If Jesus and Santa Claus fought to the death in an empty swimming pool, who'd win?

Why not use the term "counter-offensive"?

But the Kukishin/Shinden Fudo/Togakure style swords that were available up until a few years ago were made out of steel, weren't they?

Does anyone know just how authentic the manufacture methods for the Paul Chen swords are? In the new book "Exploring the Essence of the Martial Arts" I recall having read Someya sensei state that most Chinese made swords aren't properly tempered.

I had read a good bit of what he had written on his web page when in the autumn of 2002 I really "understood" what he was trying to put across. Me and another member of my dojo were doing some light freeflow/sparring with bo vs katana, all in good fun of course. Anyhow, I was the one with the katana. Things kind of went along the lines of what he refers to as a "back and forth chess game", much like any sparring match in contact sports. I kept hanging back, trying to control my distance all the while waiting for the perfect opportunity to arise.
The problem was, all it resulted in was bruises and cracked hands and feet on my part.

That's when I realized the drastically different mindset and strategy required for self defense and/or combat rather than "fighting". If you attempt to hang back until it's safe to enter, you will actually suffer more damage than if you close in with the intention of ending it all as soon as possible. I also found a way to put into words what I had suspected for a long time - that real world confrontations bear no resemblance to two contestants squaring off and attempting to beat each other up under mutually agreed upon rules and regulations. Actual encounters such as those Animal speaks of are up-close, in your face, at ramming speed, not like a kickboxing match where you both just stand there exchanging blows with one another.
"There is no room for a sparring mentality when just being touched will harm you. And being touched multiple times will kill you."

And merry christmas everyone, by the way.

I merely opposed the idea that everything custom made is automatically better than everything mass produced. Come to think of it, generally I prefer Acqua di Gio over home-made deodorants as well ...though I'm sure Xtracted knows what he's talking about when it comes to yoroi.
