Agreed. Maybe consider that you seem to receive impolite responses here more than anyone else? Why is that?

I never left the topic. My original advice holds true for any type of martial art, whether armed or unarmed or armoured or unarmoured. Without fencing/sparring it is just LARPing.


You have no idea what my 'stance' is. If you engaged in productive conversation you might have. Instead you did what you've done for the couple of years you've been on the forum - blundered into a topic you clearly have very little understanding of and proclaimed your own authority.

My original assessment holds true - you have no idea what you'r talking about. Like Wiesiek - I'd advise you to actually go and learn some real swordsmanship.. but I understand you've already invented your own superior art over the past year. If you think studying an historical sword art is 'LARPing', I wonder what playing tapi-tap with foam sticks is? Children's playground games?

Invented my own art? Tappy tap? Wow.. You are seriously delusional. Anyways, if you don't fence it is LARPing. If that's your cup of tea, have at it. Productive conversation? You have been nothing but elitist about your Japanese art since the beginning and shitting on my art. Some people on this forum are impolite because they can't possibly confront reality. My advice to Wiesiek is to fence/spar. I never proclaimed any other authority. Over the past several years I have fenced more than most will in their lives. I did so every day for hours with a proper master - a living tradition. Even now I fence for three hours straight once a week. I can guarantee you that if we were to cross blades with real swords I'd be far better prepared than you would be. Or sticks. Or baseball bats. Or golf clubs. Or canes. You will never understand the nuances of combat without fencing at full speed/contact. NEVER.

Maarten, now after having your own sword/fencing school/style and being a master of it have you entered any competition yet ? I would think if one is doing it all just for the combat sake, entering fight competitions would be the proofing of ones combat skill in today’s world, at least that’s what many think ?

No further questions needed, he is terrible

geat,
really, thank you jaime
now i know /theoretically so far /, why any of contemporary swords Master/s/ didn`t try Kim`s ability /after semi-official 1st try in real /,
and
from now on, Kim is The Master Kim in my mind...

-bow-

when I will try his h2h combat approach I will dare to comment more.

explanation:
during my over 50 years of MA trainings/quest I was moped more than once by different style/s/ teachers and Masters,
but
always after some short or longer struggles, however only twice in my life I experienced something extraordinary:
1st time it was meting with Soe San Nim
2nd time with my Master Tenga Rinpoche

best

I would like to at some point. There's not much around here. I fenced with a local HEMA instructor with 8 years of Olympic fencing and 8 years of HEMA experience and did very well, despite not having trained for over three months and out of shape. With regular training and fencing I'm now back up to and beyond the level I was when I graduated in China. i
I want to go back one of these days, but I'm too busy with work.

Yesterday I`ve been introduced to the "unfolding hands" technique.
`cause it is base of the system I would like to report it.
Suppose, that everybody remember CXW demo when he is resisting wrestler and crowd "push/pressing,
and he seems to be >unmovable<.
I don`t know how technique used is named in TJ, but in KUDK is called "unfolding hands".
How you do it?
Quite simple - by spreading qi from the DT thru the whole body... :)
anyway, for using it in "real live" I need some more practice.
