Foam Bokken Sword Description
Sparring with Bokken can be a pretty tricky business, Wooden bokken can hurt a lot and cause a lot of damage and injuries. You can either train at 20% with lots on care, but you won't get the feline got going full pelt. The answer is to get one of these Foam Bokken and you can practice sparring drills with much more comfort than with wood bokken. This is a great option. You can go much harder than is possible than with wooden bokken.
The Foam Bokken is all black colour apart from the tsuba grip which is red. The length of the bokken is foam covered including the handle and the full blade length. The core of the bokken is a plastic, and pretty durable. These foam bokken swords come with the tsuba already built into the foam for good hand protection.
Advice from the shop on Foam Bokken Sword
“The inner core of these foam bokken swords is made of wood, so if you want to test the strength of your bokken against a brick wall or similar. It may not take it. You’ll ruin the foam too. Take it easy and only aim to hit your training partner and all should be fine.”
