Re: Live tanto in grading

Having personally witnessed two different incidents involving wooden blades and eyes -- thankfully with no long-term consequences in either case -- in which the weapon was being wielded by a very senior and very capable practitioner, I would go so far as to say that any notion that a senior student's skill is sufficient insurance against a junior student's lacks is a very good precondition for a very bad injury.

Best,
