The Race was the oldest of the Mantis' dueling traditions. It was a race aboard small kobune between two samurai originated in the main shipyard of the Clan, as a chance to practice their craft and show off their skills while at the same time engage in a leisure activity. Years later kobune races became a formal means to settle disputes, and sometimes attacks against their rival was permited. The Mantis Clan Champion soon had to ban this dangerous practice, althoug its original form remained. [1]
