I wanna ask you all something. Do any of you sword fight? I mean, you dont have to use a sword, but your improvise and use long doll rods as a training sword and fight against other people? I love to sword fight, its the best excercise and is also fun to do, as long as you dont mind getting smacked alot of getting bruises all over your hands. So, do any of you sword fight with doll rods or with kendo swords, or with real swords, etc?

Well me and my friends make bases down at these woods. We have battles at times for land and we use the sticks we can find for swords. Sadly our base never won a single battle.

LOL, swordfight...

Goddamn my dirty mind, brought on by the scarring effects of watching plenty of "swordfights" in the bathroom in elementary school.

Me and my cousin do often. When we do, we usually use roughly four-to-five foot long fiberglass sticks - wearing thin gloves to avoid splinters and lessen the sting of being hit in the hands. Me and an old friend of mine named Phillip used to use long, thick wooden sticks. Some straight, some not quite. And another friend of mine has made a few fake swords specifically for swordfighting.

Of course, sometimes I use the sticks more like a staff and less like a sword...

Sword fight? Yeah, I am somewhat decent in it. Not too prefect. And my sword is a wood stick rod. I could use it fairly but someone is wimping out too fast.

I also have a huge branches I used to swing around like crazy. Let's say it can break bones well but I need to weild it without having any problem.

I also used a bamboo stick as part of trainning my lance. I prefer using lances over swords so I fight easier and without any problem. That and I can fight fast with it.

So I favored in Lance and Sword. I like using lance over sword because I am good with it.

My stepbrother and i used to every now and again, using Bokken. We both have some light training (basic iiado myself), and we're both rather good.

Granted, we're not talking about just swinging a few sticks around. I'm 20, he's 26, and we've both been known to deal out some rather serious hits.

Well maybe if my sword wasnt freakin weak as hell to your thick sword, i wouldnt have to get away from you. Your wood stick freakin snapped mine in half in one blow (thats why i got a slightly longer one and thicker one.) Anyway, i havent sword fought anyone latley, i use to fight Shanan, but he usually thrusts the doll rod at me and expects me to parry the thrust (yeah, right...), but since this whole thing happened that will not be explained here, I havent gotten to fight him. My other friend however likes to fight with his sabers. I fought him a couple times, and i have to say he is pretty okay with a saber, but a doll rod, probably not. He doesnt go at it like he is actually in a life or death fight (unlike Shanan, which is much of the reason I back away from him), but he fights like its just a fun activity. But he did smack me one time in the side >.< that hurt like a mother...

Y'know, I considered that after a while. I had assumed you and everyone else would know I was responding to the topic and not to Johnny's post and that this wouldn't even be brought up.

Ha, yes. Sorry for the stir with that post of mine, that was a bit unneccisary.

I've actually have something for the topic... yeah...

When I was really little the kids in my neighborhood would stand in a circle and have two go in the middle and beat eachother up with sticks. Whoever cried was kicked outta the circle, or if you were hit three times. Other than those times, I haven't really fought much with any sword of any kind. Well, at a birthday get together, my friends brother and another friend of mine were running around in the woods and fighting with sticks, so I guess the boyish pleasure of smacking wood will never die with me.

Me and my friends would do mock things with anything we could get our hands on. Plastic bats, sticks, wooden swords(Easten vs Westen), etc.

I do a bit, used a bokken and a shinai (sp?) before, as well as sticks. I don't really have any formal training, so I kinda suck at it, but it really is a lot of fun.

I've fought with sticks and such... Never swords, mom never allowed sharp objects, but pointy sticks was a deffinete okay..

I used to hate though, because my brother would turn it into a soap opera after a while.

My cousin and I have sword fights with broken off branches every once in a great while. The last time we had one was with two of his friends last month when he was on vacation. We had a 4-way stick fight. I could tell I improved since the last time we fought. I was being more offensive that defensive. I haven't had any formal training except maybe a thing or two in Taekwondo, but I'm better than your average stick fighting warrior.

Had another swordfight yesterday with one of my friends, and I realized something....

we both suck at blocking. If I follow a horizontal slash with a vertical strike, he can't block the second one. Similarly, if I delay an attack with a quick spin, he lowers his guard and can't reraise it in time for the attack.

Meanwhile, I try to repel attacks that aren't even coming, especially when I only have one hand on the sword.

As far as my cousin goes... he's kinda good at dodging, when he's trying, but he's too clumsily aggressive, and he often forgets to block or dodge. This causes me to land a hit even more often when he goes on the offensive.

And another old friend of mine, who I haven't seen in a few months, was more of a defender than an attacker. Still pretty good, just completely different from what I fight now... as such, he'd probably win.
