Gotta wonder what his neighbors are thinking.
Um, I think it's supposed to be a comedy type video. when I say think I really mean hope
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.
pretty hilarious how serious you are taking this lol (no offense)

Is proof he should do Judo and learn how to fall correctly.

Fixed that for you.

I'm no doctor, but he certainly sounds constipated.
