Smashing two weapons together at full force...is just plain useless.
It might be Aikido, but it has not one thing to do with weapons and contrary to what you wrote...it has not one thing to do with dealing with a sharp weapon!
And again contrary to what you wrote...that mindset is more in line with kendo than weapons.
Hip hip hooray!! I agree with you here.Could there by chance we are drawing closer in respect of a common viewpoint?Answers on a 100$ bill , please . Cheers, Joe.
