Not enough time today for a proper analysis of Korea v Hungary, I’m afraid. Instead, here’s an eye-wateringly fast stop cut from Szilagyi against Kim in their final at the 2014 Budapest Grand Prix. What a hit.
This has got to be about the quickest cut I’ve ever seen. Nice line set-up, too. Keep the distance wide, force the attacker to search, then BANG. Kim’s acceleration and range make his long attacks on the march formidable, and there’s not many as could pull this off. However, as previously noted, Szilagyi’s blade speed is truly insane.

Fantastic match !
Spectacular, I know. We’re incredibly lucky to have Andrew Fischl out on the circuit filming this stuff.
