Isao Machii is a legitimate badass with the katana.  Here's another vid with him doing incredible cuts.

Aloha, Poi
Is it me or is that katana forged by Hattori Hanzo? :-D

sorry I thought I had posted this one earlier instead of that movie link.   It looks like some European sword technique mirrors the stick.

That is CERTAINLY to be kept in mind!

As are the facts that
a) the people weilding those knives have been training cutting skills for many years- with the same knife most of us could not do the same thing,;
b) those that knife cannot legally be carried in many jurisdictions due to blade length and that most attack knives (speaking only SWAG here) are not as big, as sharp, etc

They do pretty massive damage with a lot of their smaller knives too.  On the order of your average "buck folder" size.  I did post the "attention getter" video, but the sidebar has a whole bunch of their other demos.   I remembered a remark you made about lack of respect when sparring with practice knives, and figured this would help with that issue.

Quite frankly I would rather be shot than cut- less trauma in my opinion.

Agreed 100% on the trauma potential of knives small too. 

I forget if I have mentioned it here on this forum, but the idea to use a hanging piece of meet in what was then a video, was my suggestion to Paul Vunak back in , , , 1985 IIRC.

Check out the Natchez Bowie in the More from column.   About 3 minutes in they have a kid doing some chopping with it- I guess they wanted to make a point that it is sharpness and not strength doing the cutting..........

I just watched the whole thing, I suggest anyone curious about what a big knife can do watch it too.   They use a whole pig carcass, so if you are squeamish you are warned.

For various reasons, the chances are that this stuff is about as irish as a bowl of lucky charms.  :lol:  Although it might have some intrinsic worth in it's own right

Bambi - Care to extrapolate re - 'various reasons' ... Obviously I have no idea what would be authentic or not, just curious what you see?
I do like the material though - changing ranges, switching hands, combinations with kicks, knees and punches .... very enjoyable.

For a start, stick fighting is no longer extant in Ireland and hasn't been in living memory to the best of my knowledge. Glenn Doyle claims his family style came over to canada with his grandfather or some such, which to me sounds implausible. Originally he claimed that his father/grandfathers' style was called "usice beatha bata rince " which sounds like someone looked up the words "whiskey", "stick" and "dance" in an irish dictionary and literally stuck them together. It appears that he has since changed the name to "rince an bheata usice bheatha" which is grammatically correct at least even if it's kinda amusing (I mean c'mon, not only did his family have a stick fighting style but they happened to name it after two of Ireland's most well known cultural exports?).  Everything about it set's my spidey sense's off.

There's a guy called Hurley who started this shillelagh renaissance off, he bases his stuff on period accounts of stick fights I believe. I'm not sure how accurate his sources are but at least he's a straight up WMA recreationist.

some of that I remember from SCA, invented from doing rather than any reference as far as I know.  I later became familiar with at least one of those names mentioned, although I haven't done much more than look at the pretty pictures.  SCA is sword and shield stuff, so some of those simple disarms wher the hand comes out for a pivot work with a shield. 

The old movie "Excalibur" with the shiny plate armor, had some of these moves too, I wonder.........

Yes, it is cool to see new illusions. Some years ago, The Masked Magician came out with a series of specials, Magic's Greatest Secrets Revealed (or something similarly titled) and glad to see that "magic" is not dead and stagnating.
