    Question What's In Your Belt?

    Do any of you practice Iai or Batto?
    What kind of weapon are you using?
    feel free to post pics.

    My iai practice is on hold with injuries and work schedule. But, when I can I train in MJER.

    Here is Sensei Carl Long, Hanshi Masayuki Shimabukuro, and myself.



    Sorry, no action shots

    Here is the practice katana i've had for about the past 7 years.
    My teacher made it for me.....it's a little heavy, but well balanced.
    the blade is 27.5 inches and the tsuka is 14. I've been meaning to cut an inch off of the tsuka because
    it is just a bit too long for my comfort.

    Ahh...anytime you talk about sharp objects I get all warm and fuzzy inside.

    For cutting I use a dynasty forge katana



    and for draw practice I use an iaito




    Love to do this stuff...

    Me doing warm ups on pool noodles with my kodachi :


    and then me trying out a freind's home made targets...they didn't cut very well but it made for a great PR shot...



    Multi dan Hapkido Guy Mark Abbott trying a cut for the first time:


    and last but not least a shameless plug for my art business...



    Thanks for the opportunity to show off....
    Regards,
    Walt

    i think when it's time to get a shinken......im going to go with a bugei model.
    i really like the look of the Dragonfly......but from the description, you need to have a masterful hand.
