The state of emergency has been lifted in Japan, but the international logistic hasn't improved much. Japan Post has suspended all shipments to more than 150 countries, FedEx shipments are suspended for all destinations, DHL has implemented a significant price surcharge and UPS increased prices for small packages. Long story short: most orders are shipped and delivered normally, but not everywhere and oversized packages are complicated to handle. Please refer to the table below to see if your order can ship and with which carrier/shipping method.

Despite those limitations, and thanks to our unparalleled logistic, we are maintaining a high turnover with dozens of orders shipped everyday. Our entire team is focused on logistic issues and customer support, entirely committed to deliver as many customers as possible with the most afforable shipping solution. We can assure you that the very large majority of shipped orders are delivered without any trouble and we would like to express our gratitude for your support in this difficult time.

  • Free shipping options can still be selected at checkout, however, if described as "SUSPENDED", your order will be prepared and packed, then put on hold until shipments reopen (probably July at the earliest) without further notice.
  • Emergency surcharges are additional fees that we may request for oversized packages after your order has been placed (no charge without your consent). We will not charge the emergency surcharge for orders above 30,000 YEN containing several weapons.
  • Orders put on hold as a result of your choice of a suspended shipping method as defined in the table below will be subject to a 2,000 YEN cancellation fee, should you want to cancel the order later on. (Except for custom made orders that are non cancellable, whatever the reason)
  • If your country is not on the list, please contact us prior to placing your order! Failure to do so might result in your order put on hold without further notice.

Tonfa & Nunchaku

Average rating: 4.9/5 - 10 customer reviews

Our Selection of Wooden Tonfa & Nunchaku

The wooden weapons proposed by Seido are manufactured by one of the last 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 Aramaki 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. 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.
