Yes, buy a dictionary. There are many Kenjitsu and Kendo tapes that you can buy online to give you some ideas. Try a kata with four points. Forward, reverse, right side and left side with matching techniques at all four points. Start by showing respect to your weapon by kneeling and bowing to the blade, finish your kata with rei too. Boken is spelled bokken....good luck.
