So could you please explein, what does your list want to say?
And: Why is it relevant ot think about this?
We were asked a list of kata where only one end of the jo was used. I produced such a list. That's what my (incomplete) list wants to say. And: that's why it's relevant. Period.

About traditional dojo:
You seem to be used to coloured weapons? Ok then, so be it.
Not specially. But I was refering to your black & white view, while the traditional dojo is full of coloured hakamas, decorated obis and the like. Of course coloured weapons is not a no-no.

I just visited a dojo, which claims to be traditional and they did some things which seemed strange to me.
Most probably they will think what you do is strange too. And most probably they'll be righter.

Oh, sorry, I used my antagonistic tone again. Will commit e-seppuku immediately.
