The Japanese phrase katsujinken means "life giving sword" and refers to the use of a sword to preserve life.
The concept touches a dimension beyond technical skill, alone. It can be seen as decisiveness, willpower and the principal technical ability to defeat an opponent or more. One rider against 1000, is one of the metaphors that has been used to describe katsujinken.
I grew attached to the name whilst training in Ninjutsu, and used it as my pseudonym on the net. Strangely though it has slipped into my real life, I occasionally get called Katsu, Kats by close friends.
My personal feeling/reasoning behind the name:
Just because something looks like it will, it may not.
The fear, talk, hype of something does not ensure it will be what you heard.
There is a decision in everything.
Everything can lead to a positive.
It is highly unlikely that you actually understand me.
Think outside the box.
Whatever you are given, you have choices to make.
