    Iwama Ryu Bokken- Red/White Oak or Isu no Ki

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)

    Flat Spine | Flat butt | Squared kissaki

    Red Oak, White Oak or Isu no Ki available

    The Classic Iwama Ryu Bokken is manufactured from a single piece of oak (red or white) or Isu no ki from the southern islands of Kyushu (Japan). With its straight cut (blunt) Kissaki (tip), tsuka (handle), and special thickness for the work of "Tenouchi" (hold), this model is intended for practitioners of aikido, and more particularly for practitioners from the Iwama Ryu style. Only slightly curved, slightly longer than a conventional model, it is very solid and heavy and can do wonders for suburi.

    • Choice of wood species: red oak, white oak, Isu no ki.
    • Available finish: Urethane varnish or camellia oil polish.
    • Manufacturing workshop: Horinouchi for varnished bokken and Nidome for oil polished models.

    Difference with the Traditional Iwama Ryu model (Takemusu Aïki):

    This model is also available as "Takemusu Aiki - Tradition", which consists in 4 main features.

    - Length of 103 cm (instead of 101.5 cm for the tradition model)
    - Thinner (2 mm thinner than the tradition model).
    - Slightly lighter.
    - Hiramine (flat line) - the tradition model is slightly rounded.

    Non varnished - Oil polish option (+ 800 JPY):

    All our high-end are available either varnished with urethane or polished with camellia oil although they are much more pleasant to the touch as well as use with the latter.
    Unvarnished weapons are more ecologically-friendly, but they requires regular (monthly) maintenance with oil (camellia or wood maintenance oil) and they can only be made from the finest woods of Japanese quality. Given the need for maintenance of these weapons, our stocks are limited. Also, since the craftsmen must select the best wood possible to manufacture these weapons, the processing time is longer than for varnished weapons. If out of stock or made to order, the shipping time can take up to 6 weeks in case of shortage. Please note that the oil finish process can darken the wood significantly.

    About the Iwama Ryu style:

    "Iwama Ryu", sometimes also called "Takemusu Aiki", is a current of Aikido initiated by Morihiro Saito Sensei, a close disciple of the founder of Aikido reputed to have codified accurately and efficiently the practice aikido weapons: Aikiken and Aikijo. This style is represented in France by Daniel Toutain, Patricia Guerri and Philippe Voarino and it focuses on the practice of weapons, giving them equal importance with the bare hands practice. In fact, the practice with a bokken that matches the standards of the school is particularly important. The practice of Aikiken Iwama Ryu, besides its extreme precision, develops power input (tenouchi), due to the relative thickness of the bokken and striking power.
