Um, suburi (fU) is repeated swinging of a sword at an imaginary enemy. Swords intended for suburi are usually referred to as suburito.

Now that that's out of the way, "help a lot more" at what? Personally, my only use for suburito is as a strength/endurance building tool, and it's not terribly useful for that. My lower body tires out more quickly than my upper, as the lower is doing most of the work.

I suppose shape would be important in that it affects overall weight and balance, but again, what do you want to gain from using a suburito?

2 guys from our dojo tried them suburito and they had a negative experience.they said it made them muscle more during techniques.

That is their opinion ofcourse.

Better ask your sensei, he knows whats beneficial for you.
