1) "Wow... soon the way of the samurai and all martial arts will be banned."
In 16th century Japan, Toyotomi Hideyoshi went so far as to confiscate every single sword in Japan not owned by a samurai or daimyo (lord).
Known as the Haitorei Edict, during the Meiji Period and Restoration (1868-1912), the social class of samurai was abolished, banning non-government officials from carrying swords. A Sword Hunt followed leading to the confiscation of all weapons and swords in Japan by the government.

In Japan after the swords were confiscated the peons adapted techniques for using ordinary agricultural implements and other tools as weapons
