Putting the pointy end into the other man

I just emailed the local kendo dojo about checking out a class and possibly attending.

I've swung around a bokken a bit in Aikido, but we don't practice with it that often and I'm not what you would call skilled at it. There are sword techniques on the sandan exam, but I don't have to worry about that for a while. More importantly, I think it would help my form overall (since many of the motions in Aikido are derived from sword work), and participating in matches could help me get more comfortable with getting in the ring and going one-on-one, which I currently suck at. And besides supplementing my Aikido, it looks like a lot of fun! Still, I'm pretty nervous.
