speaking of swords...anyone uses it as a weapon?? if they do kendo???
i'm gonna start it sometime soon....

I use my broadsword for making coleslaw as part of my jousting and sword play. Decapitating cabbages and pumpkins and the like on horseback, its a lot of fun and it takes very little force to make them explode on impact even with the blunted blade that the battleready ones like mine have!

Imagine what a sharp one would do!

I am going to be doing some re-enactment swordfight stuff soon with broadswords.

In the dojo we have been training with bokken [and jo vs bokken] for some time now and I find it really enjoyable. It's one of my favourite weapons.

Haven't tried kendo, the only local club is more than an hour and a half drive away and would take up too much of my valuable MA time to get there and back.

I have two personal favorites. Hard style favorite would have to be the Sai. They bring me in a little closer than I would necessarily like to be to defend against a long bladed weapon but when I think about it, I would rather be closer to the hilt than out on the edge of the blade.

Soft style, it would have to be the Yang spear. It has a good reach and can be used as both a bladed or a blunt striking weapon. The red tassle on the end provides just enough of a distraction to give you a slight edge.

There are a few others I really like but those two would be my favorites.

lol..we at my school we do ALOT of styles..and at a higher rank they tend 2 pull u in a certain style and train u fully in u have basics at others...and master 1 or 2...
so i recently started kendo, and the basics seem pretty straight forward 2 me, i think it's something that i'd really like, so maybe it MAY BE a favourite in some years 2 come...but escrimas.....will always be 1st

i dont have any formal traing, but my favorites are katana, bokken, bo-staff, and throwing stars. I like the katana simply because of all the hard work put forth to make a high-quality one. Bokken i like because it can be used as a sword, but is safer to train with, plus training with it also trains me for the katana. I like the bo-staff because of its many uses, for fighting and not. Throwing stars i simply like because they hurt the opponent before they get close enough to hurt you.

i guess i didn't see this earlier, i guess it's to late to take my post back, well any way i guess a reverse blade sword (don't like to cut open any one i guess it's closest in using a reverse blade and using regualr sword but on it's blunt side).

they're a very touch subject here. you should buy an Iaito. they're blunt and won't cut your arm off.
Go seek the advise of a qualified instructor.
