My cousin plays LoL with his current girlfriend, actually... so I can't say I disagree. It's all a matter of attitude towards it...

It's fun to watch, both pro players and lame noobs alike. At least for a while, couple matches from couple perspectives... then it gets dull, like LoL or CS...

True, true... you got a point there.
But I wouldn't do it exactly like that, and for those same reasons.
Why? Because despite everything I do or say IRL - I. Am. Crazy.
So I wouldn't bring the sword into the plane, but I would immediately use any long stick-like object I would find within 2 seconds if I'd need to. I wouldn't go with it into the bank and stop the robbery, but I would use the skills honed WITH the blade to disarm someone if I'd want to. I wouldn't take it to work, not the one I have right now, but I don't know if in 5 or 15 years I won't get a job that will need the ability to efficiently use bladed weaponry, and as I always say - always be prepared, and better safe than sorry.
So, while your argument is valid for you in your case, and most probably in case of 99% of people that would read it, I am different. And not just opinion-wise different. I'm crazy different. If I was to chose alternate reality where I can manipulate my younger self into doing sh*t differently than I did them, I would make myself into a freaking merc. True story.

That being said, I think its mostly semantics. I don't want to give the impression I was offended or some shit because I wasn't. And as far as that stuff goes, geeks have to band together. So whatever you want to call it, wherever it originated I don't intend to be narrow minded or discriminate. If it comes from China, Japan, Europe, wherever. I intend to learn how to efficiently slaughter Men with a a sword. Including but not limited to: slicing, cutting, thrusting, beating them with the pommel, grabbing the blade and ramming it into them with extra force, grappling, punching. All of it.

Doesn't it just fascinate you?! Fascinates the fuck out of me. We all grew up with all these stories, books, shows, movies, games, toys. You name it, swords were fucking everywhere. But the actual knowledge for how to use one, is basically a dead art. Anyone who has had to use one to actually kill other human beings in an actual battle when it was the standard has long since perished and almost any memory of them and their skills has turned to dust. What little we have left is old books with funky pictures that were fucking written in rhyming verse. They think it was done that way because no one knew how to read and write, so it was a device to help memorize the stuff when it was read to or recited to illiterate warriors.

So we have this dusty old half knowledge and some badass historians and nerds have gotten together, read this shit, translated it, spent 20 years practicing it (as I understand it interest started to kindle in the 80's) and have put together some enticing tidbits of knowledge on the subject.

I know its never going to be useful. I wont be able to take the sword to work, get on a plane with it, or walk into a bank and prevent a robbery using it. I'm not crazy. But swords have impacted my life a lot through fantasy, and I'm ready to learn a thing or two about them. How they ACTUALLY work. I think it would be fun to learn just for the sake of learning.

Are you sure you meant HEMA and not HES? I doubt your sword be fitting the description for classical fencing, Bartitsu or stick-fighting... which as far as I know are the only ones being directly referred to as martial arts. The rest are swordsmanship, hence S in HES instead of MA (martial arts), just a subsidiary of HEMA... But yeah, what do I know, I'm dumb and I know it xd
You want HEMA - practice HEMA. I however would probably practice swordsmanship instead if I had a sword xd

Yep. Sword Karate, or HEMA for short. Whenever my actual sword arrives this fall. Also, I'd like the zombie apocalypse to hold off until my sword arrives please.

One of several personal improvement goals I have. Eating more veggies more consistently is another one. Waking up at a more consistent time whether I'm off or not. And the last one I'd call just personal meditation and growth. Letting go of the things that stress me out, relaxing, and sharpening my mind. That is a loose goal, to narrow it down the focus at the moment is time. In my job everything I do is graded, judged, critiqued, and timed. I have constant interruptions from clocks and phones. Hence, in my free time I tend to not like clocks or phones very much. Becoming more at home with looking at the time and not letting it make me angry. Reaching a kind of inner calm. That would more or less be my last goal.

I don't know why or how, I've never really been taught how to do these things, but I always did that, Obbie... to me that was the normal and logical thing to do, and it worked. That's why my "saiyan training" increase method worked perfecty (until I broke the damn collarbone) and it will still work when I get to actual exercising...

I've been gradually increasing my exercise. I started out light, doing a bunch of activities to just get my muscles used to it again. And now I'm doing more isolated and intense exercises on a daily basis. I've found that its hard to do more than 7 or 8 exercises a day.

I've found that its helpful to train at the maximum I can handle, pushing myself fairly hard. But at the same time, to do the exercises very, very slowly. If you are using bad form, its very hard to do an exercise slowly. And if you are using good form, its easier to evaluate and you seem to get a harder workout from it.
