So recently I have just started training in kenjutsu which is a umbrella term for various types of Japanese sword art revolving around the katana. So I'd like to know if anyone else is also training in this martial art? If you do what do you practice with? What do your practice your cuts on ? What kind of katana do you have? So far i have just been practicing on old jugs. Hanging on rope from my gazebo filled with water. The katana i am using is a Hanwei practical pro made for frequent drawing and cutting practice, it weighs 7 pounds which seems to be on the lighter side but it still gets heavy after 10 minutes of kata lol. On top of just really enjoying it i lightly prep, and I figure knowing how to fight with a katana would come in handy if the supply of bullets runs out in a apocalyptic situation.
