Hello, I am wanting to tech myself the Muso Shinden Ryu style of swordsman ship. There are no dojos near me that teach it, so I wanted to get a book on it, and teach it to myself(I have the disaplen to try it). The book, I was looking at was titled "Iaido Sword : Kamimoto-Ha Techniques of Muso Shinden Ryu"
As for the sword, I have seen on websites the "stealth ninja sword" for like 30$, can I use this sword to practise the art with. here is a link to the sword. I would prefer not to use a bokken, as I have used sharpened steel swords before. http://www.karatedepot.com/wp-sw-09.html
Also, are thre any books that teach you how to train with Sais?
Let me know if this is a good Idea
