A man can be an artist... in anything, food, whatever. It depends on how good he is at it. Creasey's art is death. He's about to paint his masterpiece.
You have to trust in something--your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever--because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well- worn path, and that will make all the difference.

I saw this one before but in slo-mo. The kumdovj vid. In summary, the guy scooped tsuki, got under his opponents men and took it off. I heard in the old-school kendo days, that was either ippon or hansoku for the guy who lost his men.
The shimpans reaction wasnt too fast, it was right on the dot. Once that men came off, its an automatic raise flags. And look at the way he tied his men, its tied at the top, which means it'll come off if you scoope up your shinai doing the tsuki.
and then had his neck snap back like the men did? i would rather have my men pop off than hurt my neck. we got told that you should tie your men himo lose enough that you could pull your men off, of course not many people actually do this, because it is hard to get used to the not secure feeling, but after seeing that i might be tempted to. i have actually seen this happen twice though, the person always has a very surprised look on their face..
