no.

Like with all MA training it is best to learn from a good instructor.

You'll progress faster and learn correct technique. Plus with your instructors eyes watching you, he/she will be able to sort out mistakes before they become bad habits.

And should you ever get your hands on a real sword, you won't cut various limbs off of yourself or others...

If you were learning from a proper instructor you shouldn't have to "see what you are aiming for".

Part of good instruction is to show what the end result should be.

So again, please seek out a qualified instructor before you hurt yourself or someone else. I'm glad its a bokken you are playing with and not with a shinken.

everyone above is correct, you should get proper instruction if you want to use a bokken correctly. try and find an Iaido dojo near you where you can study. i'm sorry i don't know any sites.

Iaido is the japanese art of 'drawing the sword' which is about drawing your sword faster than you opponent disabling or killing them faster - bit like a gun-draw thing in the wild west. it has been used in its present form for about 400 years now making it one of the oldest martial arts still practised. it is similar, if not, what the samurai used as they're style in sword-fighting.

i will warn you that Iaido takes years to perfect and is no something that can be rushed. there is usually no sparring and the lessons are mostly doing katas/ forms. and you should never use or really even touch are proper shinken (a katana with fully sharpened blade) until sensei tells you unless you don't mind losing your fingers lol!!

i hope this helps. i'm also going to guess that you learn kobudo as part of your karate training by the list of weapons you have given.

thank you for that!! but no...my sensia does not like to teach weapons in full classes!! i have never brought a weapon... all my weapons are from over instructures and friends!! i have learnt the nunchuku and sai by taking them to my instructure privatley!! as for the tonfa i learnt that of my own back!!!

i have tooken my boken to my instructure.....but i would just like some videos on the boken!! as karate is a "empty hand sport" my sensai does not belive in teaching weapons!!
