Doing basic suburi is one of the most useful training exercises for internal strength as it covers the basic open/closing of the body, bringing ground strength up, gravity strength down, dantian controlling the jin through the connected frame IF you understand the root components well enough to train them individually and together in the context of the shape - but the weight and length of the sword/bokuto are excellent training tools to provide an appropriate amount of resistance for training purposes while also providing the physical context to practice sending the ki/qi out through something you're attached to.
I'm not sure. A lot of people do suburi, but they dont have internal strenght. Is there something like six directions, silk reeling in suburi?
