As I noted in my Q&A post, Tak Sakaguchi was asked about a fight he had with a bear, and he decided to reenact it with fellow actor Arata Yamanaka after the screening of Yakuza Weapon. Not only that, but the Q&A actually opened up with a short sword fight between the two actors, which was pretty awesome. Hit the jump to see these two videos! All major camera movement is due to my clapping. Most minor camera movement is caused by the brand new camera lens I had bought earlier that day and lacked image stabilization. Regardless, the quality is still quite good. Check below, damn it!

Here is the sword fight between Sakaguchi and Yamanaka:
