What is your location Van? I might (no promises) be able to find something in your area in regards to Japanese sword art training.
There's nothing quite like learning Japanese swordsmanship under a legitimate teacher.
And sharp blades are dangerous. Without the guidance, you have a high chance of hurting or killing yourself.
Scroll down to the posts by Donald Rice. This gentleman once tried to teach himself Japanese sword art by looking at pics and videos. He's lucky to be alive and have body parts still attached. He has yet to regain normal use of his left hand still from his accident of self teaching but he's working on it.
