The mokuju is a wooden rifle used in the modern budo of jukendo. It simulates a bayonet and is used to thrust at the opponent.
Our mokuju are hand crafted by the traditional Aramaki Workshop of Miyazaki Prefecture. Renowned for their out standing craftsmanship and attention to detail.
The mokuju is available in two types, one for shiai - competition - and one for regular training known as kokutai. The shiai version is slightly lighter and does not feature the grooved sides. The kokutai version has grooves on the outside and a mroe realistic stock as well as being slightly heavier - so as to resemble a genine rifle mroe closely.
Kokutai Version: Approximate Length - 166cm, Weight - 1.4kg, Varnished
Shiai Version: Approximate Length - 166cm, Weight - 1.3kg, Varnished
