    Not sure on that one, as my knowledge on waraji is probably as limited as yours. I thought wafu had something about tying them. Try asking one of the e-budo members living in Japan, they may know or...

    Bad idea

    No, that would be a very bad choice for iai practice. If he want's something from 888knives, then have him look at the Chen Gorin or Nami iaito. Or point him to Tozando, E-bogu, BoguBag etc.

    That's terrible, and it has no place in proper training. I feel really sad for the parents who trusted this "coach" or "sensei" with their son.

    Robert

    I got introduced to Robert Johnson by a friend in the Navy, and have loved his stuff ever since. It's funny though how a lot of his songs were later redone by CCR.
