This was awful.

Im dead, I shot my self watching this.
Im a ghost now,,,,Damn you.

it only works against an opponent with ultra slow reaction, as soon as you try to cut his hand, you would realize there is nothing stopping his blade from reaching your body or knock your sword out of the center line of attack.

Those strikes actually work. They're risky sure, but they do work if your opponent doesn't expect a cheap shot. The strike is fast, and difficult to wind away from, as it is already on the inside. The problem though, is that as you spotted, the strike leaves him inside as well, which usually results in a double kill, or as we in House Darksun call it, Two Dead Idiots. Much of combat is dependant on strategy, the idea is to put yourself and your opponent in such a position as you can hit him but he can't hit you. This is difficult with boffers because they don't have cuillons which catch the opponents blade. But on the flip ide it is hat mles this attack so successful.

God damn! plz someone kill this guy!!! chop hes arm off and told him Grenades works fine

When facing multiple opponents, like you stated, you really should think about energy expenditure, multiple strikes where one will do, is inefficient. in your tutorial when you had hold of his arm, a quick stroke across the throat, or belly would have sufficed. Remember you still have to face those other opponents, and your weapon is getting heavier with every strike. Other than that a very good tutorial.
