Once again, before this goes any farther, I am going to stop you right there and ask: "Did you really READ my last post?" A.) I said I don't agree with it. I ALSO said that (for better or worse) it IS a subset of Korean sword. B.) My upset is when folks such as yourself deride ALL Korean sword by citing HDGD. To make matters worse, you deride ALL HDGD based on clips of a scant few practitioners. Where is the respect or the regard in that? You seem unwilling or unable to appreciate that HDGD is not just an art, but it is also only one aspect of a much larger constellation. C.) Ergo: If you want to criticize HDGD as HDGD and limit your criticism to HDGD as a practice, have a good time. You probably won't hear anything out of me. If HOWEVER, you start making generalized statements about Korean Sword, including its very existence, I am going to say something because you are in error. HDGD is NOT the sole representation of Korean sword and to think that it is, is just plain "wrong".
