Tokyo’s Castle Tintagel, named after an English castle associated with the legend of King Arthur, teaches students how to fight like the European knights of the 14th and 15th centuries, in both armored and unarmored combat. It now also runs a class teaching Bushido — the way of the samurai. The medieval style of fighting, which involves a variety of weapons such as swords, pole axes, daggers and spears, is commonly known as buhurt and has a niche but devoted following around the world, particularly in Eastern Europe. Rules vary and so can the number of fighters, with some competitions pitting teams of 100 or more against each other in one wild, brutal free-for-all. Clearly, it is not for the faint-hearted.
