Japan is better than Europe when it comes to swordsmanship

First of all, Japanese swordsmanship has not been restored by modern otaku like European swordsmanship, but it has been handed down as it is.

and there are no records from other regions that pay attention European swordsmanship, but there are many records from other regions that Japanese swordsmanship.

    Whether is true or not, the moment voice such an opinion you are going to get called a weeb and your opinion is going to be dismissed. There's just as many people that like to bitch about katanas in any situation as there's people that like to praise them to high heavens. This leads to people taking past each other for a few hours because nobody's going to change their stance on the matter. And if a discussion on the matter lasts long enough you'll have a polenerd show up to the talk about swords to shit on swords and shill spears. I've seen this charade time and time again.

    Does modern kenjutsu actually resemble traditional Japanese combative swordsmanship, or is it just an aesthetic? Like how Asian calligraphy is nothing to do with Japanese literature besides writing with a brush, how can you say that kenjutsu is how swords were actually used?

      Of course not, by the 17th century nobody was using a sword in Japan for anything other than looking cool. It's weebshit.

    They lost every sword-based encounter.

    Original sources > Japanese fake fighting in kendo.
    >and there are no records from other regions that pay attention European swordsmanship, but there are many records from other regions that Japanese swordsmanship.
    Europe conquered those regions with guns while Japs were still running around in worthless armor with garbage 2 handed sabres.

    Obviously Europe, a continent-sized area, would not usually have its swordsmanship spread outside of the continent unless the swords did too. And those swords, Europe had way more variations of them, leading to more diversity in techniques. So it's not better, it's just different.

    Japanese swordsmanship is mostly autism larp to keep the samurai busy during peacetime. You think anyone gave a shit about swords during sengoku? No, it was all about the guns.

    Yes Japanese swordsmen are incredibly dangerous. However, any musketeer can put a hole in a Japanese swordsman. That and Japs don't fight in formation, a result of fighting amongst themselves for centuries without learning from their neighbors. China's armies is more capable even with crippling corruption. Caesar's legions could conquer 10 Japan. Alexander might have trouble but thats only because of how hilly Japan is. No matter how good an individual warrior is, even with 10x the number of their enemy, they are no match against a well coordinated fighting force. Japan's lack of sophisticated tactics in battle makes them vastly inferior to any other civilisation until the advent of firearms.

    Yeah no. Europeans can easily pick up a flimsy katana and kill japs as easily as we mow the lawn

    everything you think is "japanese warrior culture" was invented by guys who sat around drinking tea and raping peasants during 600 years of practically undisturbed peace. comfy but irrelevant to anything

    It's a real shame Kenjutsu and Kendo are pale imitations of a functional art. Kenjutsu is all no touch "trust me bro" techniques and Kendo takes out pretty much all techniques until you just have boucy bonking.

    The same thing happened to Judo.

      Wrong.
      Judo is effective, precisely because it is a sport and it can safely be trained at full intensity against a resisting opponent. This is why Judo is more effective than any new age supersoldier martial art bullshit. Simply because the sport element weeds out everything that doesn't work.

        Judo is great I agree, but it is not what it used to be. Most of the standing work was taken out, and the nastier parts removed so that it would be used relatively safely as a sport. Same with JJ and specifically BJJ, all the nasty stuff is out, in real life people hit groins, gouge eyes, and bite.

          Yes, you take it out, because you can't really train it. There's no point in having these things, if you cannot make someone get good at them against a resisting opponent.

            You absolutely can scale training and still build awareness of what *might* happen. This is why BJJ purists shit themselves when wrestlers know a bit of BJJ or they have to try and get hold of a boxer.
