Taking Care Of Your Wooden Martial Arts Training Weapons

Regarding the care and feeding of your wooden martial arts training weapons.  

Before each training session one should examine any wooden training weapons for splinters, cracks, or breaks. 

When in doubt but the training tool aside and borrow or use another one.  

Same with after each training session- check for any splinters or cracks and assess or repair them for the next class.  

Every few months or as needed consider lightly sanding the wooden training weapon followed by applying lemon oil or some other wood oil to prevent the wood from drying out and warping.  

And of course, naturally one should never practice with real training weapons- no shinken training tools.

Located in Westchester New York, the Bujinkan Shinmyoken Dojo is a martial arts training group founded in 2005 with the aim of coming together as martial arts friends to study the Japanese martial art of Masaaki Hatsumi through the lessons of the Bujinkan dojo.

As friends (buyu) we come together to grow, learn, and share our individual potential in this wonderful martial art.
