Re: Bokken etiquette

So to get the ball rolling: where I train there is some variation but most hand it back blade outside, tip angled away from nage.
We tend not to start or end class with weapons, so bowing it in and out is by each student (not lined up) raising horizontally to near eye level and doing a very shallow bow to shomen.
We tend to keep weapons to our left when lined up during practice.
