If my 10 year old spoke like you she would sit in seiza for a week straight. That shows a lack of discipline and you need alot of that for Iaido

So your 10 years old and you have been training with bokkens for "5 years?"

And you CAN'T find one without a sharpened blade.

That about sum it up?

Ok???????

My best advice would be to ask the person training you with the bokken--maybe they have an idea?

Or maybe they have a spare unsharpened blade you can use.

Or you might save up your allowence and put toward training.

Sorry, thought since the last post was mine and I asked him about his training.

His next post was a response to mine. And since he did not label to whom h ewas speaking, thought it was him jacking around.

If it was my mistake, sorry.

This is why you need proper training. You need to learn from a teacher.

If you buy an iaito for your size, you'll probably need to get a new one each year as you grow.

i would advise the exact same as the others, and thats to WAIT. if you are inexperienced with a sword it would be easy for you to make a mistake and hurt your younger siblings (which i presume you dont WANT to.. lol). and a bokken is a good weapon as well as a great training tool. musashi himself ended up shunning swords all togeather and only used wooden swords, sometimes even making the said bokken from a tree branch or a boat oar carved quickly. WAITING is the best advice that can be given.
