Well, it's pretty nice and all, but as a sport -- very far from real sword fighting. Loses its spirit with blunted swords and protective gear; I don't like the sparring aspect of it very much, and it tends to be put on a pedestal too much. The other stuff is cool, though.
Meaning lies as much
in the mind of the reader
as in the Haiku.

Something like this might be a bit closer to 'reality', or well, historical practices of 15-16 centuries. Back then they didnt have goggles ofcourse, but the mask and good hand protection are large game-changers

Vikings ships went far up river into Rus.  King Charles of Sweden traveled all across Russia.
