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.
