Also, it's worth pointing out that any advantage a katana has against a ninja-to, a nodachi has against a katana.

I personally belive in throwing knives are actually better, a combination of everything you could want, a good ccw and a projectile weapon roled into one and with skill deadly accurate.

I still like my soul sword though there's something about a sword that contains half your spirit that makes you want to look after it.

I have already tried this attempt,and they are as fast as I am for the most part.A couple of times I was actually able to roll around them as they were occupied with attacking me and hit them in the back for an instant kill.But the people I have fought against,2 of them have very good blocking and parrying ablilities,and 1 of those 2 is an excellent swordsman by any standards.Like Miyamoto Musashi,he does not cling to any certain style,but simply his style is to win.Last match I had with him though it was very close.We were tied 2-2 in the last round and he hit me just as I was about to hit him.But for the most part,the tactics which you speak of are good all around,except when they are as fast or mobile as you are.That is when strategy must come into play,and to he who can make his opponent commit to an anticipated strike will win the stand-off.That is what I think.
