Eastern Martial arts (Japanese esp) have a use for it - Testing the Sword. Way different from "learning to cut". And it usually involved something other than mats.

The youtube button / embed is giving me fits right now too.....gotta look into that as well as the recent "cropped picture" issue that a couple people have voiced.
