    Great music.

    Why anyone would add music to a martial arts demonstration video...

    I thought the form was kinda weak too, but i suppose anything trained right can be a martial technique.

    The geezers to talk to for this kinda stuff are the Kendo boys, or the Silat / Kali Boys.

    All very well learning a form, but actually putting it into practice is another thing.

    And since its generally frowned upon to go round slicing people up, whats the point?

    Tradition i guess, or showing off.

    I can't use a sword myself, so i can't comment on whether this is a good or bad demo.

    Nor do i see the point in training to use one, as i don't carry one with me.

    its not the form itself although i didnt like it, kinda looks made up but it could be real because of the way it starts-finishes.

    but his form sucks. not what hes doing..how hes doing it, its bad.

    and im surprised u dont practice with weapons, ive never heard a gung fu person say that...ever lol.

    even the wushu guys use weapons...

    Yeah we use sticks and stuff occasionally.

    And there is a fair bit of Knife work. But apart from that its seen as pretty much a waste of time.

    My angle is, we do knife work, because its possible that someone might pull a knife on you. I can't ever remember hearing of someone being attacked in a bar with a sword, or a rope dart or something equally as silly.

    And conversely, i have never wanted to carry a sword or any weapon in a public place, so why would i want to train with one?

    Bar fights are usually where your most likely to use your training, so it stands to reason that you are most likely to get hit with Pool ques, knives and bottles.

    The Wu Shu guys are awesome, can't deny that.

    BUT....... honestly, where are you going to use something like a butterfly kick? You can't, not really. Equally the same applies with weapons.
    They look amazing, but you can't use them, its very much illegal.

    Actually, you just reminded me, my mate in whos living in Thailand got mugged.

    So he bought a sword, and the fun and games began.

    But still, im not in Thailand, and in Europe its mostly safe to walk about.
