    If you're spending time training how to block swords with your hands, in earnest and sincerity, you're an idiot.

    Get with the times Phrost and get out of your sport MA delusions. Swords are on teh str33ts everywhere! Hell we still have a trial going on over here where this kid killed his stepfather a few blocks from my house using a katana http://www.newsday.com/news/local/lo...news-headlines

    And to the Kosher Ninja mod, my apologies. I mixed up my discovery channel shows. But regardless, it seems like way too much ninja lovin' lately as a whole.

    1. Gunkata is not theoretically possible.

    2. Ninjew should not move Phrost's post; he should instead edit it to make Phrost look like an anti-semitic furry. Phrost loves stuff like that; it shows backbone.

    3. My buddy John carries a Himalayan Imports "Ang Khola" Khukri in Afghanistan, but I don't think he's beheaded any Al Qaeda with it. Yet.

    Bah, you can't tell by all the "Yes Men" I've put in positions around here that never disagree with me, that I like my staff members docile and spineless?

    Your buddy John is cool. I'll buy him an e-beer.

    I saw it. I can't comment on the Japanese swords, but I have some problems with the testing that they did with European swords. So did the guys at The ARMA. There was a lot of talk on their forum. I have some rapiers; the antique ones and the historical reproductions aren't nearly as "whippy" as the one they tested. Some of the practice blunts I have behave just like theirs did. I believe that's what they used.

    Necro for John's blog:

    http://www.johnrshirley.com/

    He posts at www.thehighroad.org too. Before anyone asks, yes, he's a Booj. I haven't sparred him because he would have wiped the floor with me, especially back then.

    Good friend, bad enemy.
