hey guys, I'm just doin' a survey. I was woundering what school of swordsmanship would you rather practice? European Fencing or Kendo? Both arts have their strong points, but just for the record, I perfer Kendo!

Regarding which style of Fencing? There is Saber Epee and Foil. Each with very distinct and different styles.

Well there is a sword arts forum. So this will probably be moved there pretty soon...

I don't really care for fencing (of any kind, Japanese or European) so I wouldn't do either.

I don't do fencing, however with our jousting we also do European style broadsword fighting, so we get to hack up cabbages and pumpkins as well as have the odd melee style battle from horseback.

I'd go for broadsword over kendo because I love making coleslaw!

We also do a fair bit of bokken vs bokken and bokken vs jo in our MA training which I really enjoy.

I can't stand foil fencing so I'll say kendo. Never tried saber.

what's wrong with foil? and if you haven't tried saber you're missing out...

I'm just used to cutting, so I bet I would like saber a lot more.

As a matter of fact, I used to fence - Epee'. I only took 3 kendo lessons but hurt my R knee from too many fencing lunges. Kendo would be better. Also in a realsword fight between katana & rapier, the rapier is faster but the Daito is more deadly. Choose kendo for the same reason.
