What I'm trying to say is, will my hatred for the Jo go away after enough practice, or will it always be there?


Eventually, you'll love the jo.

We hate the things we don't understand. Practice the 20 suburi at home (or your dojo's equivalent - if you don't know them you can find them on this site). It just takes practice.


If one makes a distinction between the dojo and the battlefield, or being in your bedroom or in public, then when the time comes there will be no opportunity to make amends. (Hagakure)
