Thanks so much powerkicker! I'm glad to hear your thoughts.
In reality, I actually happen to get far more practice in free sparring and parrying drills than formal kata work.
Upon re-watching the blade-work I see that my line of vision appears to be in the general direction I am striking, with a heavy use of peripherals, no? I have always found that it is best to view one's opponent as part of a cardinal direction, North, South, East, West, and diagonals, this assures that one does not telegraph where one is going to strike, or whether the opponents strike has been perceived, and also allows the eyes a wide enough image to watch both sides of an opponents body, wanto, and yoko. That being said I plan on experimenting with adjusting certain techniques for the camera.
I'm always glad to talk shop with a fellow warrior
