Tonfa & Nunchaku

Average rating: 4.8/5 - 4 customer reviews

Our Selection of Wooden Tonfa & Nunchaku

The wooden weapons proposed by Seido are manufactured by one of the last four traditional workshops in the south of Japan, in the region of Miyakonojo (Kyushu) (learn more about the workshops on our Artisans Presentation Page).
Our Nunchaku & Tonfa are all produced by the Horinouchi workshop, which has the most extensive catalog for those weapons.

Nunchaku are mainly used in Okinawan Kobudo and Karate. It is believed to have its origins in a farmer tool used to thresh rice or soybeans.
Our models are perfectly suited for any type of Japanese Budo practice. Please note that our Nunchaku are Japanese Nunchaku and therefore do not feature ball-bearing connections. They are made to be used in the context of Budo practice and will not withstand high speed artistic Nunchaku practice.

The Tonfa is also a Japanese weapon mainly used in Okinawan Kobudo and Karate, and as the Nunchaku, it developed from a farmer tool, a millstone handle. As the Tonfa length must be adapted to the forearm length, all models are made to order and offered in 4 different lengths. Tonfa are mostly used in pairs, however, we do sell them by unit so that you can replace a single damaged piece.

Please note that due to PayPal's regulations, PayPal payment is deactivated at checkout when a Nunchaku or a Tonfa is in your cart. Hence, you will not be able to pay with your PayPal account for those items. Furthermore, possession of Nunchaku and/or Tonfa is illegal in some countries, except for use in professional martial art schools. Please make sure importation is authorized before placing your order.
