Yuhk Geum Hyung: Reverse Sword Pattern.

Straight or reversed sword, it depends on how you hold the sword, and it's got nothing to do with the sword itself. It is called reversed sword because the holders hands are reversed or rather upside-down to the relation of the hand guard. The practitioner holds the sword with his/her pinky touching the hand guard, instead of their thumb and index finger touching it. Reversed sword techniques are used for close combat situations. The reverse sword techniques requires alot of spinning of the body to generate speed that translates into cutting power.
