    "the proper way to hold a samurai sword along with gripping"
    A martial artist/fight choreographer buddy once told me, after thumbing through one of my Buscema-drawn Conan comics, that there is no sword tradition which uses a batter's grip, that is, a two-handed grip with both hands touching.

    Thanks for the link...will definitely come in handy.

    Question though:

    Can someone explain how this is considered good composition (as far as balance is concerned):

    Useful threads I created

    Or is this simply a case of, "This artist does know what he's doing (judging by his other work), so he is allowed to break the rules at times."
