I would like to talk about swordfighting and attitudes. You should have a good attitude while fighting, do not fight out of rage of a hit, loss or anything else, for it does no good. You should have a good attitude, even though you know you are going against a formidible opponent and probably will lose, for a better attitude will improve your fighting. Do you think if you have a attitude of "I am going to lose" will help you fight? I think not. If someone makes a hit and causes you pain, most of the time it is an accident. DONT take on a attitude of "I am going to get back at him for that". That is not what you should do.
