Stills are good but videos are very good.
...but stills are better than nothing, eh
I anticipated this question though am surprised it comes from an Ilustrisimo student.
This is live blade work with both guys having the blade. I have some of this on video (and to me it still looks good) but given it is live blade and "Impromptu" you can understand why stills are favored as opposed to videos. That was also the request of Maestro Yuli. This was actually done in a hotel room on the spur of the moment and I have removed the background.
If you would like to see rehearsed live sword play check this video out:
I haven't seen Mang Yuli for years. I'm sure he has some tricks I haven't seen yet.
Impromptu live blade demo can still be done safely but it might lack the flair of stick demo since with live blades in hands, everything will be clearly visible. I like to see FMAers wield a real blade since it tells a lot about the person and his skills.
Thanks for the link, btw.
You're welcome Raul
