    MT has just been invaded by Michigan! %-}

    I am a casual martial artist with interests in some of the historical aspects and traditions. I've briefly trained in Tae Kwon Do, and currently am looking to begin some study of the sword arts. Swords have always fascinated me and now I finally want to start some beginner Japanese sword art work. Any suggestions are welcome, and thanks in advance!

    What can we say, Michigan can't be beat in the fall.

    The colors, the colors

    There is a school in Ann Arbor that does iado and I think kendo. Is your mind set on japanese? You might want to look into doing kali, escrima or arnis. They use knife and sword.

    Perhaps you could look into Haidong Gumdo Sword, the way of the Samarang. It's a Korean Art usually taught at Taekwondo schools.123
