Re: bokken style

No bokken would be offensive, the different types are just favoured by certain different styles and schools, eg the yagyu bokken, the twin niten bokken. For the majority, thickness and length is a personal prefference, although the very heavy suburito bokken are mainly for improving your suburi and making sure that your technique is correct and not too strength orientated. Or so I believe.

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.
