I studied Kendo for a while years ago. Not bad, but more sport then actual combat. For some reason, anything that is used as an extension of my hand seems very comforting however. Just like at work, if needed, I'll draw my ASP before my pistol or OC spray. Always wanted to get back into kendo. Iaido is not offered around here. What style is the one that Nick Gillard incorporated into his choreographing. There was a few styles, along with his own style. But there was an Asian art. The name begun with an "S". Does anyone know?
