Re: splinters and dents in bokken

Hey Colleen,

I just noticed you train at the Toyoda Center, is this the Toyoda Center in Grand Rapids MI? From what I've seen of their weapons work you may want to forego the red oak weapons and get at least a japanese white oak one.

The same place has one for $16.00 a little further down the page. It's not the best but it's enough to start and you can get a nicer one later.

p.s. If you're ever down in Kalamazoo or Battle Creek stop in and train...assuming you're in Michigan

"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
