I received a black belt in Iaido (Japanese sword) yesterday. <img alt="cool.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif"><br><br>
After a warm up/review/evaluation we had the official test. 5 new black belts were awards along with several other promotions. I'll post a picture when I get it.

Neat! I've Soooo wanted to do that... eventually, I will. I've got about 30 swords. Several "real" and mostly "decorative". Used to make for a cool display in my office. A bit freaky for interviewees though <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

TriBob, what an accomplishment! What other martial arts do you do? If I remember correctly, Karate, Aikido? Do you do Kendo? Please post some photos - I do recall seeing you in a Hakama. You looked great.

Yes, it is a katana.<br><br>
My main art is Japanese Kenpo. A striking style like karate on the outside at least. I am also training in Aikijujutsu. I have also trained in Aikido, Tae Kwon Do and Hapkido. Sensei wants us to do Kendo too. We might start a Kendo class soon.
