(41) My sword is bigger than yours


I think that Shin Muso Hayashizaki Ryu’s decision to use a male and a female practitioner for the particular demonstration of kenjutsu (classical swordsmanship) might have been a little ill-advised. Either that or the school’s people were too innocent to think of the pretty obvious Freudian overtones.
