Anyone here practices Kendou?
I'd love to give it a try but I am not sure about bokken's quality, where to buy one, and I'm pretty sure there aren't any Dojo in my city. However it's pretty nice to hear stories from students.

Also, does somebody here can sit seiza without problems? I don't find it particularly hard but because I have problems with my knee and hip bones, when I try to get up, they hurt like I've been in that position all my life. Nothing that a few minutes relaxing my legs can't cure, but if I ever find myself staying like that and then needing to get up fast, I'd be already dead since my opponent could easily kill me.

Seiza is meant to hurt unless one practises it regularly, consider that Japanese people do it since they're little, that's how they get used to it.

Also, did a bit of Kendo (wish my keyboard had the 'long o' handy, can't stand the 'ou' romanisation) and didn't like it one bit. Very, very, very repetitive especially in the early stages, good exquipment is expensive, and it's probably the least useful martial art in today's world - unless you go around with a wooden sword it'll do zilch for you in the mean streets. Minus extra points if you dislike loud sounds: a kendo dojo sounds like the set of a bad period dorama.

>Seiza is meant to hurt unless one practises it regularly, consider that Japanese people do it since they're little, that's how they get used to it.

Yeah. I've been practicing regularly since a month or so, 3~5 times everyday, from 10 to 20 minutes. While I knew Seiza is meant to hurt and that japanese people do get used to it because they basically do since little, what has been bugging me is that most of the comments I read about it are about "pinches and little pain", or "my ankles and fibula hurt" rather than some pain in the knees while trying to stand up.
But now that I rethink about it it might be me thinking I'm a snowflake. It's weird because I don't have problems sitting nor enduring the time I take, but when I try to get up my knees just give up at the pain.

>Also, did a bit of Kendo (wish my keyboard had the 'long o' handy, can't stand the 'ou' romanisation) and didn't like it one bit


Yeah, I dislike it too but I was kinda lazy and ended up using baka romanji.

Crap, that is kinda disappointing. Kendō was supposed to be both a way to teach the body and mind, while meditating and becoming one with your sword and movements. If that is not what you find in the dōjō, it certainly might not be suitable for what I was looking for. I'll move my eyes to kenjutsu and aikidō, then. Though I don't like it that much.
As for the "going out with a bokken in the streets", well, I actually don't get out too often, and if you get stopped by the policeman or something you just can tell them you're going to train.

Oh, man, I really the idea of training as a swordsmanship, so guess I can manage to get a shinai and do some basics watching youtube videos, but not having a sensei nor opponents is just terrible, and from what I've seen, there's nothing that resembles what I'm looking for.
