Bear in mind that the destructive tests you see on SBG are NOT endorsements to use a sword in the same manner...
Personally, my sword technique is quite poor, but I ALWAYS pay very careful attention to blade alignment, as a poorly aligned cut can potentially break even the strongest sword (steel is steel after all) - so when in doubt, do NOT push your sword to it's limits - leave that to crazy people like me... (i.e. DO NOT DO THIS AT HOME!!)
