Military Review

Why would a man need a sword

128
Even in the recent past, boys in Russia have been trained since birth to ensure that they are future warriors, defenders of their families, communities and lands of their entire people. They absorbed the fighting qualities, almost from the cradle. So they laid the core, which determined their character and their whole future fate. From early childhood, boys were taught to arms. Although their children's swords were made of solid wood, their weight and shape almost matched iron ones. There were also wooden spears, knives, bows with arrows, shields. Chronicles describe cases when teenagers were skillfully used to protect them from enemies. The knife was with a man almost from early childhood. Many of the children, especially of the nobility, in their adolescence received their first military weapons: swords, knives, hatchets. At the age of three, the boy receives the time of the next initiation - “landing a horse”. It was a beautiful custom, a celebration for the whole community.




And in various children's games such skills as quick reaction, dexterity, balancing with one's body, the ability to evade an abandoned object and even intercept a spear or an arrow on the fly developed. Fistfight or wall-to-wall fights were a common manifestation of daring valiant in Russia until the 20 century. Such upbringing is still preserved among the Caucasian peoples. Boys are engaged in wrestling, various martial arts, dzhigitovka. They are brought up in honoring their elders and observing the national traditions of their people. Boys to 3-5 years do not depart from a loving mother, and after they must raise a father in severity.

It is a pity that these traditions are almost forgotten today in modern Russia. Numerous wars, revolutions and subsequent events have caused irreparable damage to the best gene pool of our country. How many famous and even more unknown brave heroes and patriots of their country sacrificed themselves for the victory over the enemy. But these were the best people, the flower of the nation, warriors. They could raise and raise excellent offspring, but instead they burned in tanks, went to the ram, closed the embrasure of the pillbox, blew up enemy equipment with them.

These losses are still reflected in the demographic gaps of the unborn generation, the decline of morality and the loss of education, which made men boys. In modern Russia, men are more often brought up by women - at home, in kindergarten, in schools and universities. In the field of education, women work almost everywhere, there are a large number of single-parent families, and in full families the man-father is often present only formally. And for the boy, ideally, it should be the father and closest associates: grandfather, brother, teacher, coach. However, the reality is that a boy at preschool age, when the foundations of his behavior are laid, is not surrounded by men at all. As a result of a lack of masculinity, men ceased to be warriors. Generations of infantile, weak-tempered males, unable to protect a girl or even themselves, have grown up.

Already repeatedly in news stories about fires showed us how modern "men" act. They leave their children or the whole family in fire and smoke, to escape alone. And then they will have to live with this, to look their friends and relatives in the eyes. But it's good that there are still real men who are not afraid to enter a burning house and save people from the fire, sometimes even at the cost of their lives. So, recently, during an attack on school students in Buryatia, 17-year-old Davyd Mamonov carried out a bleeding girl, and then blocked the path of a distraught ninth-grader. Not every adult dares to do this, but he could. This has already happened when, in a critical situation or in a war, some of the men wake up the ancestral memory of a warrior, and then they have no equal in battle.

Sweetheart

Mother told me that when she was at a late term of pregnancy, she always dreamed of a fish, a red swordtail. It was a dream that he jumps out of the aquarium, and mother picks it up from the floor with her hands and plants it back. This is how the “swordtail” was born a little earlier than the deadline set by nature.

How to handle the checker, he did not know. After the death in the military hospital of his elderly father, his mother found her father’s souvenir saber in the back of the closet. And now for the first time he holds in his hands a piece of soft metal with a beautifully minted handle, in black wooden sheath covered with leather. My father was in the Cossack society of the district kuren and secretly from his mother, on a pension stash, he was able to buy himself a piece of parade. In addition to the souvenir pieces, his father had a ceremonial "Circassian" with gas-plugs, chrome boots, a hat and a real dagger with the inscription KKV (Kuban Cossack army). Having inherited such an arsenal of cold weapons, he decided that it would be nice to be able to handle him. He was no longer so young to start learning, but not so old as to lose interest in something new. After reviewing a lot of videos on the Internet on the theme “Flashing the sword”, he chose the videos of Olga Korogodskaya. She lucidly and in great detail explained the technique of felling and interceptions, complex rotations and movements with a sword. For the beginning of independent training, this was enough.

During the lunch break, he succeeded in flanking on the territory of the destroyed buildings in the industrial zone of the enterprise and on weekends in the morning on the deserted bank of the river. He was not afraid of problems with the police, because he had a certificate for the souvenir drafts, and in his pocket was a hunter certificate with the right to wear cold weapons. Regular training was not in vain, and after six months he acquired not only abrasions and corns, but also a good skill with the sword. I wanted something more.

Soon, on the Internet, a military officer’s checker (sample 1881 of the year) was ordered from the master gunsmith Dmitry (Kitovras). Without combat sharpening and in some other parameters, it was not a melee weapon. The real piece was longer than the souvenir and harder, but soon hands got used to this weapon. The movements became regular and smooth. Even without a combat sharpening with a sword, it was easy to cut a half-liter plastic bottle filled with water or a thin branch. The main thing was the speed and direction of impact. With the right chop, the saber must make a characteristic whistle.

During training, when something was already beginning to turn out, he listened to his own feelings. The cossack combat piece polished to glitter was already a familiar weight in the hand, and there was still a feeling of the right moment that was hard to explain. The muscles of the forearms and shoulders pleasantly buzzed after a workout. Thoughts acquired the right move and some solemn high ground, displacing unnecessary fuss. I remembered the forgotten feeling from childhood, when, as boys, with wooden swords, they fought before the first blood with the older boys of their yard. Or maybe it was even earlier, in the dormant generic memory of his ancestors. Father would love that. He felt like a man, a sword, a warrior.


In fact, it is not so important what you are fond of. Let it be pinball, airsoft, boxing, wrestling, shooting, fencing or flanking a sword. These are all just tools for sharpening the male character. It is important that by removing the boxing gloves, putting the weapon after shooting or hiding a sword in the scabbard, you keep the same rod. Remember that a man is a warrior, a swordtail.

Protect your women, put in place insolent, be intolerant of the enemy.

Live according to your conscience and fear only your own cowardice.

    Good topic. The world elites are quite satisfied with the society of pacifist pofigists, impunity hooligans. Neither of them is capable of defending their homeland. ... Enemies on the borders are quite real, numerous and "without sentimentality" - they will come and will kill. And in our country all programs are crammed with "humanism," "tolerance." Physical education lessons in educational institutions can soon be videotaped and clowning shown at competitions: the main thing is that you don’t break something or scratch something - otherwise the prosecutor’s office! Camping with children is just a legal extreme for the teacher.
    The time now is such that the whole country should be paramilitary and, above all, children - otherwise they will "devour".

      cit ... "otherwise the prosecutor's office!" or zugunder for self-defense or protection of their loved ones

      in our courtyard a drunken goat beat a girl - father ran out - intervened for his daughter - heaped a goat - so the goat called the police because of bodily harm to the goat - it even started
      so the inquirer - another — or rather a goat — said to his father - "what are you going to do with your fists right away - you had to try to reason the victim with words"

      What is it like ?

          Women should not be offended. Do you feel like a man? Or a thug? Then write it right - skins say ...
          Alas, the guys who write us laws and organize law enforcement, he’s not cowards. They do this for other reasons. They want power, and more and more, such is their nature. And the easiest way to gain more power is to make sure that all the people around you ... go down. Bent over. Lost courage. Then you can not just rule them, you can own them. What is being done.
          And then the war smelled ... real ... Ay-ah! What to do then, huh ?!

    What the author described was in Russia before Christianity. These are Christians, relying on the princes and their Polovtsian and Danish mercenaries * baptized * RUSSIA destroying even the memory of the past. Christianization ended under the Romanovs.
    In the RUSSIAN EMPIRE, very few had the right to weapons, firearms or cold weapons. And yet, steel blades were forged in Russia for a long time and exported abroad, * Dopetrovsk * RUSSIA sent to the west and cast guns and barrels for tweeters. The enslavement of people went along with baptism, but the slaves did not * have weapons *. That is the truth.

      In the Russian Empire, there was free circulation of weapons for everyone. The restrictions applied only to the border regions and the Caucasus, and even then they did not concern the hunting guns.

        You would think that in those centuries, iron in Europe was free. Yes, there were times that iron was worth more than gold. But not all iron is steel, not all steel is a weapon. You can stick it off like that. And what can I say, go against the club with a sword, it is not known who will win, but usually with the club won.

        for sure, most of the population never held a weapon in their hands. and even later in the Russian Empire a small percentage of the population was recruited into the army, though for a very long time. and only from the end of the 19th century did military service become a mass phenomenon.

        Yes, the law on weapons, self-defense, and in general all legislation that gives a legislatively fixed opportunity for the same peasants to protect their families and their loved ones, is lousy in the thoughts of years, if I'm not mistaken, 10, if not more

        that’s disgusting, they make it in all rumors that they need to be the defender of their loved ones, articles about swordsmen are scattered - and by law - no way down - and then the criminal case with all the consequences

        community for those who piled on their loved ones - and the law - no way! and then a criminal case (may bi - administrative) with all that it implies

        so it turns out - from childhood, women spread rot - don’t go there, there are big boys or bad uncles - they hit you (with different options) - and you become an adult - you have a criminal code for wort - do not touch bad uncles - you will already hurt them - but this is not necessary - it is necessary with those who threaten the life and health of your loved ones - with words and persuasion - as the goat-investigator said

          the vast majority of those who use weapons do not protect anything but their desires and show-offs. Often armed are those who cannot stand up for themselves without weapons, but burst with ambition.
          And the weapon in protecting the family is usually not a machine gun or a gun, but something domestic like a fixture, a baton or a knife. There are, of course, old women who carry a butterfly knife in their handbags, but usually citizens are extremely weakly armed and even run the risk of being held accountable.

              I had to kill with my bare hands two dogs like you, pontorez, which were set against me. Not only do breeders torture animals with life in the city,
              so usually the whole district is still zas_rana and many dogs are raised so that they create big problems for neighbors, or even just a life threat.
              Having a dog is often a very bad idea. I hope that we will have Western laws, according to which it is possible to rigidly bend fans to get wildlife.
              I like dogs, but when they are kept outside the city, where they are healthy, they are normally fed, cared for and kept not for aggression against people, but for protection or hunting, or just socializing within the family.

                      the problem of our country - under Khrushchev, responsibility for low-quality labor was canceled. With the legislation of dogs, everything is not going smoothly even now - I personally think that dogs need to be monitored by social services. Watch in what conditions they live, regularly have a physical examination, and only based on the results of the examination make a decision on the obligatoriness of the muzzle.
                      Although I have negative experience, I do not at all support the decision that it should be hung on all dogs of a certain height.
                      There are fewer lapdogs that need a muzzle than a hefty rottweiler.

          If a thief immediately declares that he does not encroach on your life, but only on your property, then even having a weapon for self-defense (which can be a rather serious shotgun, which must be taken out of the safe and then equipped with cartridges), you have no right to do anything. You can protect only your life and that with reservations. Stand with a boar and a body kit and watch how a thief encloses your hut m - everything is legal!

        Likewise, a shovel will not help fly a combat fighter, shoot from anti-aircraft missile systems and produce torpedo volleys from under water.
        Need to look wider. A man must be courageous, and a woman feminine. And now it is often the opposite with us. Women sleepers tossing and turning on the railway, and the boss walks the effeminate man. And as it is known from philosophy, being determines consciousness. And it turns out as in the article:
        Generations of infantile, weak-minded males have grown up, unable to protect a girl or even herself, her beloved.

        Do you have the skills of marking sniper rifle shooting? A sniper is a special preparation, not everyone is given. But the work with an ax and a hammer brings up the creator, otherwise they survived, already we call the crane to change the master - damn men!

        it’s difficult to come up with self-defense using a sniper rifle. Is that the butt.
        As for the machine, you can take not demanding skills. There is a choice.
        besides why do you need well-aimed shooting even from a machine gun? If you are threatened, it is unlikely that this is from afar.

    In general, the author raised an interesting topic. good For example, in Soviet times, small things were the most popular type of weapon. How many hunters and athletes did they love and respect? winked How many of them later became snipers skills sharpened by small things helped them a lot good But in our time, small things equated to rifled need 5 years of experience request the absurdity of the situation is that 366 tkm and higher are allowed and the weaker 22 lr are prohibited lol

      I agree with you. Laws are written by people, you can write a law and allow small things. But probably just those people who live on the principle of “No matter what happens” got into the deputies, and real men are engaged in male work and do not want to sleep on tables during meetings. Israel is impressed with this plan. There, all those in power went through a military school, fought, risked their lives, and ultimately, much less petty "exile."

      In Soviet times, small things were also only in clubs and hunters. You are confusing something. Nowadays, you can own a gun, but it will be stored in a dash and will be given to you only when shooting. Hotheads also want to ban pneumatics. You do not confuse with pneumatics? Duc and for her in the USSR it was not long to sit down, for the little things it was 100% landing, only hunters and athletes.

They write that somewhere until the 57th year they sold freely, like sports equipment, then - on a hunting ticket, but they did not record it on the ticket, and in the 68th everything rifled was banned.

    But you don’t have to lie that everyone in Russia since childhood was raised by warriors, carried weapons and went through a “horse-riding” ceremony. The society was divided: some plowed for the prince, others robbed for him or defended the loot. The militias gathered, but they were of quality were lower than professional warriors. And why? Not only because of the worse quality of weapons and armor, but also because his dad taught him to grow rye from childhood, and not to hang around on military campaigns. Therefore, do not hang up noodles here, that everyone was like good knights for selection. There wasn’t any mention of that. Yes in It is just as it was now (that is, people always come across different, in any historical era), just technological progress has gone a long way and society has become more multi-ethnic, nationalities are mixed up. That's all the differences. And as it happens before. then amuse yourself with fairy tales that there were times, and now it’s useless with upbringing.

    In the RUSSIAN EMPIRE, very few had the right to weapons, firearms or cold weapons. And yet, steel blades were forged in Russia for a long time and exported abroad, * Dopetrovsk * RUSSIA sent to the west and cast guns and barrels for tweeters. The enslavement of people went along with baptism, but the slaves did not * have weapons *. That is the truth.


    Gentlemen are good! For God's sake! Do not touch the questions of faith in the bustle! No matter what, except for various sectarians, Satanists and other misanthropists.
    In the military tradition - do not touch the faith, it is not in vain that the people say that we all walk under God, it was in Christian times before and after! The same Horde, in any interpretation, as Russia ironed, but did not ruin the temples, and did not destroy the ministers, although they were Gentiles! The point is not Christianization, but the monopolization of power in a narrow circle. He really needs slaves, it’s easier to control them, and a warrior nation always has its own dignity, and will not allow itself to be manipulated. And if he agreed to be a slave ... It's like during the Second World War in the occupied territory, someone sat and waited, "when ours will come", and someone in the partisans, and in the young guard, and whatever, but to fight until victory!

    The nobility class, which was a couple of percent of the population, trained with weapons. Well, more Cossacks, yes. And the remaining 95% of the population - peasants and philistines, did not have swords and did not own them, and preferred fencing to fencing, and to a sword - a cattle, an ax or a club

    Well, since nobles were massively expelled from the country in 1917, it is incorrect to say that these fencing traditions are traditions of “our ancestors”

        Feudal fragmentation in Russia was, I do not argue, but there was a core - several central principalities, which had one ruler with a total population of more than three million, they could well expose 30 warriors only.

    In fact, it is not so important what you are fond of. Let it be pinball, airsoft, boxing, wrestling, shooting, fencing or flanking a sword. These are all just tools for sharpening the male character. It is important that by removing the boxing gloves, putting the weapon after shooting or hiding a sword in the scabbard, you keep the same rod. Remember that a man is a warrior, a swordtail.
    Protect your women, put in place insolent, be intolerant of the enemy.
    Live according to your conscience and fear only your own cowardice.


    Hmm. Fencing and flanking with a checker - and you are a MAN. Start a family, raise children and put them on their feet. House built. Help the elderly parents. Nonsense is all that. Here to wave a saber fake or shoot balls at each other - yes. This is power. Author, are you raving? Or festive alcohol writes for you.

      No, picking up the checker you are not yet a MAN, because sitting down at a computer you are not a programmer yet.
      This is just a tool for self-improvement.

    If I give luli a boor in a public transport that offends a woman, then I am XNUMX% sure that they will send me for a prison sentence. Yes, and this woman herself rolls a cart against me. There were already precedents. So far, laws against real fighters and defenders are working. Therefore, sit and calmly watch how they kill, beat and insult before your eyes. Full tin. In Europe it’s even worse. I know firsthand. Shields against defenders. It’s sad. We have to start reptiles around the corner, sort out the fast and quickly disappear. Only such a method remained.

          Shake who's stopping you, but you demand the right to kill. No one threatens the woman physically; besiege the bully in a word, make him attack first. Remember, the right to kill, including criminals, will have it.

    Live by conscience? The Russian Federation has chosen capitalism with its concepts such as “man to man is a wolf”, “deceive until you have been deceived”, and most importantly - profit at all costs. I see it every day. What is conscience here? But to live in society and to be free from it is impossible, as you know. So how to live in good conscience?

      And to live according to conscience, it is so that it is not a shame for children and relatives to look into their eyes. So that for you it was not a problem to choose between money and honor, between friends and betrayal. And honest merchants have been in Russia before, under "capitalism" so to speak))

    "Even in the recent past, boys in Russia from birth have been preparing for the fact that they are future warriors, defenders of their family, community and the land of their entire people. They absorbed fighting qualities, almost from the cradle." - a fantastic start !!!!!!!!!!! There is no point in reading! Dear site, maybe stop publishing Fantasy already ?? Which Russia? Source author indicate? Was he such a dream? Until the 1867th century, the vast majority of Russians were serf cattle. They taught them martial arts from childhood))) "Mother Russia"! This is the same "theme" as the ancient Ukrainians "... Fantasy in a sore brain or prophetic dreams ... It has nothing to do with history - purely fantastic propaganda))

    From early childhood, boys were accustomed to weapons. Although their children’s swords were made of hard wood, their weight and shape almost corresponded to iron.

    The density of the hardest types of wood - larch, oak, in the wet state 800kg / m3, after drying, even lower, the density of steel 7850kg / m3.
    I think it’s clear that a sword in a shape similar to an iron one will weigh 10 times less.
    Just beautiful fairy tales without facts.

      As a fact, I can attach a nunchaku, made from the legs of a Soviet TV, dangerous even now.

      I will not say how many swords, bows and all sorts of things were in my childhood, at first my father and uncles did, then myself. I’ll make the slingshot slaughter the one in the store, and I know where you can still get balls!

    Greetings. The question about Men's education is certainly interesting (alas, I myself was brought up by mother and grandmother - my father left us ...) - but not fundamental. There was nothing stopping me from going and issuing a permit for weapons (a 12K tactical pump and semiautomatic device) and training weekly (1 or 2 times) in Home / Selfdefense ... Injury in / in Ukraine is difficult to arrange trochs (journalists or law enforcement officers have the right to make a right) but and it’s not mine ... To defend oneself or not - everyone must decide for himself ... Let three judge better than bear four ...
    P.S. Alas, there is an experience of shooting at living nonhumans ... Regards.

    It is written beautifully. But essentially nonsense. What are the swords in the village? What kind of horses? The author does not confuse Slavic farmers with which nomadic herders? No, well, 1% of the nobles was probably available. And it is necessary.
    It seems to me that the Russians were strong were a community. Otherwise, it would not survive in our climate. It is more than a sword than a shield than any weapon at all. Later, of course, the Dereyen community began to impede progress and had to abandon it. But instead, other communities were organized. We are used to living like that. Therefore, moral factors played a very important role. Well, it was indecent not to drop 5 kopecks. to the cash desk of the bus. Well, etc. .
    This is what we are trying hard to knock out of us. Try to split. They try to drive into the unnatural framework of stupid laws.

    In modern Russia, men are more often brought up by women


    in modern Russia, men are educated legally, or rather, they do everything so that the boy does not grow up a man and becomes a hysterical woman. Any manifestation and attempt to lead a man is punished legally, they take away any right to weapons and they teach at school not to work with wood or on a machine but to cut out applications from paper with the girls.
    Any attempt by a father to raise his son instantly translates into a statement to the police and juvenile organs. The family’s institute is actually trampled and the man is put in the position "your business is to give loot and shut up the rest."

    What kind of a sword and horse is it since childhood, if several generations have already grown that are not able to hold a hammer in their hands, and indeed everything is harder than your own ... on.

    About the "when it was the Cossacks plow", so after all professional warriors did not plow. A tenth of the men in the settlement carried military duties, and the rest went to the militia only in the event of war. The whole settlement helped the warrior families, highlighting food, etc.
    Here, in the North Caucasus and on Don, the rite of "landing a horse" is observed by the Cossacks, strong traditions!

    But where were the men when the shopping center in Kemerovo was on fire? How did they throw 41 baby, not counting the women and saved their pampered ones ....?
    Why did they abandon everyone and run away cowardly?
