High Quality Aikido Equipment directly from Japan
【Golden Week 2015】 Due to the Golden Week period (large consecutive Holiday), all our workshop will close on April 29th, then from May 1st to 7th. Order containing off stock or made to order products placed between April 15th and May 15th might suffer a delay of 10 to 15 days. SeidoShop will close as on calendar, on April 29th, and from may 2nd to 6th. As usual, our team is taking work home and will continue to answers emails as soon as possible.
The wooden weapons proposed by Seido are manufactured by one of the last four traditionnal workshop in the south of Japan, in the region of Miyakonojo (Kyushu), Horinouchi, Nidome, Matsuzaki and Aramaki. Seido is the only company in the world (including Japan) working with these 4 workshops simultaneously. Our weapons are selected according to the specialties of each workshop, the time of manufacture as well as the pricing. If you have got a preference for a particular workshop, please contact us for quotation.
In this section, we will present a series of bokken, jo, and tanto sets, as well as a complete bokken, jo and tanto set. Just like for our individual weapons, these sets are available in different woods such as red and white oak, isu no ki, sunuke, etc. You can refer to the page "How to choose your Bokken/Wood" to help you make your choice. Please note that all models are not available in all wood types. Please refer to the detailed information on each product page.
All bokken can be engraved directly in our facilities within a few days.
Finally, most of our weapons can be ordered either painted (urethane) or unvarnished. Unvarnished weapons require more maintenance but their touch is without comparison. Unvarnished weapons are significantly more expensive because of the more extensive polishing and because these are oiled by our team with camellia oil.
