"LARPing" (Live Action Role Playing) has been around for a while, and even if you personally have never participated, you probably at least know what it is thanks to the movie "Role Models." Here however, the element of realism is a little more... real. Forget plastic or cardboard swords, these are legit! Well, blunted legit, anyway. Check out "The Battle of the Nations," an internationl Martial Arts competition that tests both a man's honor, and his skills in the lost art of sword fighting. Also see a Skype with one of the epic participants!
