    I'll say something, I finally held a rattan Kali stick this weekend. Previously I had only held a Bokken or Shinai I understand the dogbrothers a little better now the light rattan ones are toys compared to a bokken. I've wondered for awhile how that Kali sparing is possible but I had a really false impression of the stick weight and density.

    Still you are teh retarded ;)

    My point?

    That Emevas is retarded ;)
    and
    Kali sparring is noat as scary as I thoguht because the sticks are WAY lighter and softer(less dense) than I previously thought. I had been imagining a short Bokken.

    In kenjutsu we use bokken/bukuto and we do NOT use ANY protective gear ( thats for those kendo pussies).
    We do NOT engage in "freestyle" sparring or full contact, why?
    Because in the hands of someone who KNOWS how to use a bokken, someone would end up dead.
    And THAT is the lesson that you shoudl learn about weapons, unlike H2H, one mistake makes you worm food and plant fertilizer.

    well i give you a "you got balls salute". i know a lot of people here are giving you **** for being so crazy to go up against a guy with bokkans but well...someone had to do it haha.

    i can't really say anything bad to you as i got my ass kicked in a pillow fight and i started crying.

    learned????? the only thing you learned is that either your friends' backyard two-swordstyle sucks, or that he really likes you and don't want you to be in the hospital. I wonder why he didn't use normal twohanded strikes, but you should prolly consider yourself lucky he didn't. Believe me or better yet believe ronin a real strike from a bokken would lead to a whole lot more damage as in broken ribs, wrists cracked skull etc.
    Were those bokkens from wood, looking to the wounds you have I would think they were made out of plastic.
    Furthermore a bokken isn't a weapon in itself (thought it could be pretty effective on it's own) I believe it's just a tool to learn how to wield a sword so you can't go gripping it on the blade portion.
    If a shinai can give you a bruise through a protected forearm, a bokken would just brake it.

    Did someone say "tool"?
    I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn
