Jun, you left out a category:

"we don't have weapons class in our dojo"

It irritates me no end when one of my teachers says "its just like with a sword..." and we don't have the opportunity to explore Why and How, with a sword. It is hard to imagine a tactile experience one has not actually felt.I can "visualize holding the sword" but that will not help my technique one bit if my visualization is technically incorrect!
