Re: help on drawing and sheath the sword

"i basically do aikido but would like to learn the basic of swordsmanship like propero drawing and sheathing of the sword back to scabbard as well as some cutting and basic kenjutsu techniques"

No offence but you cannot learn proper anything without a teacher... espcially basics... and most especially sword.

The basics are the most important part of your training... Anything you get from a video or a book is but a general idea of how things are done, without a teacher to show you the intricacies then when you finally do find a teacher a good portion of your training will be trying to overcome the bad habits that you taught yourself.
