Aside from my MMA record, I never competed in Kendo. I have been practicing for four years, hardly time to jump into a tournament, but I have been weilding blades for as long as I can remember. I competed in several Pennsic tournaments, though a great workout, not nearly as brutal anymore. I practiced with the SCA, Kingdom of the East, and became particularly good at Medieval, dual-wield blade combat. I have a collection of exotic blades (as featured above) from Angelsword, Buhko-Taigun, Ramier, Avalon/Percival, and Avatar. ( www.angelsword.com )
The one above is an Angelsword I bought at the New York Renaissance Faire (Tuxedo) where I used to work. Its a fantastic blade, paid a lot of money and its in my will to go to my nephew ( i have no kids, im 20 ) should I die before I do have kids.
Ive practiced blade combat longer then I practiced MMA, and I never officially won anything for my skills. Aside from my guilt trip, are they any T-Nationers out there who play/practice/compete with swords? Id like to get some new ideas to what sword I want next too, so If you have one (or like me, many) post em, show those beauties off.
