Sword Fighting is Magic

Journal Entry: Thu May 7, 2015, 6:09 AM
Yesterday I learned that if you can pick up a sword, which at beginner level weighs about a pound and a half, then you can also hold the weight of a full grown person impaled on your sword. If you're standing right, it barely adds any weight even if someone throws themself at you. I held up all the weight of our teacher as though he weighed less than a glass of water.

The nice thing about this vs a sport-style art (karate, kendo, etc.) is that the measure of success is: did you live (against your imaginary opponent)? If you're alive, then congrats, you did it right! :D

Anyways. I'm having so much fun. And I highly recommend iaido to anyone who wants to learn sword fighting. It's both very zen, and very fun. Though it's not for quitters. It takes a long time to get good.

Old joke. PETA once has a campaign to call fish sea kittens because nobody would eat a kitten.

I'm guessing it wasn't successful.
