Ai symbol Re: How many practice weapons do you have?

One Jo, one Bokken and One Tanto- sounds like a blues song. They're approx. 5 yrs. old, they were made by Bob's Bokken's (Phoenix, AZ) and are made of White Ash Hickory which has proven very sturdy. Not sure if he's still making them, but mine are good and have taken some banging up. Good care with linseed oil and an occcasional sanding will do the trick- although some olive oil will help too, just save some while you cook. You may want to get an extra Jo later to practice with a partner. And leave enough hints around the house indicating you'd want a nice Bokken for birthday, Christmas, Hannukah or whatever occasion.

None.

Between Emily and I, however, we have several bokuto (incl. moku-shoto and moku-tanto), jo, bo, moku-naginata, iaito and a few shinken; as well as a few misc. small arms (tessen, etc).

No practice weapons. All definitely capable of doing damage ... Emily used to use one red-oak bokuto to kill (several) opossum on a ranch in central Texas. She saved the machete for snakes.

Kind of a back-water...not too many things to enjoy way out here. That said, I have to admit that I train as much as I do as a result of that. Good thing, that we hava a great Sensei who happened to live right here.

I travelled for a while up to Lubbock to train with the Texas Tech fencing club. (2 hour drive, each way), so I would still train in aikido
even if I had to travel to do it.
So in a nutshell, to answer your question....training, and travel to train.
sigh ..... you do what you can.
