Hola everyone. I recently got a boken, but have no idea where to learn to actually use it! I love the art of swordsmanship, and have done some weapons (mainly working with the bo), but would like to at least learn some basics. I'm in Flagstaff, AZ. Even a good quality video would be a good start. Any advice?

Wow. This thread is so old it has cobwebs. I doubt you'll get a response Bob.

I think that you are right. I just thought that I would give it the old college try! Hope to meet you some day!

Most aikido dojos also teach use of the bokken.
