Get the Aiki-Ken DVD by Saito Sensei.

Dave Lowry's Bokken by O'Hara Publications.

Contact Kingfisher Woodworks and see if they can help.

Re: research on bokken

I have decided to write about Japanese sword more widely(not just bokken - shinken also). In Estonia, it is somewhat hard to get this Aiki-Ken DVD. I have not yet started full net search - I haven't had time yet. I went to capital city Tallinn to get some books though. There is almost nothing in estonian(just 1 article) and very little in english(at least not in Estonia). I don't know - maybe I just need to know the right person. but anyway, I found one very helpful book: "The Connpisseur's book of japanese swords" by Kokan Nagayama. If you know more books of that kind, please contact me on the email adress above. It would be very helpful, if it is in the net.

Re: research on bokken

There's a book I read called "Bokken: the art of Japanese swordplay", or something, got a nice bit of history at the beginning, you might be able to get it from a library or something to save you buying it.

There's a book called "Shinkendo" by Toshishiro Obata.
