but your on your own on this one. this is one area i have NOOOO knowledge in what so ever.. I would love to be trained in sword, but other than just some traditional sliceing and how to hold one is about it..I stick more to Cane, Sai and chucks and the other instructor is basicly and bow man. IF you have any training video's let me know and we might do some trading.
The only sword style I've been exposed to was Iaido, and I found it excruciatingly boring. I wouldn't mind learning a more active sword style, but it's not a priority for me.
On the other hand I've been studying Pekiti Tirsia Kali for over three years. The focus is knife and short sword or machete, It's a very active style. Almost all drills are contact drills, and we spar in every session. It took me a long time to get the hang of the footwork and the art in general, as it's very different from the empty hand stuff I have done, but it's finally starting to grow on me.
Check out Shin Ken Do. I want to study it meself
