Love your expression of sadness and doubt here. Whoever's on the other end of that sword is either a family member, not-quite-ex-lover, or someone else you really care about

Armor is useless if you dont know how to fight without it + when you have a edged blade you dont hit armored part its stupid and useless.
The best technique to fight someone wearing armor is To hit him with punch and kick to surprise him and to go in is back and break is defence by hitting is back (Pretty useful for a lot of stuff Avoiding mad girlfriend , avoiding your boss and avoiding an angry mob.
Anyway its just theory dont kill people and say ; Hey its that guy on Deviant who say how to kill people wearing armor ;D 
Its just common sense in fighting the goal is not win but survive and to do that you have to be creative and deadly its better to be a murderer than to be dead ( stuff that my old sensei told me he is the crazy one not me specialy when he gave me the beating and says ; Dont worry its wooden sword and you are protected so dont worry till now my back remember the bruise and stuff I call that Pain memory because its hurted a lot.

Now just gotta add the armor (no helmet needed) and gore to make her from a angelic woman to a über badass angelic woman

WOOOOW I like the art of susan coffey BUT sometime it pisse me off that people use katana for cosplay movie and picture for GOD sake its weapon with history I am sure they are a lot people who dont understand that a weapon is the extension of the user Soul.

Anyway for people who know about kenjutsu the ancient form of samurai and ninja swordmanship.

We are not many to practice it because the essence of kentjutsu is to kill one strike one death nothing more its like other martial arts they are no art only Truth in the will to strike and the result.

Its weird but as my sensei told me its beautiful because its simple like the wind.

In kenjutsu you dont lie about who you are or your sword will become a weight at that weight will bring your end its truly beautiful.

Its why this picture of susan coffey is amazing when people really strong with a blade fight each other they are not hate no feeling just the need to make your sword sing.

Second thing this stance is well chosen because you can only attack like not defend not dodge its the purest form of attack : only the edge of sword strike a echo of victory of defeat a begining or an end.

Lol its the ultimate stance because it very honest and show a person real soul.

Maybe that picture remind of me of my training or those Japanese etchings  that my master use to add in his house ;D .

Its make me thing of old stuff he says after beat me up :

Look beyond yourself and your soul and your sword will sing for you to keep you safe be like steel feel it embrace it 

Anyway i like that shot ;D
