These are the standard for all Aikido practitioners and many traditional Jiu Jitsu and Ninjutsu practitioners too. They are made in a hard wood red oak a very durable wood and has become the stanard for Japanese style martial arts training weapons. Red Oak is super durable and will take the level of training inflicted upon them. These are a really tough weapon and will stand up to some abuse, but don’t forget it is wood. Wood can break so a real thumping could end up with a broken stick. Look after your staff and it will last you for years.
They come in the standard 50" length, if you want a shorter staff Red Oak can be cut quite easily and doesn't really produce any splinter. However make sure you sand the cut end just in case. If you want a thicker Jo Staff (thicker than the standard 2.5cm diameter) this might be possible, just contact us at the shop if you have this requirement.
Made in the standard Jo Staff length of 4ft / 50 inches / 127cm. You can also buy the Jo Staff 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.”
