Please define a swing because from what i understand yokomenuchi is basically a defense against a swing, be it empty handed or with a weapon.
Yokomenuchi starts as a sword cut from above the head, but goes in a curve to cut at an angle, instead of straight. Youtube can educate you as to the types of punches seen in fights, but they don't look like yokomenuchi.

This is why I'm interested in this kind of training, coming from someone who has been attacked enough times as a bouncer or police officer, for example, and hence why I'm interested in Sly's videos.

Aikido chat:
Naturally having something useful to say is like natural responses during training: It takes much practice.
