You have played Kendo? Wow O.O thats so cool. Man I wish I could get a chance to do some Kendo. Isn't it a sport in Japanese schools? Like instead of Physical Ed they take Kendo?

I love anything having to do with swords! (well...almost anything) No idea why but swords are great! The best wepons are swords, staffs, and daggers(but i think swords ar much better than daggers). I think it'd be great to control fire. ^^

Swords? Sure they have their place, but I'd much rather shoot someone with a bow. All that work with a sword, and they might bleed on you after the fact! Far too messy. :)

Maybe^^ but I also like the spirit surounding the Kenjutsu...
I’m doing archery as well, I’ve shot with a german long-bow and a kyudo-bow.

I'm not a fan of longsword training. I do like the short sword of the various Ninja arts.

My preferred art of choice has to be Aikido. Its very suited for smaller, less powerful types of peoples, so it suits me perfectly. Plus, aside from the busywork that my various teachers have made me do, its a pretty relaxing art form in many ways.

Whoa, I just got dizzy for a bit. I blame JREF....heh....To buy a katana and have it laying around. Well if someone breaks into your house, you will be using that thing. Cuz I know for sure I will if I bought myself one.

i would also recommend kempo. i took it for 4 yrs, alongside aikido, and both are very good practices, but ninjutsu is my fav, planning a trip to the iga-ueno bujinkan next summer!

My sparring partner always recommends Kempo, as well. I think I'll look into it.

I always enjoyed being one of the few (if not the only one) working with my Escrima sticks when other student in my dojo worked with a staff, etc.
