Musashi Wakizashi II, the Samurai's Blade
Like all the kids in his city, Sashi wanted to become a samurai. Before one of them, his eyes became full of stars and he thought of the encounter for days. Like any other kid, never he would have dared to take to one, so important next to his little person. Like everyone, he dreamt day and night about what he could accomplish later in life. What took him appart from the other boys his age was his iron will. While they played, every moment he had was used for combat training, protocol lessons and martial arts practice. By 15, while they helped their parents in the fields, he was accepted as a pupil of a samurai. He would have the honour of learning from him the ancient arts. Before being a samurai himself, he could not wield the katana; his master’s wakizashi was all he needed.
The wakizashi is an historical weapon from medieval Japan. Shorter than the prestigious katana, it was a weapon for close quarter combat and one of the weapons of the samurai warrior class. In LARP, this foam saber can be used by ronins, novices warriors, ninjas, and powerful daimyos alike.
