Re: Finding KENBU & ultra-light kenbu swords
My husband studies both iaido & kenbu. As far as the iaito used for kenbu, they use the same type of iatio for both practices. They don't use a lighter version for either practice. It might be a different situation depending upon the particular style of iaido & kenbu you practice. These days it seems hard to find a place that teaches people kenbu forms. I'm not familiar with any places in the U.K. that teach kenbu. The only schools I know of are in Phoenix, Az (United States) and Las Vegas, NV (United States). Don't know if that helps any, but I wish you luck with your search.
