Attack Sword Master: No Defensive Moves - Because Attack!! (VIDEO)

Japanese Sword Master -

If You’re Too Busy Destroying Everything, You Don’t Need Defense

...Is the rather surprising sentiment conveyed by Japanese sword master Hiroharu Wada, profiled in this video from Vice Japan.

The declaration that he's too hardcore with the offense to bother with protecting himself, a fascinatingly brazen bit of humblebraggery from an otherwise reserved practitioner of Jigen-Ryu Japanese sword fighting, is a damn intimidating thing to hear from an elderly man with a 450-year-old sword - in this case, precisely because he’s elderly and has a 450-year-old sword.

That’s before you even get into the whole: 

“Draw and behead; One Shot, One Kill”

...which is their mantra, along with casual discussion of quick and efficient disembowelment.

All snark aside, some pretty fascinating viewing, this.
