These Child white oak bokken are shorter than standard length bokken, perfect for kids wanting to train in Japanese styles like Kenjitsu, Aikido, Ju Jitsu and Ninjutsu. They are perfect for partner work, drills and forms. These Child White Oak Bokken are lighter and shorter so much more manageable for kids than the standard size bokken. It means they can get involved with training rather than their shoulders giving up after 10 seconds and having to admit defeat and take a rest.
Made from white oak, they are super durable and can be used for light sparring. However, wood is a natural product and it is not indestructible so be careful and take it easy. Then this Bokken will last you a lifetime. With the Child White Oak Bokken you also get a Tsuba which helps protect the hands and fingers. Not all styles use them, like Aikido, but they are good for protecting the Child's Hands when training.
The Child white oak bokken comes in 33 inches or 84 cm, which is shorter than the standard bokken length as full length bokken can to too unwieldy or heavy for kids If you purchase one of our plastic saya they are great for practicing drawing sword work too, although the saya are designed for standard length bokken so it won't fit perfectly. Good solid, reliable piece of kit and it won’t let you down.
“The perfect option for kids wanting to learn Aikido and Ninjutsu. Normal Bokken can be too heavy for them, so these work great”
