    Pure show. Impressive and requires a hell of a lot of practice and talent to pull off the form, but show. First and foremost, not a real katana. That one is specifically designed for such shows. Durable enough to handle any drops, quick twirls, and the like while also being much lighter. However, should NOT be used for anything more.

    As far as technique, my knowledge of sword work is extremely limited, but obviously not practical in any sense of the word when speaking in terms of actually fighting.

    Doesn't mean it's not fun to do or watch. I practice tricking from time to time. Will I ever use it in an actual fight? Hell no. However, it's fun and a workout. :P

    Yes, I am posting the Maga of the Krav variety.

    What about this, is this skill or showmanship?


    I have to admit, it does look pretty badass.

    This is the skill of showmanship.

    Compliant: (yawn). It's like Aikido and the booj had a baby.....and shat on it.

    IIF is spot on. The problem comes when they claim that they are walking, talking, killing machines.
    Also, whirling around in Hakama makes you look like you're getting ready to fight Feyd-Rautha:
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    Makes you wonder when the Israeli's will admit that it isn Krav that makes them deadly, its the cluster bombing schools and hospitals.

    You never hear "They young palestinian boy throwing stones was disarmed by merciful use of Krav Maga and returned to his parents" It usually comes out like "The 8 year old terrorist was taken in a vicious gun battle between assault rifles and rocks"

    I think some of you must have baton twirl envy. I'm going to go opposite on this one and say this is the only applicable skill for a sword. The only real use for a sword anymore is either larping, historical value, or just for fun.

    Lame. Every one of attacks missed those bystanders.
