Which do you like better?
I like both but I think to honour my teacher who is Korean I should pick Yedo. Thanks for the advice.
(my earlier deleted post) ... it is not about us ... it is about what YOU like
to honour your teacher ... if you are a student and your teacher should recommending something to you or you can ask your teacher whats best for you.
I love 6" to 4' short staff which similiar to broom, stick, chair, pen etc anything is similiar to short staff in a reach to defend myself ... my sensei really does not want me to do short staff but recommending me to use 6' long staff ... I have to respect him and still able to do short staff in my own time similiar to long staff.
while you asking us ... explain why you ask the questions ...
for example (let's just say) : I am whooping every student in my class in kata, sparring and weapon as well ... my sensei won't speak to me ... is that bad ?
Not sure what a yedo is so please enlighten me. Personally I have no preferences when it comes to kobudo. Since I've trained in kenjutsu then I suppose I'd say the shinken.
Yedo (Korean sword)
Thanks Sneaker. In that case either one is fine. The principle of the cutting will be the same no matter the weapon.
Gotta love google
Great post I'd like it but don't know how in TapaTalk
Even as a one handed sword the principle of the cut remains the same. You wouldn't hack at someone with either sword. Very interesting though, how closely the weapons resemble each other considering the rather violent history between Korea and Japan.
I do not use TapaTalk and agreed "don't know how" ... I just use K.I.S.S. browser
I agree Void_Karateka
Being Korean and Japanese I used to joke I had an inner civil war in my soul. Been to both South Korean and Japan, and it makes me SMH when I see folks still carrying that old grudge.
