yeah, i also have a kendo stick which i use for "applying" my swordfighting, lol. and yeah, i don't curse gratuitously, but it is definitely there when i have strong feelings or opinions about stuff. i also dont try to piss people off unless im horrifically, dangerously bored, then i just go pick a fight. that's the onyl kind of bad thing about me knowing how to fight, i use it alot. don't get me wrong, i get my ass handed to me alot, usually by my friend ben (guy can FIGHT) but i usually dont lose, so i get full of myself. that no-nonsense link you showed me is pretty awesome, and i agree with most of what he was saying, but i am one of those almost truly violent people, which mainly arises from alot of other issues you dont really want to hear about and i dont really want to type about.
as to my sword, i know, it is the second most precious thing in the world to me. the first being my music (rage festering metal. black/death/matalcore/numetal/all kinds of metal. i have something like 1200 hours of music.) it's sad really, that my sword and my music take precedence over everything else, but hell one has to have his passions, right? and yeah, like i said earlier, my dad has alot of contacts and friends in the knife world so i get alot of stuff, but by no means is it all free. i have done my fair share of 18 hour work days in his store to pay off 800$ customs, and it is worth it.
i also wrote a practical nine-page guide on how to kill jocks. (as i am a sophomore in high school, and only like 110 pounds, i have to know how to handle myself to take out 250 pound masses of linebacker muscle, and i felt like sharing this information with my friends.) but as nine pages could NEVER teach one to really fight, i left it as basically a few tidbits of info, and a bunch of things that one could come to me and ask about. i am not qualified to teach anyone to fight, nor do i know any ordained "martial art", but i still do, and everyone sucks it up like coke at an eighties afterparty. but i consider jocks and those more muscular and athletic than myself proverbial "big game" and this is where i may differ from many of you. i am a relatively calm and well adjusted guy, but i have a bloodlust of sorts that is rarely filled.
as to learning how to use my sword, i would join a ninjutsu class in a heartbeat, if only one was near me. there is a iai-jutsu school right by me, but it's like 350$ a month, and i dont have that kind of money to spare. (i just had a very happy moment, i was trying to remember the name for the art of the japanese sword, iai-justu, for like a month and i just now did) so i have my more afluent friends teach me what they learn in the class secondhand, i learn more than them really, because from what i hear the instructors there are real tight ass disciplinarians. so i end up giving them new more objective insights into what they learn, and essentially benefit them more than myself.
i also hold basement fighting tourneys. those are so fun. you get your ass kicked, break bones sometimes, but it's worth it, im one of those people that doesn't really mind pain, so i like it. i love finding my limits and egging them to move along as i do. but i usually end up losing these tournaments because of my friend ben. he is one year older than me, but he does lacrosse, and i am not at the point in my abilities where someone of my ability or betters' strength doesn't matter. so he usually owns me. this is why i put him on the opposite side of the bracket, lol. but i tend to kick ass till he comes up against me, then i learn stuff from him even when fighting. he is always telling me what i am doing right and what i am doing wrong, so it's all good. he has been doing the systema thing i have been doing for about 10 years, so he is far beyond me, basically a fourth instructor.
and i am rambling,i will now spare you my long-winded explanations of whatever-the-hell-i-am-talking-about. whenever i ramle in real life people walk away, so this is a nice outlet. ok, shutting up now.
