Comments from Marleen:
1. The best match was Awatea v.s. Clement.
2. Regardless the outcome, what they did show people the spirit of 'sute-mi'.
It's 'the state of giving (something) one's all, prepared even to give up one's life. In Kendo, attempting a single blow with all one's force during a match, without thinking of the outcome. (p. 98, Japanese-English Dictionary of kendo (AJKF, 2000))'
