light sabers and martale arts

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.
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 ...

Well Keith Renshi is my Master as such but not here..and I am confused..all the time lol.
Totally agree with Keith Renshi and Master Jester. All I would add is, Please try to find a club that has traditional ethics and etiquette.
Yours in the spirit of Budo
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...
Thank you for your kind and respectful words.
You have my full respect as a Master and Martial Artist.
I look forward to talking with you again soon .
