Our Jo’s is made by high quality Japanese Shirokashi where the grain is very compressed compared to other types of wood. The diameter is 1 sun (30mm), which makes Jo more durable and tougher than a thinner Jo.
This bokuto is especially made for Aikido using Japanese White Oak. Most Aikidoka prefer to use this type of bokuto.
Comparing to other regular Bokken, the tip is not as sharp as regular ones; thus practices can be done safely.
All of our Jo and Bokken are handcrafted by traditional Bokken craftsman one by one in Miyazaki, Japan.
