Attack Sword Master: No Defensive Moves - Because Attack!! (VIDEO)
If You’re Too Busy Destroying Everything, You Don’t Need Defense

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.
