Ya, good idea ill stay on topic, but i just no i got a fellow APC fan, so when i quote him, dont say anything Oo ok so energy and swordplay....
these are two good combinations :elephant:

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
 -J.R.R. Tolkien

now dd and def. did a good job as a basics...

but there is a lot more...especially if your going in for more occult exercises

now those exercises require a bit of time and usually that you have a specific weapon (tho also a lot of occult sword play requires using a specific weapon as well)

how ever there are ways of using energy in swordplay...obviously applicable to other martial arts as well...

any half decent warrior should be able to attune to any weapon that he has trained with in a quick space of time...the idea being that the weapon become as part of your body...not just an energetic concept

whilst fighting you can use your own energy to do things...you can add energy to strikes and to defences...you can even take energy from repeated attacks from opponent and then counter attack with that build up of energy rather than use your own

you can reap energy from an opponent and his attacks

you can cause slow leaks in energy from your opponent

as to the more occult practices...you can imbue the weapon with its own spirit/soul/personality...or bless it through a deity/demonic entity

you can raise energy through the earth or from deities for yourself

so these are some more ideas
however im not going into the details of how to do these things...

since i would only teach these things personally...duty of care etc

this also implies that you would have some reasonable level of skill in weilding such weapon

play with weapons at your own risk...i take no responsibility for playing with above ideas

oh and i gorgot something...ive just added this bit....as to the use of the scabbard....well go and look at the myths of arthur and excalibur...it was excaliburs scabbard that held the magic which prevented the wearer from bleeding to death from any wound...note that the scabbard was enchanted by morgaine and was actually stolen from arthur before his final battle...

and if you look into arts such as ninjutsu the scabbard was a very useful tool...u didnt always remove the blade from the scabbard to fight

also the difference between metal and wood weapons...arguments for both
i have kids so sharp steel swords tend to be a bad idea...just a family safety issue
however steel is a metal and metal conducts electricity and energy where wood stores it...
metal is more open to being controlled (ie you forge it with fire physical and mental) where wood is worked "with"

wood and steel weapons are no better or worse than the other...it is the way that a weapon is weilded

Just a question but, do you people get in sword fights often? :confused:
