    I'm fairly sure after reading the law, he's full of crap -

    I see that we can't own or manufacture cane swords. I'm glad I haven't seen any kenjutsuka using those. It would be terrible if we were actually breaking a law.

    PC does make that lovely Zatoichi model. :wink:

    Of course, I can just see someone bringing that to a dojo for iai practice.

    I think the idea is that you can't sneak up on people with a sword as well as you can with lipstick. A woman could pull a knife out of her lipstick and shank me without me realizing it, but it's a lot harder to miss someone running around waving a sword.

    Hey Zendetta,
    Thanks,

    Yes. Yoshinari Miyata, Hachi- Dan, Hanshi. I have known him & been practicing with him on and off for over 15 years. Thanks tho. I currently pratice with him about once a week. There are actually quite a few good kendo sensei in the bay area. US Team members, Matsuda, Nishimoto, Minami, Onitsuka, Eitoku ...and others.
    Miyata sensei is getting up there in years, I think he's just over ~80 and he still puts on his armour, gets out there and whails on people.

    FirdaysUZB, make an introduction thread in Newbietown ( who you are, training, time, where,etc...).
    Then write some additional info on your previous post about your teacher and how he teaches classes.

    Welcome to Bullshido.
