I get that its fun to own one, but whats the point of knowing how to use it? I see some of you had training, but for what? Unless you do kendo its no use. Its not like the world is gonna be taken over by zombies, and you have to use swords instead of guns when killing them in order to not attract more of them.


I don't see why you think kendo should be more reasonable to learn than any other. People learn so that the styles aren't lost or for the discipline it will still give them. They learn for competitions or even just because it interests them. There are plenty of things people learn that they will never need to know or use.

As for the topic, yes, I have held a sword as I own a few katana and plan to collect many more of them over time.


Well i guess we got a different opinion regarding that then. I see the merit in learning something for fun only if it can be used in every day life situations.

The only real sword (non-cheap replica, but still ceremonial) that I've used was a saber for JROTC drill team in high school. Sort of like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzg2egUKW_s


I've always wanted to take up kendo or fencing though just no clubs or classes or anything in my area...

Yes, a Muslim sword with dried blood on it. It has been used to cut off human heads. I'm serious.

I have about 6 katanas. 2 are crappy but the rest I paid quite a bit for. I also took kenjutsu, so yeah I've held swords quite a bit...

Oh yeah, I also have a full size replica of Ichigo's Zanpakuto Zangetsu. That fucker is heavy...

And an authentic nodachi. Yeah I spend way too much money on swords...
