    Iwama Ryu Bokken- Sunuke or Camellia

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)

    Flat Spine | Flat butt | Squared kissaki

    Sunuke or Tsubaki (camellia) available

    This Classic Iwama Ryu Aikido model is manufactured from a single piece of either Sunuke or Tsubaki (Camellia japonica) from the southern islands of Kyushu (Japan). Cut right at the Kissaki (tip) and with a thick tsuka (handle) made for the work of "Tenouchi" (hold), this model is intended for practitioners of aikido and more particularly to practitioners of the Iwama Ryu style. Slightly curved, slightly longer than a conventional model, it is particularly strong.

    The Sukuke model is heavy and should work perfectly for tanren. The sunuke model weighs 200 g more than the model in red oak (850 g).

    The Tsubaki (camellia) model is it a bit lighter than the models in red or white oak. It sustain shocks relatively well and Iwama Ryu practitioners should find there a bokken of reasonable weight but that meets the specifications of their school.

    • Choice of wood species: Sunuke (heavy wood) or Tsubaki (light wood)
    • Available finish: unvarnished (camellia oil polish).
    • Manufacturing workshop: Nidome for all models

    All our high-end are offered unvarnished (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.

    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.
