Very very impressive and scary, but at least you are still human with a couple of failed cutting attempts, but 99% of your cuts seem effortless.

SCARY SCARY SCARY ..... congratulations. Surprised Eek! Big Grin Cool

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Hheheh thanks!

The single handed upward cut failed for the first time because it was not aimed to hit that high by design but I was trying to save money by hitting the top part first. :P

So in the end I just let it hit where it was meant to thus it worked.

For the next couple failed cuts, I was giving evaluation for the swords that the students used, to see if they did good enough or not by trying the same technique with the sword as they did. That showed at least they did good already with the given tools.
