What inspired you to start training with the sword? What art(s) do you study and how long have you trained? What other arts would you like to try?
I've always loved the japanese blade, but decided to never own one unless 1) it was a real blade, not a wallhanger and 2) I was trained in it's use. When I found out that there was Kenjutsu available in my area, I jumped at the chance.
I've been studying Shinkendo for only 5 months now, but have thoroughly enjoyed the experience so far. If given the chance, I may like to try Kendo and possibly Aikido some time in the future.
