Walking through the nearby streets the other day I was rather surprised to see a man in a small car park wielding a sword around his head in slow, deliberate yet somewhat menacing movements. Nobody even gave him a second glance - in the UK armed police would have been surrounding him within five minutes.

The sword could have been a fake one but it's glinting in the sun and the effort he seemed to be making suggested otherwise. Maybe they don't have such a big problem with knife crime here. Martial arts with weapons in the street? It's just another day in Korea!
