Buying weapons

Hi everyone,

Long time no post. I'm back in Japan and without my weapons. Just wondering if anyone knows of any good places to buy weapons in the Osaka or Kobe area? After a Bokken and Jo.

Also, from memory, what's a good size for a Jo? I'm about 167cm so what would be the best size?

Thanks everyone,

Todd

Re: Buying weapons

The Jo is usually 50" or 54". But it should come up to your armpit as another way to measure the length.

Re: Buying weapons

Thank you everyone for the advice. I went with Tozando and spoke with them directly about sizing. Much appreciated.
