These Black Oak Bokken because they are black coloured are mainly used by Ninjutsu practitioners but are perfectly suited for many Japanese Martial Arts styles. People love them for the colour they are just as tough and durable as the red and white oak varieties. Great for solo practice drills as well as partner work and sparring practice. They also are perfect for practicing defences against attacks with a bokken in styles such as Ju Jitsu, Ninjitsu and Aikido.
They are the standard katana length of 42 inches, so when you are ready you have the experience of training with that length before you move onto a real katana. Each individual wooden bokken has it own feel. In an ideal world, you would want to get your hands on a few a choose from the selection. This way you can find a bokken you love and is perfect for your needs. Come into the shop if you are nearby and try them all out.
Either way you'll be buying a good solid, reliable training bokken suitable for most Japanese Martial Arts and one that if you look after it will last you a lifetime. Comes with a plastic tsuba, thats comes in black.

We have a few different options for posting your items at Enso Martial Arts Shop. Prices vary depending on the overall order, weight, size etc. The checkout page will automatically workout the possible options for you.
We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Royal Mail 2nd Class signed - Pretty slow service but will get there eventually. We will try and post it the same day the order comes to us, but not always possible for us. More than likely we will post the next day or day after that. Only possible for small lightweight items, as heavy items are more expensive than UPS.
UPS Standard - Order before 12pm and we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next day. If you order after 12pm we can still pack it and have it ready but it is less likely to be collected the same day (still possible though, depends when the UPS man comes) and will arrive the day after that.
UPS Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:
