Japanese swordfighting

Everyone should read this article to understand the dangers of being too casual with your sword, trying things that are inherently dangerous, just showing off, or plain stupid.

I recommend that you never ever bring up your live sword against an opponent, even if you are absolutely sure of what you are doing...

... and certainly no twirling your sword in the air, or cutting fruit off of people's heads.
