Charter ninja school outcomes are very poor and are doing nothing to close the ninja achievement gap. School choice shouldn’t mean we have to settle for cut-rate ronin wandering around and fighting over lawn carts.

That’s a nice barrow, no wonder half the neighborhood is out to get it.

Never bring a sword to a wheelbarrow fight. Or is it the other way around? I mean, Beavers really should have booked it as soon as the guy drew a blade.

I never assumed he didn’t have a sword.

The owner of the wheelbarrow, who can be seen at the end of the video swooping in to retrieve it, said the damn thing wasn’t up for grabs at all. Rather, it was stolen from her home while she was having a garage sale.

I am just glad the wheelbarrow is ok in all of this. Though it looked more like a wagon to me.

Tai chi sword? Not the moves, those are Florida-jitsu.

Now all they need is a Holocaust Cloak and to join forces, and they’ll be ready to rescue the Princess.

The only shocking thing here is that he only had ONE sword, instead of a whole arsenal of swords and various ninja weapons.

That’s weird, it makes it look like swords are difficult to handle and aren’t light sabers or magic wands. That can’t be right.

Two points of pedantry:
Firstly, that is assuredly not a wheelbarrow, as those are traditionally equipped with at most two wheels. What these gentleman are fighting over is a yard/garden cart/wagon.
Secondly, although the header image and source article imply that the sword being wielded is a Japanese katana, close inspection of the video evidence supports the conclusion that it’s more likely a Chinese jian.
That is all.
