comment How does Bartitsu's “foot hook with a cane” technique work?
Thanks for stopping by. I particularly enjoy your points about bridging formal technique with sparring, as well as your parallel to koryu.

@Trevoke The technique having worked on you is not inconsistent with my analysis.

comment how to perform a reverse punch?
That's a weird distinction. What is it called when you step forward and reverse punch? What rule is broken, according to the person teaching you, that makes it not-a-reverse-punch?

comment Is there a US-based organization supporting Iaijutsu?
How mobile are you? I'm not sure it would be too helpful to find a menkyo-kaiden holder in Minnesota if you're in Florida. If your question is simply about finding a teacher I'm afraid I would have to vote to close as too localized.

Those wishing to see some of my reasoning behind my answer to @stslavik's separate question would best mosey on over to chat, particularly this.

This description fits my understanding of a parlor trick, as described in my answer.

@stslavik There's a difference between a charlatan switching to another technique and applying it brutally as punishment for making a demonstration not work (as documented, for instance, in Angry White Pyjamas), and executing renraku-waza. My point is that the technique does not work. If I said that less than clearly, perhaps you could help me rephrase.
