Heavy fighters ignore anything that doesn't arrive with enough force
to have been a killing blow with a sword. We train that way
constantly. Now if there were as much training against arrows it might
be different, but somehow I think that calling arrow shots accurately
would lead to  calling light sword blows good.  

Solution?  fight light. Light fighters are used to calling light. :)
