    At least you're realistic about you do.

    Wafting = dumbass with a sharp object.

    Elegance = a lifetime of study with a sharp object.

    Big difference in some respects and none whatsoever in others. Depends upon perspective

    Looking crazy is a pretty good way to go when you're breaking up a violent crime in progress. Looking crazy with a yard of sharpened steel is even better.

    Cut him, I would wager. Swords are pretty good for that kind of thing, or so I hear.

    Probably swat him lightly while moving backwards and hoping the guy would run away, causing more damage than one might imagine.

    If they do it's probably BS given the history. However you don't need much skill to injure somebody with a sword. So long as you've got "hold it pointy end out" down, you're good to go against most.

    Looking crazy can have the undesired effect of making the other person act crazy as well. Cutting up a potentially unarmed man is a good way to end up in jail.

    I don't know if I have that much faith that someone in that situation would keep their cool and not slice and dice. Especially with adrenaline kicking in.

    Is their style a bs style?? Sorry to ask, but I have never heard of that style before.
