While I do not have a technical response, I have more of a simplified one. Much like Musashi, Soke seems to perfer not to have a preferance. I have trained with both straight, curved, long, and short bokken. And rarley with the same one twice in a row. Safety issues aside, any good stout bokken that you can get your hands on is a good start. While I hate to admit it, I do have a afavorite though. I bought a ninjato boken from the buki company, and I love it. Great stuff on thier site!

....OH!! and dont forget your taijutsu! [/quote]

Believe me, I learned that lesson the first time I used a bo, I never realized that I had the taijutsu of a mentally challenged yeti!
Thanks for your help

Good day,
Just a quick/hard question from a beginner. I have been training for about 3 years. I have a vested interest in bo, and have been recently thinking about where the techniques come from. My thought process lead me to understand that most likely they came from fighting with a katana wielding opponent. Thus, I am attempting to work more katana in my solo training. It has been just my luck, that not much katana work has found its way into my more 'formal' training. I was wondering if anyone could relate some good katana kata, such as the 8 main cuts, (what are they?) Thanks for your time
(I hope that this is not too out of context with this thread)
