This really isn't true if you've ever pushed a rod into something
underwater. It's not very efficient, but you're still focusing more
force against a smaller resistance than you overall body supplies
against being pushed back. I imagine this is less true with a
cutting weapon, and less true yet with something blunt (frankly, I
suspect the latter is going to be very ineffective in water at all
unless you're extremely powerful, but that's just intuition talking).
