"It was understood that there was a winner and a dead man. Which makes my approach to training totally different if I'm going to die. It's impossible for you to train the same way, I don't care how much you practice, I don't care how sharp your sword is or what famous smith made it. If you go into a sword fight for points, you'll never obtain what I'm obtaining with a dull sword against somebody that's going to die." - Virgil Hunter
