And do you know any black belt who can really defence himself against a guy with a real sword?

This is a question we should really be trying to find an answer too. I wish the Aikido community at large would stop arguing about: magic powers, historical facts, pseudo intellectualism, pseudo spiritualism, fantasy/roll playing, and other trivial bits, and instead try and figure out if a black belt could really stop a guy with a sword. This of coarse is my wish, and of coarse the goal of stopping a man with a sword is kind of a trivial bit if you think about it.
