    Did it, perhaps, come from one of these?



    If so then you only have a small part of a large puzzle and there is still much work to be done.

    LOL, Thanks all.

    So far apparently no right answers.

    I have been furnished withy a morsel of additional info:

    Everyone who participated was given one of these by the sensei, & shown how to use it to improve their sword skills
    Those who attended now claim to be skilled in its use.

    Google is useless so i can only assume that they have all sewn "Welcome" into it and made it part of their home entering ceremony.

    Are you supposed to throw it into the air and neatly slice it in two as it falls?

    Perhaps to reveal a fortune-cookie-like note of wisdom?

    Is it one of these fabric pieces?


    They attach them to Chinese swords, for reasons that differ depending on who you ask, including:
    -distracting the opponent from the blade itself
    -counterbalancing the weapon
    -having a cleaning rag always available for the blade
    -ID badge by color

    Just to buck the trend, I'm going to give a serious try at it:

    Grab it by the edge, and flap it up and down to develop grip/forearms?
