A bokken (boku: wood / ken: sword) is a wooden sword (called BOKUTO in Japan) used for AIKIDO, KENDO and KENJUTSU training. In general, its shape and size are similar to those of a katana but there are also models similar in shape to other types of swords. Originally, bokken were designed for samurai of feudal Japan to reduce the risk of injury during training.
Our bokken are made in KYUSHU (south of Japan) at NIDOME in a traditional way and are of irreproachable quality. Our assortment includes a wide range of different models in terms of size, weight, shape, wood used, etc., at unbeatable prices, from very cheap prices for oak bokken to higher prices for ebony bokken.
Two categories of Bokken are available: Standard Bokken for Aikido, Kendo or Iaido practice, and Bokken Koryu to practice the former Kenjutsu (Koryu) schools.
The Bokken of Nidome are very popular among Aikikai masters and many of them use them during their seminars and training.
We also offer the possibility to engrave your name, the one of your dojo, your master, etc. on your bokken. Our laser engraving service is fast and cheap.

Koryu Bokken are intended for the practice of ancient Kenjutsu schools. We offer a wide range of Japanese bokken in terms of weights, dimensions etc.. These bokken were used during the training of kata against various weapons (bokken, kusarigama, naginata, ...) and had the advantage of not causing injuries.
