    THE PIRATE DOJO .... and, yes, we are goddamn "serious."

    There's been a few of us for a couple of years. We play singlestick. We start off by smashing "pates" (which are little things attached to our masks).
    First person to smash pate wins. person who moves feet loses. No shots below the girdle.

    YouTube - Singlestick: The Old Game

    As we advance (really, become willing to), we advance to the "New Providence Rules" which comes from a very brief description by Woodes Rogers of their "fencing"..... Like keiko, we play for spirit. No stopping for touches, so no rule against "foul hits.". Just go.

    I've been fencing for freakin ever with a good bit of kendo. What I've learned is that style is good but can be hampering. A clever guy with serious practice can become really good while avoiding theory altogether.
    So, we honor our pirate ancestry by doing that.
    If you're willing to play, you have what it takes. no teachers.
    Captains are the guys who put the clubs together. divide cost by members. no profit.

    If there's another pirate dojo around, you guys'll probably meet.
    no rankings. no dans. Unless you want to self-appoint, in which case beware of humiliating asswoopin'.

    I guess I should type in random related crap so peoples can find me goddammit. Pirate martial arts. cutlass. singlestick. singlestick fencing. cutlass fencing. backsword. pirates. historical fencing. western martial arts (absurd). I think it works that way I don't know nuthin bout computers.

    Please post videos of your Pirate unarmed combat. I can't wait to see if two retards 'unhampered' by technique flailing around in puffy shirts.

    Also, shouldn't you have single shot pistols and be kicking each other in the shins and stuff? You look pretty reserved in general. I thought the big deal about pirates is that they don't play fair.

    What made you decide that a pirate whacks at chopped liver sitting on an opponent's head for practice?
    Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.

    Looks a bit like academic fencing with the minimal footwork and the targeting of the head.
