  • Description

    Full title reads: "Fencing on Ice".

    Tokyo, Japan.

    VS of a display by Japanese students of their ability to sheath and unsheathe a long samurai sword while skating on ice, and a demonstration of their skill with the swords as they lunge at dummies on the ice.

    VS of swordsmen giving a demonstration of fencing using long sticks instead of swords and wearing samurai style protective clothing (looks like Kendo).
