Re: bokken style

best thing to do would be to buy one through the club if they do that.

otherwise just a standard white oak should be fine.

i wouldnt go for a niten unless you are doing partner work with someone else who has a niten bokken as they are thinner and chunky bokto bash dents into them. though they are grand for lone work as they are more sword shaped.

get a nice tough wood. and avoid suburi bokto as they are too big.

ninecircles offer a good range too.
