I tried an original Japanase armour. Had the opportunity to borrow one. I've been training Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto ryu for close to 25 years and been teaching it for quite some time too. But until now, I've never had to chance to try my technique in an actual armour.
cool

You win, though watching "the best video game movie ever" (Pokémon Detective Pikachu) with the family in the cinema is a close second place

Edit: Warning, above link contains spoilers!

Don't think I will watch it, but my son is eager to go. This weekend, I believe. I think he watched all seasons three times, by now. laugh

You proceed from a false assumption. I am a Vulcan. I have no ego to bruise.

These are not the droids you're looking for. You can go about your business.

My youngest daughter graduated high school so there was the ceremony and then several events/parties that we attended because of her friend's graduations.

It was actually lighter to wear than what I expected.
And it was a tight fit, might've just been one size too small.

I had my son hit me with a stick. Didn't feel a thing. Even in that department it exceeded my expectations.

A friend of mine does samurai reenacting stuff and I am constantly surprised at how fake things that are authentic to the era look. They look almost like something a cartoon came up with, which is probably more indicative of media appropriation than anything else, really.

Anyway, I moved from one apartment to another and then had my first day of renaissance fair training for the summer season. Woo!
