    I think it is that, but with a Japanese flavor.

    What can I say? Beginners' luck.

    I think he went easy on me too, it was for fun and we didn't use any protective gear. They're nice guys. And I didn't even know what the rules were.

    But I don't know it seemed to me more like a game than martial arts, that's why I'm asking about it. Kendo seems much more serious.

    Yes, I found the reference in my translation. It simply says, "wakizashi." Ah, to be able to read primary sources...

    I'm not even going to dignify that with a facepalm picture.

    Well the mechanics with a shinai are definitely different, but as kendo people progress it gets to be more like a real sword fight. The old guys don't win because they are faster than you, or because they are whipping the shinai around in some unrealistic manner. They win because they break your posture with the pressure they bring to bear, and then hit easily. "Win, then cut" is the goal. That applies whether you are holding shinai or shinken. The 67 year old hanshi hachidan we brought in for a seminar last week was teaching us all these principles, and then demonstrated them in action with a match against another hachidan, easily cutting the other guy with large motions that would work just fine with steel.
    Thank you for the explanation. I'm not entirely sure whether you're lumping me in with the "idiocy" or not.
