  • A Grande Arte

    I was never much of a 'knife guy'. In fact, I'm quite leery of the prospect of using a knife or facing a knife in a self-defense situation.



    But after watching this movie, it really changed my mind. Now I've a couple of folding knives that I alternately carry around.

    Hope you guys enjoy it. It's a really rare movie, made in Brazil (although there're American, British and French actors involved). It's available on low-grade DVD and rapidshare though. The whole movie is actually even better, with a real story line, good directing, good acting, and good visuals.

    Interesting, those are the same cuts used with a katana -

    Tate ichimonji - straight down
    Kesagiri - diagonal
    Yoko ichimonji - side to side
    Gyakugesa - upward diagonal or nearly straight up, groin to collarbone

      I wouldn't be surprised at all. I've seen some medieval and renaissance era manuals, and there's some interesting diagrams that showed the eight cardinal directions of attacks, just like what Hermes drew on the mirror.
