There are tougher sports than kendo. Getting hit by shinai hurts a bit but it's not bad. Certainly not as rough as Muay Thai.

Dim Mak is bullshiat.

Man, Muay Thai is just brutal. Went to a match in Chiang Mai and they had kids no older than 13 competing. One had to be taken out in a stretcher.

Though that one Thai sport which is volleyball but only allowed to use your feet is hard as fark.

Kendo would be super hardcore if the armor weren't there. But with the armor the worst you'd get with a reasonable opponent is a bruise.

Glad to see buzkashi made the list, but it should have been first. It is the most insane sport ever created by several orders of magnitude. Hundreds and hundreds of people fighting for control of a dead calf on an undefined space, with spectators right there in the thick of it. Best of all, and which they forgot to mention in the video, cash prizes are awarded not to the winning team, but to the individual scorers. So the other team is trying to take the calf away from you, and so is everybody else. Whipping, kicking, and punching people is perfectly acceptable. It is the most dangerous and chaotic thing on Earth.

That's nuts.

Why have I never heard of the urumi until now?

This is a weapon so awesome even video games characters fear to use it.

Man, you sound super-hardcore; you must have virtually grown up with kendo sticks.

As long as the sport doesn't include driving then I'm sure the Asians will do just fine.

So it's hardcore "smear the queer" with a farking calf carcass. Awesome?

They're not bad, certainly compared to a Muay Thai bought.

Anyone catch this on How I Met Your Mother this week?

"Sparky loved chasing a ball and it didn't much matter what kind: baseball, Wiffle ball, golf ball, basketball, beach ball, gumball. He keeps going. "A grapefruit, which isn't actually a ball, but it is round like a ball. A football, which isn't actually round, but it's still technically a ball. An India Rubber ball..."

I had heard back in the old days people used to beat their kids with kendo swords but that may be just an old wives' tale to care the chilluns.

What an Asian athlete might look like:



I swear, it's like an idiot magnet - just stick the word 'Asian' into the headline, and out comes the witless assholes who think they are funny but just come across as idiots.

I always reckon somewhere along the way some Asian must have kicked the shiat out of them, or maybe shagged their mothers or sisters.

article was full of fail, kendo has three judges so they can see the fight from all angles not because its so dangerous.

Muay Thai IS bad ass and hardcore, but there's two types, the type you can catch on espn2 at times that's real, and the kind that's like American wrestling AKA a fake show, the video was of the later, scripted.

Ankathari is as much of a sport as ballet is, its not a competition, and therefore is not a sport.

Dim Mak is quasi real, it kinda works but there's no mysticism about it there are just certain nerves on the body that dont like being pressured, that master would have issues harming a fat person whos sensitive nerves are more protected and slightly displaced.

You're right, that was scripted, but I think it was more as an exhibition of classical muy thai techniques than because it's supposed to be a 'wrestling' type show. Modern sport muy thai has been sportified and because of it is not nearly as hard-core as the classical bouts.

To be fair, the "classical bouts" often ended in broken bones or death. Kinda like UFC toned it down, the mainstream audience's bloodlust only extends so far...
