Shindo Yoshin Ryu's bokken reflects the characteristics of an older styled Daito, with a deeper Sori and longer than normal Tsuka. The kenjutsu kata of Shindo Yoshin Ryu are very subtle, employing tactics suited to the weapon's unique dimensions and balance.
Takamura Yukiyoshi, the late headmaster of the Takamura Style Shindo Yoshin Ryu personally made the weapon used as the prototype for Tozando's Shindo Yoshin Ryu bokken.

What is Shindo Yoshin Ryu?

Shindo Yoshin Ryu is a sogo bujutsu founded by a Kuroda Clan retainer, named Matsuoka Katsunosuke.
Matsuoka mastered several styles of Jujutsu and Kenjutsu during his life and consolidated many concepts from these various schools into his own style which developed during the late Edo Period.
The Shindo Yoshin Ryu mainline survives under the leadership of Dr Fujiwara Ryozo in Tokyo while the Takamura ryuha survives in the USA under the leadership of Tobin E Threadgill, the late Takamura Yukiyoshi's senior exponent.

5 of 5 Excellent product August 26, 2016
Reviewer: Tobin Threadgill from Evergreen, Colorado United States  
This is simply the best SYR bokken commerically available.  It is durable, well balanced and being made of shiro kashi, feels very alive in the hands.

Takamura sensei would be quite pleased with its overall quality. We in Shindo Yoshin ryu owe Tozando thanks for making this excellent weapon available.

5 of 5 TSYR bokken June 21, 2016
Reviewer: Bien Nguyen from Long Beach, California United States  
Fantastic bokken! Very well made with a little heft to it. It has great balance (tip light), despite the weight, the bokken feels like a much lighter bokken when in hands.  Superb quality! I have had mine for 5 years now with many trips and seminars, and it's holding up great. Highly recommended! I wish Tozando make a Wakizashi and a Tanto to match.
