Dose anyone know any where that sells deacent (won't fall apart if you accidently knock it) blunt swords? (I'm in the uk so needs to be uk based or ok 2 export)
The Kobudo (and higher dan gradings in my JJ style) include some weapons training, more out of historical/intrest than any practical use, & i am struggling to find a blunt one, as most half decent are sharpened which is not a good plan when training in a room with up to 30 other people, and probably not good near mats.

Do they have to be metal or wood?
For blunt metal drawing sword look for a solid Iaido http://www.e-bogu.com/ has some good ones.
For wood http://www.bokkenshop.com get a white booken one.
BTW. Kobudo is used to refer to Okinawan Weapons. What weapons are you learning on your Jujutsu style. What is your Jujutsu style?

Want to get a metal one, we have a couple of club bokken's for using in weapon defenses, used one & it's not the same, the weight for one thing."This won't hurt me a bit..." - My training partner.:new_astha

Can't remember later ones but for 2nd Dan u do kata & couple of application for Bo, Sai, Nanchaka & tonfa (I think thatís all) + sword work, 2 longer kata & iai-jistsu, & couple of other bits.
In kobudo Iíve used, Bo, jo, Sai, Nanchaka kama, tonfa & yawarabo (kobotan) later on you cover wassashi, tessen & a couple of other I can think of right now (apologies 4 spelling but anglicised Japanese is not easy when u dyslexic)
I'm Part of the WJJF (World JuJitsu Federation, & yes I know theyíre site is lame)"This won't hurt me a bit..." - My training partner.:new_astha

Why is a Jujutsu Federation doing Okinawan Weapons?
Bo: What Ryu? Or Okinawan Style
Nunchuku: :shakes hard:
Your sword work is Iaijutsu? What Ryu? or is the Kendo Iaido Forms?

They also have a sub section the World JuJitsu Kobudo Organisation,
Part there for the money ti think but i enjoy it so hey
Bo: its just part of the system, the kata are form soem where, one 2 man counters is apparently v old
Nunchku: are there as the get people intrested, best use is to hand to ur oponent & watch them knock them selves out (that said one of my mate has practiced alot & could probably give a reasonable showing) but as i said not serieosly thinking of using in a fight (except possibly the jo, see pool cue comments elsewhere)
We do a little bit of iaijitsu, about 5 diffent set pieces (guessing moves were 'borrowed' from somewhere) another bit is the 8 cuts (happio geri again apologies for spelling)
will get syllibus out 7 tell u details another time
