and understood how not to power swing at them, I think the legs could be a
target in single combat.
However, this is me coming from various arts where legs get swept out from
under me all the time and I regularly get hit below the shins with naginata.
It requires that you have a level of proficiency and training to do it
safely that the SCA does not, I think, require. Whether or not it should is
a debate that I really don't think I can get much support on, and I'm really
not sure if it should. However, at this point this discussion is probably
ready for a fighter list, not the Japanese list.
