Kanji inscriptions for wooden weapons

Additional martial art kanji recommendations

Years ago, our website listed over a thousand kanji selections. Unfortunately, the modern internet platforms will not accommodate a simple mechanism to add these to an order. However, it's still possible to access our old websites via a service called the "Way Back Machine"

If you can't find a suitable kanji on the options tab of a particular product, by special order we'll still add these kanji of years ago to your bokken, jo, staff, or any of our products that accept calligraphy.

Taken from the rare Japanese Martial Art Character Dictionary of Thomas R. Jenkins twenty something years ago, we curated a large selection of characters suitable for wooden weapons. Peruse the database and let us know by email the Japanese pronunciation as well as the meaning. We'll quote a price and send instructions on how to add that to your order.
