    Besides what’s probably a faux katana, its being worn in the wrong direction: the sword is supposed to be worn curved side facing upwards to facilitate taking t out of the scabbard quickly…..

      Yup. Was stationed in Japan and saw some guys I would never fuck with. It’s called iaido. Draw and strike in one move. Flick blood off and return to scabbard. Three four seconds max. These guys were the real deal. They used sheets of rolled bamboo as targets but you get my drift.

        And an alert man with a 45 can render them dead dead dead in less than 2 seconds.
        All that wasted training…

          Is that the short bus in the background? ;^))

          You win.

          Then again WWII Marines shot the guy with the sword first. Kinda like they did to the Marine wearing a flamethrower.

          Hard core NFOD.

          That’s why even in the days of old, the Katana was a sidearm. You shoot the guy in the back with an arrow then go up and take the head. That’s how you kill with Japanese weapons before the EDO period. The Katana wasn’t considered a primary weapon until swords were banned for common folk in Japan around 1600.(Start of EDO period) It was called the “Great Sword Hunt” The Shogun ordered every weapon but the ones owned by the Samurai collected and destroyed. After that the Samurai could kill anyone they wanted too and no longer needed the bow. They even had the right to kill at random to test a new blade. BTW a Katana worn edge down is a TACHI. Same weapon. AND !!! The guy in the cammo yukata has a Glock in his other hand. Iaido is a CQB technic for fighting inside a small room.

      • RedNova says:

        Yup, I too lived in Japan (not stationed) and practiced another form of swordsmanship, and watched Iaido being practiced. In the pre-Perry days, the bodies on convicts were, I was told, used to see how well a sword was made/skill of its wielder.

    Camo kimono? Brilliant I sez!

    Back in the day when the Portugese were the only gaijin allowed in Japan there were recorded many duels between the gaijin and the samuri.
    If the participants began with swords drawn the Portugese ALWAYS won (la point, toujours la pointe). If the participants started with swords in their scabbards the samuri ALWAYS won.
    And yeah, I know the Portguses did not speak French.

    I am digging that cammo thing the Jap guy is wearing. That would be just the thing for relaxing around home
