Suburi Bokken Sword Description

This suburi bokken sword is quite a bit heavier than the standard size bokken. This is to help you build up your strength and technique to help you with your sword work development.  Initially, the bokken may not feel that much heavier but because of the extra leverage you get from it’s length your soon notice your arms buring from the practice. Made from Red Oak, this Suburi Bokken sword is tough but shouldn’t need to be as you’ll never need to connect it to anything. It's purely for solo practice of drills and technique. One of these should last you a lifetime. 


This is a perfect piece of training equipment for anyone who practices with a bokken. Styles like Aikido, Ninjutsu, Kendo, Iaido and many more. The bokken is about 50% heavier than most standard bokken which doesn't sound like much, but the extra weight and leverage on the end of the Bokken really gives you arms a serious workout and helps with building up precison of your cuts.


You will not be able to fit this in a saya or scabbard as it is not intended for drawing practice. Neither will it be supplied with a tsuba as it isn’t used for partner work.


Advice from the shop on Suburi Bokken Sword

“No advice of these really, if you think you need to buy one, then you should know all there is to know about them. Try 100 practice cuts each morning on each arm. That’ll get the muscles working.”

Doug Swift – Enso Martial Arts Shop

I bought an excellent suburito. Fast shipping and good quality. Only complaint is that the finish is a bit slippery, but that should help me work on my grip.
