    Iwama Ryu Bokken, Jo & Tanto Set - Classic Woods

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)

    Available in red oak, white oak and Isu no Ki.

    This set includes an Iwama Ryu Bokken (red oak, white oak, or isu no ki), a classic jo (3 diameters to choose from), and a classic tanto. Each weapon is manufactured from a single piece of wood from the southern islands Kyushu (Japan). Ideal for the beginner as well as advanced practitioners, this set is a classic of our catalog.

    The red oak model is made of high quality "Hon Akagashi". White oak such as Isu no Ki are also more thoroughly selected, notably more dense (and dark) on the standard model.

    With its straight cut (blunt) Kissaki (tip), tsuka (handle), and special thickness for the work of "Tenouchi" (hold), the Iwama Ryu 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.

    The standard thickness of a Jo is 24 mm (8 bu) and the 27, and 30 mm models are designed to work tanren (reinforcement), which is very important in some Aikido schools. The 27 mm model is very strong, which also makes it a great Jo practice with very violent contacts.

    • Choice of wood species: red oak, white oak, Isu no ki.
    • Contains: Deluxe Bokken, Classic Jo and Deluxe Tanto.
    • Jo Diameter: 24 mm (8bu), 27 mm (9bu) or 30 mm (1 sun).
      > Please note: 27 and 30 mm models are not available in Isu No Ki and that Isu no Ki Jo (only Jo) are always varnished to avoid bending risks.
    • Available finish: Urethane varnish or camellia oil polish.
    • Manufacturing workshop: Horinouchi for varnished weapons and Nidome for oil polished models.

    Non varnished - Oil polish option (+ 1,500 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.

    Need a bag to carry for your weapons?

    Our team recommends either one of these two high quality covers that may fit a bokken, a jo and a tanto (tanto pocket on the inside of the bag).

    • Type A Carry Bag consists of a nylon shoulder strap and of a synthetic leather reinforcement on the bottom for perfect protection and long-lasting weapons. It also comprises two clamping straps to prevent weapons from colliding, one pocket on the upper tsuba (exterior), and a discrete tanto pocket for on the inside. An external pocket is also designed to fit a name label.
    • Type B Carry Bag is made of imitation leather, which also features a thick leather reinforcement on the bottom, a large pocket for accessories or Tsuba, a shoulder strap, and a pocket for Tanto inside. This model is proposed with embroidery "Aikido" based on a calligraphy of the founder.

    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.
