You should seriously consider taking up some form of Aikido-related sword work. Nishio Shihan for example has deviced a number of paired ken-tai-ken (sword vs. sword) and ken-tai-jo (sword vs. staff) techniques which are excellent for practicing maai. I don't know any names of others who practice in a similar way, but there must be several others.
Alternatively you could join a kenjutsu-dojo where they do paired exercises or perhaps ask in a Kendo-dojo if you can join the kendo-kata practice.
Just a few thoughts!
