These White Oak Hanbo are a great looking alternative to the red oak Hanbo. Used in the majority by Ninjutsu practitioners, but also on occasion by traditional Japanese Ju Jitsu practitioners too. Hanbo are an extremely versatile weapon and sit somewhere between techniques from Escrima stick fighting and Jo Staff techniques. they can be sued from striking, blocking, throwing, locking and disarms. The techniques to practice are endless and practitioners will enjoy the options available to them. A very under utilised weapon that really should have more of a position in Japanese Martial Arts weapons.
Made from white oak hardwood, the White Oak Hanbo is extremely hard, tough and durable and withstand a huge amount of training and punishment inflicted upon them. It will stand up to some abuse, but don’t forget it is wood. Being a natural product, wood has the capacity to break so a real beating could land you with a broken stick. Look after your staff and it will last you for years.
Made in the standard Hanbo length of 3ft / 36 inches / 91cm. You can also buy the Jo Case to store and carry it in.
"If you really want to have the best possible staff, take some sandpaper to the varnish and give it a few coats of linseed oil. It’ll make a massive difference to the feel of the staff."
