Jo - is a cylindrical straight wooden pole, length 128 cm, diameter 25-28 mm. The dimensions of jo depend on personal parameters and preferences. Joe is used as a weapon in many martial arts for kata training, paired with other jo and bokken. The jo can be used to strike, like a sword, like a naginata, with wide sweeping movements, like a spear, with stabbing pins. Both sides are used as a shock surface, unlike one side of the sword. Maai (combat distances) jo can vary depending on the grip that is applied. Thanks to such characteristics as speed and changeable maai - this is a formidable weapon in the hands of an experienced master.

Size: 128 cm (50.4") (diameter 24 mm, diameter 27 mm)

European Hornbeam is one of the woods called “ironwood". It's hard, takes sheering forces well, and is almost exemplary for practice weapons.

** The black and brown jo are treated with a special multilayer black/brown impregnation and oil, which gives it an excellent appearance and provides extra protection against moisture.
