    Yagyu Shinkage Ryu (Naginata Yo) Bokken - Red/White Oak & Isu no Ki

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)

    Flat Spine | Flat butt | Beveled kissaki

    Red Oak, White Oak and Isu no Ki available

    This Bokken is made from a single piece of either oak (red or white) or isu no ki from the southern islands of Kyushu (Japan). Although this model is intended for practitioners of the famous school of kenjutsu "Yagyu Shinkage Ryu", it is very pleasant to handle and quite popular among aikidoka. A light curvature, a long tsuka and a weight slightly inferior to the classic bokken, these are the characteristics of this special model. Its balance is shifted towards the kissaki.
    A possible link claimed by certain historians between the founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, and the Yagyu Shinkage Ryu, popularized this model, in a research context for the practise with weapons in Aikido.

    • Choice of wood species: red oak, white oak, Isu no Ki
    • Available finish: Urethane varnish or camellia oil polish.
    • Manufacturing workshop: Horinouchi for red and white oak, Aramaki for Isu no ki.

    Non varnished - Oil polish option (+ 600 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 Yagyu Shinkage Ryu :

    The school of Kenjutsu "Yagyu Shinkage" was founded by Yagyu Muneyoshi Sekihusaï and his son Yagyu Munenori at the end of the 16th century and is the result of knowledge of the clan Yagyu, as well as the "Shinkage Ryu" of Kamiizumi from which Muneyoshi received the teachings after having lost a duel against him. Promptly adopted by the shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa, the school "Yagyu Shinkage" became and still is in our days one of the most famous and popular school of Kenjutsu in Japan. The term "Yagyu Ryu" refers to the many styles created by various members of the Yagyu family, having a common origin. Not to be mistaken for the "Yagyu Shingan Ryu", tough linked historically to the Yagyu family  yet, very different from the school of "Yagyu Shinkage" or "Yagyu Ryu", which is also remarkably different as indicated by the specifications of the much lighter bokken used. The school is currently run by Yagyu Toshinobu, 22nd soke. Certain historians claim, (without going into further details) that the founder of Aikido Morihei Ueshiba had trained or at least carefully observed the Yagyu Shinkage Ryu.
