    However, the Office of the Imperial Household has told The Japan Times that it has no practice or system of granting such titles.

    The samurai class ceased to exist 130 years ago, with the abolition of Japan's feudal system at the end of the Tokugawa Shogunate in 1868.
    End of discussion. This should have been the only four lines of the entire article.

    "When these things happen, you think to yourself, I could tweak a nerve and render you unconscious within a tenth of a second, but they don't know that.
    And he runs a successful production company in the U.K. with wife, Yvette. The company currently makes popular cable TV show "Most Haunted," in which Yvette travels around Britain attempting to prove the existence of ghosts.
    And "chanbara," a form of samurai combat involving foam swords that was invented in Japan 30 years ago, has become the latest fitness fad among the health conscious in Britain and the U.S.
    lol LARP. Regardless, chanbara is a fucking film genre.

    Quote: "Beattie, who has studied martial arts since age seven, says he was awarded the honorary title after becoming the first non-Japanese to become World Traditional Full Contact Martial Arts Champion. And in order to become a samurai, he says he was adopted into the family of his martial arts teacher. " End quote.

    Now what in the Nine Worlds is that? Must be pretty important competition, in they grant, what could be compared to knighting (sp?) someone. One of those über-secret tournaments nobody ever hears about, I guess. Ryukyu Kempo 4th dan. Isnīt that Dillmanīs style? :confused5

    That's not his helmet, it's an example of an awesome helmet I found. One of my favorites.

    Anyway, it's a shrimp.

    Are shrimps some sort of Japanese diety now?

    why would I want one the weakest of all animals on my helmet? To signify how I'm going to get beaten down like a four year old?
