Bokken Exercises

Hey all,

I've looked through the weapons section to see if there are any bokken exercises that one can do in their own time. I didn't find much.

I was recommended to do 1000+ sword cuts each side and gradually increase the number of cuts as i felt the need to. I was just wondering what other things can I do with the bokken? Shomen cuts, Yokomen cuts, Tsuki, Swallow cuts? And could you give me the reasoning behind such methods, eg you do this motion because it develops this etc.

Any exercises relating to the bokken would be helpful.

Cheers.
