Thread: Expert Village....

When I was at college (aged about 19/20), I spent a day carrying a live blade katana round town in a hockey bag. We went to laser quest, and shopping etc. Worst part was that I had it that day, because someone had returned it to me after I'd lost it drunk a previous evening.
It was years later before I realised how lucky I was not to get fully raped by the law. Especially here in the UK, where blade crime is a real hot topic for the police now. Even then, there had been a bit of spate of naked nutcases in samurai sword killings.
I **** myself a bit now when I think of it, but worth it for the memory: Walking across the road at dusk, wearing a Gestapo style black leather trench coat, long flowing hair, and a sword strapped to my back. Good times.
It worked too, as I'm now married to one of the girls we were with.

Ohio didnt even have regulations against most of those. Pepper spray, tasers, sap gloves(personal favorite) and batons were all legal without a permit as far as I can recall. Here in NY is another story though. You have to register when you buy pepper spray, and CHLs just dont exist unless you live in farm territory. Knives that lock(yes, that includes boring non ubertactical folders too) are illegal here, tasers and stun guns are a felony, etc. So I'm pretty sure the sword thing wouldnt fly. Then again, this is the same state where MMA is illegal, so you cant really expect much.

It's only illegal if you get caught with it, thus the "executive's sword concealed in walking stick". When you need one, you simply won't care about the law.
Anyway I thought this thread is for making fun of Expert Village. So I present a link called "how to learn judo at home".
Basically you make room in your basement, find a partner to learn kickboxing, hit a heavy bag, then look at the internet for judo. In that order."Never trust a quote you read on the internet" - Abraham Lincoln
