    A quick clip of Russ Mitchell showing some concepts of Hungarian sabre. Non sport-oriented living lineage European sword arts are quite rare, so this particular tradition is quite important IMO.

    Very interesting. I fenced for a while in high school (foil and epee but never had a chance to do sabre, which is what I was most interested in) and that was very different. His comments about turning, the center, and a curved weapon can actually be applied to Taekwon-Do (and other unarmed martial arts), I think.

    Pax,
