There was an old saying that to perform on the stage for a minute takes 10 years off-stage of practice. Usually I share videos of sparring and test cut. Those are "on stage" videos where I put the techniques to test. In this video, I showed my "off stage" practice, which actually takes up most of the training proportion. During the practice I would experiment with the techniques and try to improve them. I was practicing cutting with hip movement only, using Longship Armoury 1095 DS Dadao at 4.75lbs and Longship Armoury 5160H Giant Silvia at 56" sword. In addition, I was trying to cut at the camera so I can verify my blade alignment on screen. If my blade alignment is correct, the sword would become a slim straight line passing through the screen center. It seems I did ok.
