WHAT IS A BOKKEN?


A Bokken is a wooden Japanese sword that is used in martial arts training. Boku means wood and ken means sword, hence the name. It is usually the size and shape of a katana, but is sometimes shaped like other Japanese swords such as the wakizashi and tanto. Bokken is really the term used in the west to describe the weapon, as the word is synonymous with bokuto in Japan, which is most often used to describe it there.

WHAT IS A JO?


The wooden staff of Japan, or "Jo", is a cylindrical straight stick of unassuming character with a length ranging from about 50" to 56" and a diameter of about 1". It is used alone in kata or paired with other Jo and closely linked historically with the Japanese sword. Staffs are inconspicuous and, owing to their elegance and simplicity, are preferred by some martial artists above all other weapons.

WHAT IS A TANTO?



Tanto blade is a fixed-blade knife that originated from Japan. It is commonly single or double edged and its length usually ranges from 15 cm to 30 cm. The tanto was discovered partway through the Heian age, when it was primarily used as a weapon
