Thanks Johh, for posting!
All moves are there! None are right yet!
1. Most of the time, the opposite hand should be in sword finger shape and should stretch against the sword, especially at the end of each move (fixed posture).
2. Your sword is moving all the time. It must be locked onto your hand, arm, and sometimes body. The sword appears to move because it is an extension of the torso. There should be no free movement of the sword (hand).
I will make a video illustrating these points.
