    Nice moves, but something tells me that`s not exactly a Hattori Hanzo sword.

    So its more or less the same thing as those majorette dancers in the US, but with a sword not a baton? gotcha.

    For the record, these are not fighting competitions. They are highly skilled swordsmanship routines using the double-edged sword and incorporating movement, timing and gymnastics.

    Squriz4Sale, I hear you. Women + swords = a combination that can`t be beat. You might also enjoy Korean Haidong Gumdo Sword Dancing. Here`s a sample ...

    @ Jake: Thanks! I enjoyed that. Never knew about Korean Haidong Gumdo sword dancing and it`s cool.

    (Still partial to the Chinese lass in this post, if anyone out there has a name or more info on her. Sheesh, I feel like Quagmire now. Giggedy.)

    im sorry, in no way is she Cosplay material. Where are the stiletto heels, the ginormous tatas, the pretty face, the sexy clothes.

    That was just some girl who plays with swords. Not the same at all

    This seems about the equivalent of being a flag girl--I was hoping to see actual swordfighting. This is still fairly cool, though.
