      Find a samurai and become his apprentice/butt lover because samurais believed recreational sex with a woman made them effeminate. They will teach you the way of the sword at night.

    Just like anything else guitar, cooking, driving, its about how many hours you put in. If you put in 200hrs a year with a sword in your backyard you're going to be a better swordsman than 99% of the population.

      If you know any, what are some reference materials for solo learning? There aren't any dojos near me.

    You would have to go to Japan, bow down to the current emperor, and beg for the title. I don't think there are any one else left in Japan that has such authority to make you a samurai, so he is the only one you have to rely on.

      Good luck using this on any sentient target that's aware of your presence.

        The ancients didn't seem to have this problem.

            You're fucking retarded. Sheppard boys literally used slingshots to defend their herds from wolves. Literally smaller and more agile targets than humans. It's how the fucking weapon even came to be.

            The only downside to slingshots is that they require the most training out of any of the ancient projectiles to be effective.

    I don't know shit about Japanese martial arts, but I'd look up some goober on Youtube, like Schola Gladitoria, they'll eventually spill the beans on their source material.
    Just know that if it feels unnatural, you might be doing it wrong.

    Enroll in a Kendo class?

      No. Don't do this. Kendo have nothing to do with swordfight or even samurai. Don't bother with Iaido either. They are even meme-er than Kendo. What you want is learning Kenjutsu. Unfortunately they are fuckload of dojo and techniques and they are all in Japan.

    Not just anyone could be a samurai, you had to be from an aristocratic family. It was actually illegal for commoners to have swords.

    You must climb the highest peaks, and seek out an old warrior to take you under his tutelage in order to train you in the arts of combat. You will learn the ancient ways of the nunchaku, katana, and shuriken. You must become swift as the wind, you must flow like a mighty river, and embody the wisdom of a tortoise. You must have a steel resolve, and firm dedication to your destiny, or he will see that you are not ready, and send you back down the mountain.

    Or you can larp like you want to and look gay as hell in your backyard swinging a chinesium reproduction at the air, because you don't dare hit anything with your alibaba sword for fear of goring yourself. Same-same at this point. Gun beats sword, it's 2022.
