Re: Dowel Rod ----> Jo?

Oh, and in case it isn't obvious, Fred's point above is that the standard dowels you see in hardware stores (broom handle blanks, etc) tend to be a cheap hardwood that will shatter and splinter on even light impact. Dangerous on many levels for certain types of practice. If you're just "air swinging" (as in solo Seidokan jogi practice), no worries.
