I am very interested in learning Saotome Sensei's aiki-ken and aiki-jo, specially the two-sword forms.

Do you think his instructional videos are a good start for learning this?

Also, where can I obtain a short bokken? I know I could always modify a regular-sized bokken, but that seems like a waste. And does the tip of the short bokken need to be of the "pointy" kind, or does the blunt tip (like in the bu-jin and Iwama-style bokkens) work?

Any suggestions are apreciated.
