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

Japanese Sword Master - AkihabaraNews.com

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.

Seavac has been researching the conventional coating technologies using TiN, Ti-Al, and CrN, and developed ZERO-I, a new coating that combines the advantages of all three.

"The hardness is about 3,500 HV. This coating is heat-resistant to over 1,000 degrees. Conventional Ti-Al coatings were heat-resistant to nearly 900 degrees, but this coating has even better heat resistance, and hardness as well."

Promising Return to Form for a Former Industry Heavyweight  

At Keio University, the Sugiura Laboratory, in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (Faculty of Science and Technology) is investigating various phenomena through analysis and experiment. These phenomena involve coupling between electromagnetics and mechanical dynamics, as well as nonlinear dynamics. Currently, the researchers are focusing on three topics. The first is nonlinear oscillations in superconductive magnetic suspension systems. In such systems, objects are levitated, so energy loss due to friction is very low.
