I thought I'd take this Sunday to share a story about one of my great ancestors, a r?nin of uneven temper who was renowned for his swordsmanship and alcoholism in equal measure. The latter, combined with a weakness for gambling, was to be his eventual downfall.

On one fateful day, whilst settling down for dinner at a local establishment, he was confronted by two debt collectors who were as happy to leave with his head as his purse. Having already sold his swords to pay off previous debts, he reached for the only thing he had to hand: his eating utensils.

After swiftly dispatching his assailants, he then proceeded to sit back down to his meal, pausing only to request a new chopstick: the other one was broken.

This one's for you, you legend.

Thank goodness he didn't dispatch his mum with a pronged utensil or you'd be known now as Motherforker...

This looks just like it's an authentic period photograph of your famed ancestor. I can't believe how well it's done! And, to top it off, those swords are awesome!

If those are his "chopsticks" then I can see why he wasn't worried!

I actually trained in Kenjutsu from 5 years old until I was 20, first in Yagyu Shinkage-ryu, then into Kashima Shin-ryu when I moved to Georgia.

I'll have to get dressed for a photo and do my best gaijin samurai impression.
