy conditions might also be a problem if he slips and impales himself.

    -I didn't like how he turned around. There's a few ways you can turn around quickly from a charge but he didn't do them.

    -IMHO you're probably going to be better off working a thrusting technique from a charge like that.

    -Weird followups (jumping two handed downward cut?)

    -I've done a few stickfighting partner drills that specialize on the charge. Personally, I prefer to use a high cover position followed by a low strike. There's several reasons for this:
    -if you swing at their head, you are open underneath that arm, and they'll hit you. If they use the tip, they'll get to you first.
    -exchanging blows with weapons isn't really acceptable with momentum like that. Delivering a killing blow a split second before or after one hits you is no bueno.
    -the "caveman chamber" position, where the weapon is cocked over the right shoulder, leaves the weapon behind you. This is backwards- your opponent should always have to get past your blade to get to you. Hence the high cover I like. Don't take my word for it though- check out old cavalry saber manuals about how to hold your arm before hitting them on the drive by with a big blade.
    -the head can be ducked to avoid the strike and a lower counter made at that moment. The legs, however, are very difficult to move out of the way, since people don't really jump over low strikes like in the movies.
    -if we're in fantasy land where we're out there charging our enemies with big edged weapons, we might as well consider armor, and alternative targets to avoid helmets and stuff.

    But this:

    Quoted for truth. He's swinging like a retard, and the only reason anybody would grant him a moment's notice is because he's doing so while wielding a sword.

    Looks like a nice ginunting - pity it is being wielded by such a moron.
