Re: bokken strike style

I was watching a demo one day sitting next to a friend who did a koryu sword style. The nice guy up on the stage was doing a fairly conventional aikiken type demo. The koryu fella looked at me and asked why it is some aikidoka tend to swing the sword like we're trying to axe murder a munchkin. Yeah, I could only laugh at the comment and nod in agreement.

The problem now is that every time I watch that style of "swinging" a bokken I flash back on that image. Can't quite "unsee" that one.
