Re: One cut...

Yeah, well, that's the part that's been bugging me. I *thought* I'd seen a version that was specifically referring to a sword cut. So the question in my head is whether there is another expression (possibly used in iai/kenjutsu circles) that is slightly different and referring specifically to cuts rather than encounters. *Or* of course whether the issue is one of translation and my really terrible Japanese skills... Which is always very likely.

Thanks, I'll keep digging myself. You are probably correct, but I have this memory of something slightly different... Argh, I hate fuzzy brain...
