Re: Steven Seagal's sword work
My take on this is, "So what?" Is anybody really that good that they can go their entire life and never get beaten? This is typically a hallmark of non-competitors.
Every time you compete, there's X% chance that you'll win and X% chance that you'll lose. Look at some of these UFC champs- In order to be the winner, you have to constantly be at the pinnacle of your training or you'll get beaten by someone who is.
