Wooden Weapon - 50'' Hardwood Jo
Diameter: approx. 1'
Some martial artists use a dowel rod as a jo, but it's a very soft wood - and that doesn't quite fit what traditional masters chose for their jo staff. This 50" hardwood jo is a good heavyweight jo. The hardwood jo is covered with a splinter-resistant finish, allowing you to slide the jo smoothly and quickly. You know what they say: Slow is smooth, smooth is fast. Approximately 1 inch in diameter. This staff is perfect for practicing your bo staff kata in confined spaces, as well.
