Well, as for the "crack your noodle" I know. I meant if the are your RIVAL. If you want to seriously injure not kill an opponent. And the last samurai was an awesome movie. Most of the gunmen were ignorant farmers but an awesome movie.

I think this is actually a "Fukuro Shinai" or "Bag Shinai" though it looks not the same as most others I`ve seen do. A Fukuro Shinai is a Shinai which is clothed within leather.
More common Shinai are for example here:
(As you can see its bamboparts have the shape of the normal shinai)

or here:
(Here is what can be under the "bag")

Oh, I searched for a further Photo of a Fukuro Shinai made by Tim Bathurst, who makes (under Grandmaster Hatsumi´s authority) the training weapons for the Bujinkan. I know they are really good, but unfortunately, the Site is closed up to August. But I found another interesting link:

Here`are Fukuro Shinai of Yagyu-Style:

Personally, I'd prefer to fight them with a fencing epee, unarmored except for a mask. That would leave them quite bruised up and probably bleeding in a few places, but wouldn't kill 'em.

Well if you want to go to jail for agravated assault with a weapon then I don't see why a bokken is any better than a stick or a lead pipe because this is essentially whats gonna happen if you fight your "RIVAL" with intention of hurting them. That is assuming that you win the fight and are not the one that gets all messed up (which incidently will most likely happen anyway if they are even worth being called a "rival").

All right dj, I'll assume you are well versed in the law. But then again, if this makes no sense to you...think it's about honor. I am not a typical idiot who throws lead pipes around. I am studying the code of the samurai. I don't follow every rule though. Anyway I want an opponent to rue the day he fought me. Oh, and does anyone know of truly great swordsmen in the japanese style. I might go try to learn a thing or two.

In my town it's not rare for people to carry some type of wooden weapon with them (never a real one) and quite often people will setlle conflicks it's interesting to be a part of and to watch there's rule's and even a judge when two people wanna fight there has to be a third person present to judge the match and declare the winner and make sure no one cheat's there's many way's to the battle 1. dis arm your aponent 2. break your aponent's weapon 3.wear your aponent out to the point were they cant fight any more 4.or the one that most people try to avoid if your aponent get's injured bad enough the fight is stoped right away so no one is badly hurt the cop's around here dont even bother iterveening in battle's beacuse they know how well organized they are and how rare it is that some one get's badly hurt i asked one cop one time why they let everyone do this and he said "its better for people to settle conflicts with wooden weapon's then to have them go around and shoot eachother with gun's" that make's alot of sense to me of course im not condoning going out there and fighting people with any kind of weapon but it is a non lethal way to fight and make sure that it stay's non lethal.

According to your profile you're located in Aldergrove, British Columbia. Do you mean to tell me that the police allow folks to beat the tar out of each other with sticks where you are?

Can one of our Canadian members speak to this?

Wow! When you tell a story, you sure make it a GOOD one.

Love to hear about the size of the last fish you caught.

Of COURSE its "no joke."

Full on stick fighting, sans pads, masks, gloves occurs EVERYWHERE and "ALL THE TIME."

And of COURSE "the cops don't care" why should they care about armed assault which puts folks in the hospital?

That would be "wink-wink" "nudge-nudge"
