There are some really really heavy bokken floating around here. I'm waiting for Jesse to chime in since a) he is the weight lifting student I mentioned and b) has one of the aforementioned monsters.
I did somewhat mention that with the right bokken it may be but the defining difference to me is that weight training is progressive. Unless you have several monster bokken it's not the same. I'm not saying that it won't condition the body, and it surely conditions the mind doing 1,000 cuts, I'm just saying that it's not the same thing as weight training.

Maybe I should say progressive resistance training rather than weight training?
