  • Duel annecdote

    I found this short story of a sword duel and thought it to be interesting.

              thats really facinating,,, you always hear stories about insulted samurai's randomly beheading people and improptu duels in the street between two challengers, they have such a mystical and romantic feel about them..

                Did the rounin by any chance have red hair and a scar formed like an X?

                Seriously, nice story though, allways nice to read.

                  Aldo Nadi, the famous early 20th Century fencer, actually got into a duel with sharp epees. Read about it here.

                  He da*n near killed the guy.

                    Amazing... Simply amazing. At the start I thought Aldo would lose since he was holding back (he did not want to kill his opponent).

                    Both of them drank champagne afterwards...

                        Bi-ru-geiko: Both kendoka in ai-jyoudan, right hand is used to hold a mug of beer. Let your imagination work from there...

                          Fun read. Makes me remember why I think that people who romanticize about being samurai or whatever are completely nuts though... what a waste of life over nothing.
