Weight : approx. 700g

Length : approx. 128cm

Diameter : 24mm

Jo literally means "stick" and 8Bu corresponds to 24mm in an old Japanese unit.

Suitable for aikido practice.

This JO is highly water resistant and durable.
It changes to a beautiful dark color over time.
It has almost no bending or expansion and contraction, and has excellent water resistance and durability.

These jo are made  in Kyushu (the southern part of Japan ) by NIIDOME Bokuto Seisakujo at Miyakonojo. This company keeps the traditional way of manufacture, such as  drying the materials (wood) naturally not to destroy the fibers; therefore our Jo are solid and robust and can be used for a long time.
