Some of these look WAY too much fun. Like the moving target.

I would screw up all of that. :) It looks really awesome, and I'm impressed. Tatami can be rather unforgiving if you don't have good edge alignment or execute your swing well.

Nice video footage. Most deliver well-placed and very fluent cutting motions on target. It obviously shows.

Sir Edward, Teach me that move the first guy was using next time I make it out to a Demo  ;D
Also, I actually have been practicing the move the second guy was doing on my pell+ the basic stance and hit, and positions. Just like most of my History memory, I remember none of those position names
