Keep on keeping on Dango. I only wish I could handle a sword. I do fine chopping brush with a machete, and sometimes I day dream that I'm a samurai while doing it.

Ok so new question, I would like some help. What do you guys practice cuts on , dango or jägermeister, if you guys could giver some input it'd be great. Lately I practice on jugs, but I'm running out of jugs and I would like something a little hared to cut that requires more skill. That I can buy or easily make?

Haven't done this in many years but out here where I live , there are many farmers markets ..! I look for spoiled Hams and large water melons ..!

Good thing is you can still eat the melons and use the spoiled hams twice , cuts and ballistics..!

FWIW...
You should practice on traditional Tameshigiri cutting mats. However they can be a bit pricey. It's been a long while since I've purchased, and the company I did business with isn't on the net anymore?

Search Ebay, or the net for Tatame Omote cutting targets you can find some cheapies at
http://www.swordsofmight.com/tameshigiricuttingmatsandstands.aspx

When you start cutting mats I urge you to use proper technique, and posture and ensure your blade is sharp. You'll understand immediately if your off.

I am an old man. And now , it's about halving fun..! Now , I just like to play.! Once , it becomes so familiar to the point of losing passion for it , it's time to just play and have some fun with it..!

It has become a lot more fun and challenging ,
Trust me..! Eeek.!

It has become a whole lot easier to draw blood , mine perhaps..! One day , and it will come , with everyday BS's , it will lose it's luster..! That is when it becomes a formidable toy..! If ever I get that video posted , you will see just that , me having a ton of fun..!

PS: Still can't dance worth a crap...! Weeeee Haaaaa..!
