Re: bokken strike style

Well, I'll point out that even some iai and certainly some kendo folk are often rather surprised to find out how swords cut for real... The iai folk I know tend to adjust pretty quickly to actually cutting targets, but one kendo fella I know had a devil of a time getting away from that snapping "cut" of his. He tended to launch targets across my yard, much to the blade's disappointment... So to speak...
