Just for information ;)

In Kendo there are no sticks, if you take up the art you will be using Bamboo Shinai With a Tsuba or a Bokken you may also need a Keokogi and Hakama .

Also if you are going to be practicing Kendo why not look into a Japanese open handed Martial Art i.e. Tai Jutsu as you may find it will go hand in hand with your Kendo.

I wish you luck in your training and hope you find a Sensei that will guide you on your pathway.

As Keith (I was going to say Master Mewes as a sign if respect in Martial Arts, but as you are not yet a Master here st TOTJO, I did not want to confuse other members, but know I do have great respect.... ;)....) was suggesting, make sure you check all martial arts available to you in your area...

Some may fit better, than others... I would follow Keith's advice... I have limited knowledge in other styles... I am just a TKD practioner....

Investigate all you can before making a decision...

Good Luck ...

I have nothing to teach you - no new philosophy, no new system, no new path to reality; there is no path to reality any more than to truth. All authority of any kind, especially in the field of thought and understanding, is the most destructive, evil thing. Leaders destroy the followers and followers destroy the leaders. You have to be your own teacher and your own disciple. You have to question everything that man has accepted as valuable, as necessary."~Krishnamurti~

Waste is a concern to me, as is those really rare catastrophic accidents like meteor impact or serious earthquake. I don't leaving behind such toxic waste just because I know it will be contained until after I die.... seems like bad karma manifest. 9. the ocean is pretty big, but its not without its negative environmental impact. 10.

    • 14th century English longbow historical fiction by Bernard Cornwell: Agincourt, Vagabond, 1356, Harlequin and The Archers Tale. Good stories: accurate, gritty, historical. Not that the occasion has ever arisen, but I would not use a bow in a close quarters fight as shown in the drinking table scenario in the video; rather, a blade. My Hun ancestors used a particular kind (mounted) composite bow.

    • seeking further insight and other perspectives (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • Quote: "A stay at the crossing of Chiron and Pluto leads to intense experiences in the realm of sexuality, the use of power and as well as the issues of life and death. The awareness and maturity of your personal experience of such matters determine the type of situation you are likely to encounter." Okay, I'm seeking further perspective on how my awareness and maturity of such matters as "intense experiences in the realm of sexuality, the use of power and as well as the issues of life and death" would determine the type of situation I may encounter. Would it be don't trust anyone ever? not at all sex use of power issues of life and death that sex is a taboo subject in traditional western religious environments says more about the fearfulness of traditional religious environments than it does about sex the experience is capable of evoking extremely powerful emotional states there really is a feeling of oneness and connection that melts people together for a moment there is also a purely physical lust that is primal and raw these experiences are incredible and incredibly powerful obviously one needs a compatable partner i recomend aiming high and not being afraid of rejection as suggestions to anyone looking for such a partner the use of power always comes to this; power itself eventually defeats those unfit for it. who do you become when everyone else is subservient to you? what do you pursue when you know that you can literally have whatever you desire? at what point does being the emporer become more of a burden than a priveledge? how ought the emporer act towards his subjects? what about the emporers son? if you would be king think well on how you would address a king if held power of death over you at his whim would you be a brave counselor? would you stand on your truth or on his inclination? how do you treat those who are more powerful and how do you trealt those less powerful than yourself? life and death have you ever risked your life? have you ever been in a situation where your life was in danger? have you faced danger willingly or deliberately? do you need to prove yourself? if so to whom? and how? and what of the effects of your proof on others? do you know that if you find yourself in a situation where your life or others lives are in danger that you have at least the potential to keep some semblance of composure and to think objectively? can you develop and impmement a plan in the face of danger? how afraid are you to die? not theoretical "i know im going to heaven so im not afraid of the bad guys on tv" courage but "this may cost me my life but i dont have any other choice" kind lf courage i would say its ok to not know the answers right away also it is ok to have been afraid and to have backed down because of it what it is not ok to do is accept that you are a defeated person so what now? how does one go about answering these questions? SHOULD one deliberately seek such answers? ----- ones perspective flavors the nature of any experience such questions as i have posted flavor ones perspective so in the answers to my questions you will touch upon the answer to your question
    • Should Jedi carry weapons? (Last post by Hitira38)
    • I carry a Glock G19 GEN4. Mainly for a zombie apocalypse, just encase they break out one day. But also because most situations can be diffused simply by saying "I have a gun" I also live in Texas, some towns in Texas won't let you live there unless you own a gun.

I would have chosen something like soaring dragon....sounds more intimidating...
