That wasn't bad actually.
Although I would be reluctant to play with swords so close to the sea.
I beg to differ It was just.....Uuuurrrrrrgggghh
It was very bad, usage of parlour tricks, instead of solid principles used in combat mixed with rather bad maai & hyōshi. Lucky for them that it was done slowly and not at full pelt.
Yeah, I'm with Steve... I actually sent that clip to a student of mine as an example of "what NOT to do", with the description of "this isn't swordsmanship, it's just frankly embarrassing".
Thanks for bringing that one up again, Steve.... gotta go lie down again now before my nightly (PROPER!) Kenjutsu training.
But while I'm here, let's round it out, shall we?

What is wrong with these people, they seems to practice the twirls more than the swordsmanship.
Don't you see bear? It is hidden techniques. When the demons and the voices in your head appear you blow them away with a twirl!
Steve.... that was unnecessary, man. I expect such things in the "Bad Ninjutsu Videos" thread, but here? I thought we were ignoring such obvious, uh, deficiancies.... such as health, fitness, education....
Seriously, that was brutal. I don't even want to try to top it.
Topping that is easy, just call in Ashida Kim!
Hey, I didn't say I couldn't top it, just that I didn't want to...
But if we're scraping that end of the barrel, here's an interesting series for you:

Oh, if only there were enough faces and enough palms for some of the things I've come across....
It's like watching a video of a huge freeway accident. You think to yourself "How sad! How terrible! I can't stand to watch this!" but you watch anyway. Well, I watched a little. Couldn't take too much of those or I start feeling nauseous.
These Jedi are pretty good.

Are you serious here? This thread is for BAD examples of swordsmanship, this is an (rotoscoped and thereby altered) example of Tenshinsho Den Katori Shinto Ryu, and is an incredibly good example of their Gogyo no Tachi.
You are just here to make trouble, yeah? What with you saying that Mosche Kastiel stuff was good....

No carnage until we know he's for real.
Hmm, maybe... if he's for real, he's demonstrated a complete lack of knowledge of martial arts, especially for someone who's been around for 17+ years (Kendo), yet is more than happy to put across his very wrong ideas as facts and corrections (spear and staff being the same thing, sai not being a real weapon, etc). If he's not for real, then it's all just trolling. In either case, why no carnage? He's obviously old enough to take responsibility for his posts, yeah?
Just asking, you understand....
Give him enough rope......

I approve. 'nuff said.
I think it's poor typing skills and should have said Sick rather than Six.
I also think the upside-down sword is a really nice touch.
Menkyo F'n Kaiden!
