How did you manage to get "run-thru" with a sword? Here is a video clip of a guy on a home shopping station with one of those cheap swords. http://www.media.ebaumsworld.com/index.php?e=katanaslip.mpg

I'm really not as concerned about you getting hurt, more the people that may be with in a few feet like friends. The way i see it, if your doing something stupid with any kind of weapon i'm not going to have any pitty on you.

well i got "run-thru" meaning i got stabbed by a sword cuz my GF's "friend" was harassing her when we went to hang out and when i told him to stop he got hella piss, we ended up fighting and he reached onto his bed grabbed what ever he could find which turned out to be his tanto ( i think it was a tanto)and stabbed me, later once i spoke to him, im not one to keep a grudge me being a nice guy, he thought he thought it was sheathed and he just ment to push me back. and i make sure no1s around me and as for the pitty bit thanx. i get to much of that anyway since the house burn down lol. but it not like i go around trying to cut down trees i just kinda act like im going to cut it then slow down a lot be for i hit it.

Yes its posible master swords men cut threw these wiered looking wooden pole things with there katana's in demonstration's i have a video of one guy doing it on my computer its pretty cool but i wouldent sugest trying it remember these are black belt's and they have very strong swords and we all know what happens if you have a cheap piece of crap sword and try to hit somthing if you watched that video of a guy on a shoping channel break one and then get stabed by the broken tip.

Define pole. If you mean a walking stick, yes, if you have a good angle and a good cut. If you mean a telephone pole, no. Swords are made for cutting soft things like flesh and bone, not hard things like wood or steel.

I think maybve what you saw was someone performing tameshigiri on a mat. It wasn't a wooden pole. If you've seen video of someone cutting a wooden pole much thicker than a couple of inches wide, I'd very much be interested in seeing it.

There are some videos at http://www.bugei.com that depict some tameshigir guys cutting big mats. If you don't know what you're looking at it could easily be mistaken for someone cutting a big pole of some kind on the grainy video. They are in fact matts that have been rolled up and tied off with string. Is this what you saw?
