hey, i have learned how to do reverse grip drawing and noto from watching Zatoichi. although, i almost changed my religion with my unsharpen iaito. it was a close call!
old Zatoichi or new?
Hey, what self-respecting sword student hasn't tried the left-handed draw from Sanjuro?
Zatoichi, I like both old and new. Takeshi "Beat" Kitano is an extremely talented artist and his Zatoichi re-imagining is pretty good if eccentric and often surreal.
And iaito are pointy, they can hurt!
