    The funny thing is that, I actually know someone who found a broadsword in a dumpster (the aluminimum kind tho-).

    I guess it's a realistic possibility afterall. Go figure.

    He came to school wearing his armor plated kimono one time. WHAT AN AWESOME GUY!

    You know that friend of mine that found the sword? Well, it just so happens that he and I have this agreement that the next time we see one another, we fight. We don't want to kill each other though, we're friends.

    It looked like a cheap-o black kimono with little metal plates on the inside

    It saddens -_-;; me to see that weapon training has become such a lost art and that so many misconceptions surround it. In order to dispell these and elevate Throwdown to a whole new level, I present to you the...

    Official BullshidoCon Weapon Dueling Guide

    Konichiwa, Bullshidotaku! In your never-ending quest to become a Complete Martial Artist, weapon sparring should be no more foreign to you than your daily stance training atop poles above sarced pools. This easy-to-follow guide will give you everything you need to properly setup and participate in knife, katana and whipblade sparring.

    So our journey begins...

    Rules One: Bring your own gear. It is always smarter to come prepared than to leave disappointed.



    True warriors are always prepared for battle.
    Safety first! Protective gear is very important in preventing injuries and winning over the judges. The stages of combat break down as follows:

    Light -- For low intensity dueling, only basic headgear is needed.


    Dress optional.
    Medium -- As the power level of the battle rises, so to should your armor.



    Note shock blade.
    Heavy -- If you're going to engaging is some hardkore contact, one or both parties should be suited with appropriately padded gear.



    Sparring getting hot and heavy!
    Caution!!!

    Several problems can arise from improper use of safety apparatus.

    Not all protective gear is created equal! Faulty gear can be worse than none at all since it gives attendees a false sense of security leading to more serious inury.



    Beware of a saggy flack jacket.
    Second of these is that excessive padding can make the combatants fail to respect/fear the blade.



    Too much gear can transform training into nothing more than a deceptive game.
    Realism second. In order to maintain learism, one party should be assigned the role of attacker (antagonist) and the other defender (protagonist). Without this, the match will lack purpose and direction.


    Left, our hero. Right, our villian, her beauty matched only by her cruelness. Far left, drummerboy.
    At last but not least... Be prepared to get hurt! After a good training session, it is not uncommon to be covered in bruises.



    Wear your badges of honor with pride. ^_^
    ****

    I hope that clears up some of the common misconception about knifu fighting. While it may seem I have given you nothing more than a few guidelines, in truth I have given you far more: for the first time in your life, you have within your grasp the ability to defend yourself and, if you're luckly, talk to a girl.


    Kekeke.
