How do i actually USE this thing??!

Post by Shadowkin » Thu Apr 28, 2011 9:07 pm

so i bought a sword (wooden, i like having fingers) its basically a katana, but how do i learn to use it
which martial arts are out there that are fully sword based that i can learn easily, i doubt things like kendo and fencing would be useful in actual sword fighting since they are pretty sport orientated right? anyways what do you think guys.

theres a few dvd,s at blades you might purchase that might help theres also a section on the forum
called fudoshin dojo that might be of help alltho its not been used in a while one of the martial arts
fans might be along to help its just a case of patience till some one turns up

Hi Shadow,
you have the right idea keep safe !!.

If you cant get to a dojo to train or get DVD`s and books try youtube the wooden sword in the shape of a katana is a bokken here is a couple of youtubes I hope they are of help .... these are by no means the best way by any stretch of imagination but they will give a little idea of how they are used if you need more type in youtube search bokken

aye shadowkin
haveing a laugh with friends and forumites makes this forum a nicer place to be
for sure as long as folkes dont take umbrage at folkes ribbing each other if it dose
then of course we,ll all have to tone it down a little
