    Kihon is in there. However it was written for a specific Ryu and although anyone can take something from the book it does have specific relevance for those studying the school founded by Musashi.

    Wow, what total trash. You can't even say all of this **** was taken from movies, because I've never seen a movie that had some of the crap that he's apparently completely made up. I'm going to address each video individually in comparison to what I know of my own style. Plasma please feel free to correct me on points that may differ depending on style.

    Video 1 :
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-i3MURnmXNw

    The grip is wrong. When holding a katana, the back of the tsuka should be against the hand. When hitting something with force, the shock of the impact will be directed at his thumb. Scratching or bending the sword isn't the biggest concern when drawing a sword, that would be cutting through the saya or your fingers. There are many ways to draw a sword, and a lot of arts practice multiple ways of doing it. The blade up method is popular because it's a fast draw and there's less chance of cutting through the saya.

    Video 2 :
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rcxdpLIpHI

    When holding the sword, your arms should be straight. Otherwise you're losing inches of range. It also will slow you down since you'll have to adjust your arms before being able to swing correctly.

    Video 3 :
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-26eWdpsZYs

    Speaking of swinging correctly, he doesn't have a clue. He's not holding the sword correctly - for power your wrists should be at a stationary angle no matter what way you're pointing the sword. His gedan kamae (low guard) is ridiculous, you can see the sword is parallel to his arm. The waki kamae (side guard) isn't even worth critiqueing.

    Video 4 :
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkm4qu_ZQNA

    Havnen't formally taken any lessons? No way! This video is a nice summary of what's wrong with all the other videos. He has no power, no technique, hasuji is for ****, no tome.

    Video 5 :
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvx01QJHVkw

    As for eliminating something useless, how about the entire series of videos. Stand still after missing? You don't have to do swordwork to realize how stupid that one is.

    You know what dude, I don't want to start an argument with you in order to defend kendo, because winning an argument on the internet is like winning the special olympics. You may be a winner, but in the end you're still retarded.

    No need to defend it to me. I'm serious I should take it up it's just finding the time *cough* and convincing the wife to let me *cough*

    I think it will help with my Kenjutsu once I've got a bit more of a grounding in it.

    Sorry if you took it as me being an arse.

    Nothing ! Looks like I should of worded that differently.

    Sorry folks thatís what I get for trying to be clever on a Monday.

    My point was that I can't seem to get away from Kendo even though I don't study it as of yet.
    I wasn't being negative about it in anyway in fact I'm dying to take it up.

    Yeah, I thought you were saying the guy was a Kendoka. He's 'self-trained'.
