@grosours thank you! I hope meet some new friends on this instance. Btw, nice sword! :)
Do you practice kendo?
@brenno no kendo, but HEMA and iaido. I started iaido 20 years ago but I find kendo less realistic so I prefer using my skills for katana drawing and sparring with other swords.
@grosours Is HEMA like a wrestling? Seems cool!
I love martial arts, but I stopped doing it maybe 10 years ago. Maybe someday I'll do it again.
@brenno sword / axe / any deadly weapon sparring based on historical documentation (texts or pictures) from ancient ages to nowadays on european territory through ages. I found a lot of techniques which are similar to japanese sparring.
@grosours interesting! Rescuing traditions like this is very important. Nice hobby... historical hobby!
@brenno discovered it first time in the backyard of a snack bar. the sensei was the bartender. I asked him to teach me and I started on week ends. he was giving me instructions between 2 clients orders
@grosours you will, someday you will. 😉
I miss a place to fit me too... lately many things have changed for me
