Re: O Sensei bokken

It's a striking weapon, not "an approximation of a shinken," and it is also not a short staff or club. Can you clarify what the bokken is in Saito Sensei's Aikiken system?
My personal view is that both jo and bokken are tools for the study and development of power and its application. Aikiken and Aikijo are not self contained kenjitsu and jojitsu system.
