Short power and blade alignment training: Single handed on the end of hilt of Deva Slayer for maximum reach and weight, thus maximum difficulty. Using single leg standing, singing, for the sake of complete control without effort.

You can swing that huge sword of yours while standing on one feet? That amazes me.

Thanks for watching! Happy And even by gripping the end of the hilt only with single hand. LOL

I commend and relate with you Mr. Chan!
Although I haven't the nerve, or haven't thought before to stand on one leg when doing so, I like to warm up with my type XX longsword with single-handed drills.

Its not properly balanced for such use -along with feeling heavier when still especially, as I swing it has a strange effect.
The best way I can describe the effect is like a 'feather in the wind' or something, if that makes sense.

So it practically compels more effort in control in its swings.

If you are curious as to what sword I have exactly, its a Valiant Armoury Mercenary. You get what you pay for, and research included in the equation.
I was looking for a sword that looked like it both had some heft and could be used single and two handed, and moderately cheap. It was $175.

Thanks for your words.

Indeed, with heavy sword, wanting it to hold still is the problem. Stopping it from a cut is even a bigger problem when done with single handed on the end of hilt.

Maybe one day I will try do a test cut with single leg standing. I also train students this way because it shows how much resistant force remains inside their body. With the resistant presence, they will lose balance fast after the first couple of strikes. The only way they can keep the balance was to make themselves fluid and smooth in terms of power transfer.
