Re: Bokken etiquette

Yes as sensei tells you!

Seen a number of ways to pass the bokken, place it on the ground, hold the handle so the blade it vertical and facing you, handle up (like for jodo), even throw it ( OK not as a standard method ) . The way we do it is present the handle to uke with the tip of the blade facing behind you and the back of the blade against your right bicep, so as they take the bokken the blade is facing away from you and wouldn't cut you if it were a sword.
