White Oak Bokken Description

Bokken have existed as long as Katana or Samurai Swords have existed. They are the perfect training tool to replace Katana as practicing sparring drills with live Katana can be pretty dangerous. These White oak bokken are a great looking alternative to the standard red oak bokken for many Japanese martial arts. They are used by many styles including Kenjitsu, Aikido, Japanese Ju Jitsu and Ninjutsu. They are perfect for partner work, drills and forms. If you purchase one of our plastic saya, which fit the White Oak Bokken, they are great for practicing drawing sword work too, like Iaido.  


Some people will claim that the white oak is lighter, harder, softer, better to train with, has more qi / ki flowing through it. We at Enso Martial Arts haven’t found this. They are just as good as the red oak bokken and each individual 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. Customers that come into the shop can do this, but, of course, it is slightly more difficult when buying online. We are happy to choose on for you, so if you have a specific preference, simply call us up and we'll hand pick one out for you matching your specific needs.


Even if you don't contact us befor eyou buy one, 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. 


Advice from the shop on White Oak Bokken

“Let’s be honest, wood is not indestructible and even though these White Oak Bokken will take a lot of punishment they are not toughened steel. Do your training and don’t make an effort to break the thing and it will last you a lifetime.”

Doug Swift – Enso Martial Arts Shop

Courier Tracked - Order before 1pm, we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next working day, this is not a weekend service. It is fully tracked and we will send you the tracking number when we process your order.
Hermes - In our experience an extremely slow service, we cannot guarantee it will arrive. It isn't an option on the website for good reason, so if you want this pitiful service and your parcel thrown into a random hedge near your house, if you're lucky, just to save about £2 then simply call us on 0117 942 5832 and we can process your order over the phone. 
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:

Good quality and a good weight. Makes movement to heavier options e.g suburi bokken more comfortable.
