I agree 100% on the weapons side. I didn't really state that I guess as I got off on the unarmed tangent a bit.

On a happier note, I will be going Saturday to visit a well established Sword class

Actually knowing that these guys were all highly ranked bothers me less.

Sure there needs to be a standard and yes they all should be on the same page.

But after many years people's arts tend to get a bit ideosyncratic, they tend to get the same place in slightly different ways.

Brand new BB on the other hand, the tendency is to follow a ridged "this is how its done" kinda plan.

(Please note I said "tendency" I certainly don't mean "everyone" here. )

I fully agree however that the teachers all need to be more or less on the same page.

In actual training avoid being overly theoretical or technical. As this will create a weakness.

Well, I visited a Nakamura Ryu class on Saturday, and will visit a Mugai Ryu class on Wednesday barring any surprises. It was interesting to see and handle the swords and iaitios that are in use at the dojo.

I imagine that I'll be more into the Mugai Ryu as it is more formal and traditional. Since I won't be carrying a sword around for SD on a daily basis, the formality and tradition appeals to me. Of course I realize that this is also an effective art in the sense that it has been tried and tested in times when swords were actually used.

There are a lot of principles that should enhance my unarmed training in either art
