I'm training in kendo (with a sensei) and i'm thinking of getting the nami katana and learning iaido (self taught as there isnt a dojo locally)

A well made sword is much nicer to look at than a cheap stainless one, so thats people buy them despite not being trained with them, Half of all training is common sense! IMHO 8)

Hmmm. I too don't formally train in sword arts, but i read a lot and after a few months of self training with a bokken of forms i've read i feel able to handle a live blade with great care. I hope to enrole in a Ken Jutsu school so as soon as my leg is on top again.
It is missing the point to think that the martial art is solely in cutting a man down; it is in killing evil. It is in the strategem of killing the evil of one man and giving life to ten thousand

Quite hard? It take a lifetime dude.
I've studied aikido for 12 years, which involves the sword heavily. I also study kendo and iaido. I'm happy with my progress, but omg i have a good 30 years of hard practice yet before i get good.

Excellent, whereabouts? I study MJER in Nottingham as part of Eikoku Roshukai.
