I'm almost sure that there were more posts in this thread before Dot' posted, it's not like Jacques to give up on a disagreement without being more offensive...maybe he's grown up now anyway. :>

Is it along the lines of pushing the saya forward some then pulling it back while drawing the blade?

bobO,
There is a reason, why not to divulge certain information on the Internet,
You are going to cause someone to get hurt attempting something they don't understand or are trained properly to do.
It takes people who trained a long time (I'm talking blackbelts, not students)to understand the principles involved here.
Mick, a video wouldn't help, you still wouldn't know what you are looking at. It has to do with feel and understanding of your weapon. Besides you probably already seen videos of them doing what Bob is talking about on the Internet and didn't recognise it.
Besides BobO is not going to be doing a video of it anyway, right Bob?

People whos have been properly trained (initiated into the weapon arts) will recognise others also similarly trained. If by only sometimes how they hold the sword or any particular weapon or the stance they use. When Bob seen that picture, he immediately knew how that individual would draw that sword. because he had been trained properly.
Bob with knowledge comes responsibility!
I know you're exuberant about us being here, calm down, remember where you are and who you are now.
