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 ...

    • Momento Mori (Last post by Rosalyn J)
    • Honestly, I am afraid of death. I like to think that I am not, but I am still young enough to view myself with a hint of invincibility, but still old enough to know that it is just a hint. I've written about it here as a starting point, as an indication that I am starting to consider it as an eventuality for me. But when it does occupy my thoughts, I often feel a sense of grief that I have wasted my time, or regrets that I have not gone further and done more. Even so, this doesn't really change my behavior in the long run. Case and point is that I have stopped writing the book I committed to. I don't know.

    • Quote: Alexandre, your posts are like rare gems, and are always incredibly thoughtful, respectful, and carry a hefty amount of wisdom. I always look forward to reading your thoughts, and your presence is an incredibly calming and inspirational one here on our humble message boards. I aspire to be someone as well studied, and gifted with the written (and spoken) word as yourself! We missed Cayce!! Cayce, we haven't talked much but I really appreciate your offer of artwork services. Your work is professional and your attention to detail is on point! ----- Ok! skip me, continue with Ros :D

    • I Am (Last post by SecondVariation)
    • I am a(n): 1. Engineer 2. Graduate student 3. Piano teacher 4. Gamer 5. Canadian Part 2. 1. I am an engineer, but I don't know how to fix cars. (for people who may argue that this isn't a stereotype of engineers, if you ask the average grade 5 student what an engineer does, the answer is almost always "he fixes cars".) 2. I am a graduate student, but I don't eat instant ramen every day. 3. I am a piano teacher, but I am terrible at remembering music history. Styles of composers, fine, but who composed that particular piece? That's what the internet is for! 4. I am a gamer, but I've never played Catan (I know...) 5. I am Canadian, but I only watch hockey during the olympics or the IIHF World Junior Championships. Thanks Kit, this is fun!
    • IP discussion area (Last post by Jestor)
    • Quote: Does a person really need to be a knight to "give back" or serve the Temple? No, of course not,lol... Merely trying to answer this: Quote: So if I complete the IP(half way through it now) and wanted to do an apprenticeship for the sake of doing an apprenticeship and growing as an individual, but not proceed to a knight rank as I do not have the time to commit to the tasks required of a knight, is that a thing? Can it be a thing? and we kinda went off on a tangent a bit, :)

    • Purpose of joining the Clergy (Last post by carlos.martinez3)
    • Manu, my man! Great question. In this Temple, I would hope the longer you stay the more your gonna wanna know. I can only speak for my self and I am only speaking to you, it is up to the individual, u, how far how long and how much you a re willing to do. I have not regretted any choice to involve my self in this place. None. Difficulty and perfection is never demanded nor expected here. Don't try lolj/k. Here the clergy is very different. You can " collar up " , robe out or even pick tour own identification to mesh with or stand out..its all on you. LITERALLY. Where you take it is up to you. Seminary can be classes and reports or, searching and finding and defining and recreation. For me my purpose was evident. BUILD. Its different for every one. Seek and you will find. The fact that it's a spark says a lot friend. Looking forward to seeing where this goes.... with you Manu! I have an open door policy if u ever need. We are never alone in this place!

    • I have a very good question! (Last post by Rickie)
    • Quote: Has anyone of the Temple of the Jedi Order - Specifically a Jedi turned to the Darkside? You could try to discuss this here It's a little rough and tumbled but I believe they have some there that were once (and some still are) here. It's an interesting and thought provoking place.
    • Is the world getting worse than ever? (Last post by Khaos)
    • I do think that, while the world is not worse than ever, people are more pessimistic than ever. Usually due to there information diet. Not to say one should remain ignorant of bad things that go on, but at the same time, I think people give it more exposure than anything positive that may be out there. Lets be honest, how many " Are you sensing something bad/disturbance in the Force" or something of the like will you find in this one web forum were you so inclined? Which, predicting something vague, either bad or good, will usually be validated in some way, if one is willing to look. Still, people are looking for the next Alderaan, or more realistically, 9/11, over anything even remotely positive.
    • Reminder: TOTJO is global, not just American (Last post by Senan)
    • Basing one's opinion of anything on broad generalizations is convenient and easy, but it also displays a lack of effort, a lack of knowledge and a clear misunderstanding of how stereotypes are perpetuated. As a citizen of the U.S., am I to assume that all Australians are like "Crocodile Dundee"? Do all Japanese love Hello Kitty? Are Russians all alcoholics? Are all Polish people stupid? If it helps to illustrate my point, I am a citizen of the U.S.A born and raised in Southern California. If you understand the history and geography of this area, you would know that it is incorrect to stereotype me as a "Yank". It is actually an offensive term to many here on the West Coast or in the Southern U.S. California is not Alaska, nor is it Alabama or New York, just as Japan is not Korea, nor is it China or Vietnam. English are not Irish are not Welsh are not Scottish, and none of the individuals identifying as any of those should be lumped in with every other who identifies that way. If you wish to generalize about all "Americans", understand that you are welcoming others to generalize about you as well. As a Southern California native, I much more closely identify with Hispanic culture. I am not in the military and I do not "hate Texas". I did not vote for George W. Bush, but that shouldn't matter anyway. Get to know me, and then you may judge me however you wish. I will make an effort to do the same for anyone else, but it isn't made easy when I am summarily judged based on a map rather than who I am.
