    I don't think that there are any ACTA members on this board.

    Pretty cool exchange. I'd have to classify this as Larping done right :)

    Gonna have to agree here. I know it has a generally bad vibe to it,but if you're going to LARP??? then the example these guys set is what you should be aiming to emulate.

    Thanks for the vid link. I was getting so incredibly sick of the lame ass ninja vids that are on show at the moment.

    Re. LARPing in this context, it's worth pointing out that ACTA is a professional team of "historical interpreters" who perform historical martial arts displays for museums, etc.

    I'd call it LARPing as well but not in a negative sense at all, this is how it should be done. It's very entertaining.

    I like the cheeky low kicks/superman punches (well stabs I guess) thrown in.
