  • Kendo Partner Needed (For those located in Detroit area)

    I found an ad on craiglist of someone looking for a training partner in the Detroit area:

    http://detroit.craigslist.org/mcb/cas/5471530168.html

    "Looking for someone well versed in the art of sword play, specially kendo. I've got a bokken as well as a spare. This could be totally platonic but if an appropriate arrangement is made...I wouldn't be opposed. I'm neither submissive or versatile. Those inquiring should include a pic in first response as well as a contact number. Put your city in the subject line. "

    For anyone interested please feel free to contact this person . I actually don't see a lot of posts about Kendo in craiglist ... but this one certainly was an eye catcher !

    That's got to be one of the weirdest posts I've come across in a while. If you'll notice, the ad doesn't say anything about training, just that you should be well versed in sword play to be their 'partner'. It also could be platonic. Makes me wonder just what sort of "sword play" they're looking for!

      It's quite clear from the ad itself what sort of swordplay is requested. Labelled "m2m".

          Ah, here I thought it was a honest request for a training partner. Though I kind of felt there was other alternative intentions behind it >.>. Though yes I did notice it was in the m2m section but still... I thought it might be a partial honest request for a training partner .

                art of sword play?
                Submissive or versatile?
                Picture?

                Those are all red flags.

                  That is actually a great idea but I took too long to read up your reply I do hope he found someone to train Kendo with
