DON'T USE A SWORD LIKE A SABRE
A common mistake many students make is to use a sword like a saber. A saber is forceful and is often swung round the exponent's body. A sword is gentle and is never swung round the exponent's body. The movements of a saber come mostly from the shoulder, whereas those of a sword come from the wrist. A sabre is like a ferocous tiger; a sword is like a graceful dragon.
