I say what will be, as it will happen in the future. In the new Star Trek movie, Kirk asks Sulu what his style of advanced hand to hand combat is. He reply's "fencing". Than he pulls out a foldable sword that looks more like a Japanese samurai sword, nothing like the type you see in western style fencing to be sure. I know almost nothing about sword fighting, but I'm curious as to what style Sulu will eventually fight in. Also, do they really make foldable swords like that, or is it only for the movie? How good was Sulu's sword fighting or "fencing"? Would you say it was advanced? I was certainly impressed with his kick to the stomach in the fight scene.
