This bokken is aimed for people who practice AIKIDO.

It has an average weight, is solid, very resistant to shocks against a bokken or a jo.

In general, white oak is a little bit heavier (30 - 40g) than red oak. However, according to a study performed by the Association for the defence of Japanese wood, density is approximately the same.

These bokken are made from Japanese oak from Kyushu (the southern part of Japan ) by NIDOME Bokuto Craft Company at Miyakonojo, in Kyushu. This company represented more than 80% of the bokken manufacturing market in Japan. Miyakonojo keeps the traditional way of manufacturing, such as  drying the wood naturally in order not to destroy the fibers of oak; therefore our bokken are solid and robust and can be used for a long time. NIDOME Company uses the wood taken from 70 years old trees.
