    I know you were, and I know NeilG was kidding, so I kid back.

    Let's not forget once upon a time the Chinese chopped the Japanese to little bits with the Great Knife, which is why it's called the "General of Weapons".

    It's hard not to love the Great Knife it's one of the biggest damn broadswords you can actually wield in one hand.

    The Great Knife is not so great when taught in the park by a yahoo to a bunch of other yahoos.

    They didn't even add sound effects or real saber techniques, from what I can tell.

    For comparison, this one has sound effects and real "great knife" techniques. Very similar to the Hung ga moon flowing knife forms (Hang Yuet Dahn Do).

    Most people suck. Whether it be fighting, driving, thinking...

    That's why the "cool head" part is so important. It'll save your life.

    I've seen these kinds of videos of one guy vs multiple attackers from Turkey, China, and yes, even the US.



    Omega's simple routine is the tactic. Hit and run....stick and move.
    Nice video (and boxing skillz), I just love how they keep dropping.

    But I wasn't very clear on my statement, I was trying to say that, some people BELIEVE they can drop alot of people by using some MA and be some kind of Jackie Chan/Bruce Lee or w/e using it's Kung Fu and wash away people.

    I get your logic and it's pretty useful, but as you said, you probally are experienced in Boxing or some MA and keeping your head cool, but as a newbie it is highly discouraged.
