You are not important.
THAT is a delusion.

Oh so it's about ego then. lol Support something in a futile pissing contest. :) Trying to provoke me with these comments like the others of my fans is old hat. ;)

Understand, first, that you are the stranger, here.
Understand, next, that unlike most web forums, people don't come here just to argue. They come here to argue from positions of authority. You can get an inkling of that authority when you see colorful buttons like "Professional Fighter," "Judo Black Belt," and "Instructor," next to their names.
Such credentials are not given out willy-nilly as some sort of silly game (although there are a few silly tags). Those individuals have been vetted by Bullshido leadership, and frequently by Bullshido membership, as having those credentials.
If you want to argue, have at it, but understand that your "opinions," mean absolutely dick until/unless you provide verifiable evidence.

It's really simple here. State your opinion, and back it up.
Here's mine: based on the fact that I can hit people with 5 years' experience on the head with a stick whenever I want, despite them holding a stick to defend themselves, and based on the opinions of people who are universally trusted in the online sword arts world such as Keith Larman, Meik Skoss, Ellis Amdur and others, anyone who wants to take a sword away from me empty-handed is going to get hit on the head 100% of the time unless they are extremely skilled, in which case they might have a 1/3 chance.
In fact, when I say hit on the head, I mean I can do it with a straight overhead swing for the top of the head, just like they practice in their kata, without resorting to any other targets or odd angles or tippy-tappy small tournament-style attacks.
