Them "Humm?"

I would definitely say it is full contact, that gets more of the people who will stay after they realize sometimes hits hurt.

Also, if they say they wouldn't have fun with it, or aren't the violent type, or something similar, ask them if they ever hit their friends with the fake swords in toys r us and places like that. I asked about 10 people that and no one denied it. Then I could get them to come out and hit their friends with our swords.

Don't emphasize the 20-1 ratio to anyone. Most girls don't actually want to be surrounded by that many guys, and guys don't want to actually hear that ratio.
