    By buying his book and posting his name here all you have done is given him some publicity.

    Phil Elmore is a delusional asshat.

    When my dad was in prison, he shared a cell with a dude who would rob places with a bunch of other dudes in trenchcoats with katanas.

    I'd definately be interested in trading it around.

    As for the idea of using a sword in the modern day, in any context beyond sport or larping, it's fucking ludicrous.

    Even larpers admit that it's a stupid idea to even use one for home defense.

    The important question is: When are you ever going to use a sword to defend yourself EVER? The only time I could see myself both being attacked for real and having access to a sword would be if I kept one in my home or possibly vehicle and was attacked there. I find either scenario both unlikely and better handled in a different way.

    Sword are cool and everything, but let's admit that if you are using a sword for self defense, it has to be due in large part to your own conceit or fetish for swords.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

    That does it, I'm going to outsell Phil with my book "Dirty Fighting for Disabled people" (Copyright 2007)

    A mixture of my wrestling training (2 weeks or so) boxing (undetermined) and absolute bitter gimpishness

    If anyone steals my idea I'll mistake for a brie and you will see Cheeseknife-jutsu
    What am I?:

    I am ignorant, thieving, lying, hypocrital, violent and thoroughly self obssessed. I steal from others to make myself look better, only to make the item or information worse.

    I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.

    You guys may scoff, but I was on a bus the other day, there was this big fucking goth guy with a black bag and something sticking out of it. Bus goes round a corner, bag slides off seat, the thing sticking out of it is a fucking huge katana.

    People like this are everywhere

    That's some scary ****.

    You should have challenged him to an Irish fistfighting match and bata contest for ripping off the Japanese and making people like me too scared to visit Ireland.
