    Because I'm pretty sure if they wanted you dead, they'd use Terrible Mad Science on you, not a sword.

    My prediction: Mythbusters will test the amount of force necessary to cut through a Shuko. If the one tested can withstand the average ***** swing of a ninjer, then they will say it is plausible for it to happen assuming the reaction is precise and fast enough. Dale will claim all of ninjutsu has been validated by the Mythbusters.

    Kempofist has the correct. It's true that they are intersted in the properties of the shuko and the properties of a sword coming in at a specific velocity, not the practicality of the technqiue itself. Personally I think the technqiue is bullshit given that the way people train it. Think sword version of the lunge punch to get my drift. The actual show doesn't sound that bad, the only problem I see with it is the promotion of bujinkaners as legitamate sources of ninjitsu.

    It's much like how they determined the ninja had enough force in his hammer strike to be comparable to a defibrillator shock, thus being arguably capable of stopping the heart? Let's not consider the practicality or plausibility of hitting that exact spot, or the fact that the MT guy hit the same area with more likelihood with a knee earlier with 100x more force.

    This thread is about the MythBuster's ep, if you want to talk about Fight Science, start another thread.


    Even the Bujinkan has more credibility then the Figth Science Ninja.

Or when you were farther away? I can see, with the approximate luck required to win at keno, how you might PARRY a strike with a shuko, but to hold the blade long enough to disarm the weilder? I honestly thing you'd be better off by far to try to slap the inside flat of the blade with your hand or forearm then to reach out and touch the cutting edge if pressed at those quarters.
    There are other factors that come into play, for example, how you are moving, direction etc. In other words, you wouldn't just be raising your hand, the rest of your body is doing things also, moving off line slightly, dropping your body under the arm that's moving up. Things like that.

    Once again, it wouldn't have been my first choice in a similar event, but one more "trick" up the sleeve in case of a Major FU.

    I kind of like those cute little claw thingies. They look like fun. It might be possible to do this move in my opinion.

    Would it be so hard to cut somebody's throat with these after a quick... and unlikely catch of the sword?
