After-class logic on one of the biggest failures of edged weapons training : The Mutual Destruction.
It plagues the tactical and self-defense world, as well as the Filipino martial arts, because of the lack of understanding (and instruction) of context, training methods and tactics.
Here's the Bottom Line:
Mutual Destructions take absolutely no instruction, training or skill to perform. If you train and spar within an edged or impact weapon system or course and the way you "fight" looks completely different than the drills (eg. cooperating opponents or constantly clashing) with no solution of how to tactically engage the opponent in real-time (in any context), it's time for a change.
More details on this subject in a future Part 2 (and how to avoid it).
