What is bokken suburi?
I'm new to Aikido and I've seen the word suburi. Given that I have yet to start weapons training, I was wondering what suburi is.

Basic movements practiced solo.

Suburi is a term that means "practice swing" essentially. More specifically, swinging practice you do on your own. It is often used in refernce to someone practicing their golf swing or batting swing. Of course in aikido we hear that word paired with bokken as in bokken suburi so that usually ends up meaning practicing bokken movements and katas on your own.
