3. And all those twirls if you must know, are two things, one.. to move me into the next position to strike quickly, ie. id cut off your legs when u think my swords heading for your face!, and two, its part of a meditation i use to strengthen and de-stress myself.. ps. you kill someone with a sword now a days u go to prison for the rest of your like, so i make it look good instead.. what the f--k is wrong with that... our art is called kenVert not Kenjutsu so f--k OFF!!!




Some how you don't sound very "destressed" right now

P.S. It still says Kenjutsu on your videos

just wait till someone attempts one of his pretty moves and cuts an artery. I bet he will change his mind when he is in court attempting to explain his "online school".

As I said in the video posting (im sure hes gonna delete it soon) This is showmanship, not swordsmanship.

That's the sad scary truth of the matter. Someone sooner or later is gonna get seriously hurt doing stuff they see in this guy's video. Maybe even the guy in the video Even sadder is that I don't think there's any real point in posting negative comments on the guys video. It's dangerous to himself and others, especially since he is advocating it as something he could teach to others, but at least he is not claiming it is kenjutsu, or anything other than something he made up to look cool. Posting negative comments on his thread won't really help aleviate the danger. It'll just tick the guy off.

Speedy if you feel you must pursue this guy, don't do it here. He is not a member of this forum and has no way to respond. You've made your point. If you want to make it further, I'd suggest taking it over to the baffling budo forum at http;//www.e-budo.com

Believe it or not, he is on this forum and on kendo-world.com. In fact he's messaged me about these threads. Of course he won't post on this since then everyone would know who on this forum he is.

As for e-budo... IP ban.

The guy obviously has a love for cinematics - you can tell that just from some of the other videos he's created. Also he seems quite a talented individual (I'm, talking about in general here, so don't flame me about the sword twirling!)

As I see it he's just doing what certain martial artists have been doing for many years and emphasising the 'Art' side of things. I'll be the first to admit that this is not a true representation of the martial arts themselves, but through movies it's the side we all have the most exposure to. Carry on like that and he could well have a career as a fight scene choreographer!

Hmmmm...the 'someone might hurt themselves' argument again. Sorry, I know you mean well but I just can't accept that. I'm sick of the nanny state and litigation society. If you're a 'responsible' adult and you want to play with sharp swords and you don't realise how dangerous thay are then the world would be better off without your gene's in it! I fully accept kids do not have this protective layer, but if they have access to swords then that's a question for the parents to answer. Bear in mind I'm speaking as the father of 3 kids - two of which automatically turn any long, hard object into a weapon at any opportunity!

(sorry, I'm ranting now and this is aimed at society in general, not just MA - apologies)

And don't get all upset, I'm just balancing out the argument a little - playing devils advocate if you like. Remember, it's you that brought him into the forum and tore a strip or two off. He didn't ask to be taken seriously by you.

What's my argument? I think I forgot somewhere in this post, but I just tend to like anyone that adds interest to life! The world needs more risk-takers and eccentrics. After all, where would the world be without Evil Knieval?!?

No, honest, nothing to do with me guv. True, he's based in the UK but that's about as close as we've ever come. First I knew of him was when you posted the link.

Not sure what else I can do to prove it. You can see that I haven't posted much and apparently he's been around for a while. I think if you read my posts it would be quite obvious I'm not him. Three kids? He's a kid himself so I doubt he has any!

Speedy

If the guy hates the internet so much--and he actually SAYS.

"I really hate the internet"

Then why the heck did HE take the time to POST THEM THERE?

So he puts stuff on line that people think is a joke--and that the nets fault?

The ball stops with HIM.

People don't like the tough questions and comments they get in public?

THEN KEEP YOUR "TRAINING" PRIVATE!

Pretty simple concept.

Having the nerve to get pissy with people about HIS OWN ACTIONS make him a major tool.
