What is Hokushin Ittoryu?

Hokushin Ittoryu created by Chiba Shusaku is considered as the pioneer which introduced the scientific approach to Kenjutsu training. It's legacy is enjoyed by modern Kendo practitioners.
Based on highly effective Itto ryu techniques and innovative step by step teaching methods the style was one of the most popular Kenjutsu schools in late Edo period. It should also be noted that some of the major historical figures who were the driving force during the restoration period studied in this school, Ryoma Sakamoto and Yamaoka Tessyu (the founder of Itto Seiden Muto Ryu), just to name a few.
This style also includes Naginata techniques in its technical repertoire.

Super heavy oar like bokken September 15, 2018
Reviewer: John from Philippines  
Great balance despite the heavy weight. Tsuka is longer than a standard bokken's allowing you to balance your hand placement and not injure yourself during suburi.

What a bokken should be... May 21, 2018
Reviewer: Christopher George from San Jose, California United States  
As a lifetime practitioner, I have a closet full of assorted bokuto - this Hokushin bokken was a pleasant game changer. Firstly, just considering what this bokken offers at a glace - amazing bang-for-your-buck value...then coupled with Tozando's excellent competitive pricing, top quality stock and outstanding customer service - I am amazed this koryu bokken is not more popular. Considering the large size & weight, the feel and balance this bokken comes with just speaks volumes for the master artisans crafting this design. Also, this bokken occupies that rarest of spaces within the spectrum of designs, which translates to versatility in that this Hokushin bokken can pull multiple duties within anybody's given study path. Highly recommended, and once again thanks Tozando!

Excellent quality June 19, 2017
Reviewer: Anatolii Rykov from Lviv Ukraine  
I'm not practicing koryu, so cannot comment if this bokken meets Hokushin Itto Ryu requirements, but it definitely fits my expectations. I looked for heavier thicker bokken with ~75 cm blade and 30 cm handle. This one is a perfect match. Fit and finish is outstanding.
