    I sent the following to his sister via YouTube

    Don't put anything online you are not prepared to have ridiculed. If the comments being left upset you, or your brother, you need to take the video down. Unfortunately it's already been re-posted to several sites and accounts so the damage has already been done.

    I want you to sit and think that from the moment that video went up, until the last person tires of watching it THAT VIDEO will be what your brother will be known for. Thank about that before you post anything else online.

    As for your brother, if he genuinely want's to learn to use a sword find him a school, get him enrolled, and have him work with a dedicated, competent, instructor.

    I wish you, and him, all the best.
    I do not aspire to be great, or even good, I hope to suck a little less then last class.

    This.

    There was a guy who was learning Iaido from books and movies at home who floated around on a couple of forums sharing his story of how he stabbed himself completely through his forearm when attempting to do a reverse noto. I don't remember the details but his recovery was pretty hard and I think he said that he has some permanent nerve damage.

    Yeah, but they're rare. Yaw Yan and Lethwei come to mind as systems practiced exclusively by shredded yellowish-brown people.

    Guys like Ashida or Choson would see no problem giving a guy like that "advice." Choson would probably give him a black belt in sword kwan do, and try to pull the "working with the disabled" card every time someone would give him crap. I'm glad to see there are people who addressed the sister directly. Hopefully no permanent damage has been done, and the kid turns this into something more or less positive.

    On that note, didn't we have a poster with Aspergers here on the forum?

    I do vaguely know someone (cousin of a friend) who sliced the palm of his hand open within minutes of getting his brand new katana in the mail. I wasn't there when it happened but AFAIK, he grasped the blade and 'stroked' along its length, yaknow, like sliding his hand down it - not realizing how sharp it was. I know that he needed sutures and that the wound would keep ripping open at inappropriate moments, even when it was well on the way to healing.

    That's how easy it is, if you don't think around swords.

    Yes, I've heard those things can be lethal!

    As to there being an Asperger's bullshido poster, this is the internet: there are no girls and everyone has (self diagnosed) Asperger's.

    My Aspergers is self imposed. I don't care if some consider it inappropriate to post on forums while butt naked, wearing a hockey mask, with electrodes attached to my genitals, triggered to go off every time I get an e-mail.

    I think the poster who openly stated that he grew up with Aspergers had the screen name Music Mike something... I don't recall. One of the officers I work with has a mild Aspergers, and she seems fine. She can be awkward at times, but she manages it well, and is relatively successful in what she does. If the kid has what she has, I'm not too worried. The sister, though, needs a good talking to.

    It's hard not to be cynical when someone claims Asperger's (or autism in general) on the internet these days, what with all the attention-seekers and drama whores about - especially if they only start up with the talk about it when they've been called out for being an ass or making up all sorts of other ****.

    (not a comment on the kid in the video - just a general observation)
