High Quality Aikido & Kobudo Equipment directly from Japan
The wooden weapons proposed by Seido are manufactured by one of the last four traditional workshop in the south of Japan, in the region of Miyakonojo (Kyushu), Horinouchi, Nidome, Matsuzaki and Aramaki (learn more about the workshops on our artisans presentation page). 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. 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.
