I was thinking of writing on the difference between different nations’ cultural mesoiras, accomplishments and focus, but I won’t. It seems obvious. Vdal.
There is something to be said for being small and flexible — like a palm tree that can withstand a storm vs. a cypress that will fall.
Being 190 cm (6'3") tall, however, I don’t think I can pull this off (I had problems while fencing too; if somebody got “within” my reach and I didn’t retreat fast enough, it was difficult for me to parry — a disadvantage balancing or even outweighing a benefit of longer reach). So, I’ll have to settle for a gun.
I wonder if this guy’s poking fun at his opponents actually hurts more than his physical abuse of them.
