What is Niten Ichi Ryu?

Niten Ichi Ryu
is the school of Kenjutsu founded by legendary and probably the most famous swordsman in Japan, Miyamoto Musashi. Niten Ichi Ryu is mainly known for the two-sword kenjutsu techniques Musashi called 'Niten Ichi' which means "two heavens as one". His Nito technique, used to skillfully use two swords(long and short) simultaneously, attacking from unpredictable angles, are the proof of Musashi's genius.
Practicing Nito-ryu techniques improves one's coordination, speed and awareness.
The Bokken that Musashi made himself, with which he trained and used as a walking stick during the last years of his life, is today in the possession of the city of Usa's Shinto Shrine.

5 of 5 Fantastic experience September 29, 2019
Reviewer: Bernard from ONT Canada  
Placed a small order (2 bokken and a stand) and the order was processed swiftly. It arrived a few days later. I live in Canada!  I ordered something from a distributor in my own province and it took weeks.  Very pleased.

5 of 5 Excellent bokken! September 5, 2019
Reviewer: Aalto from Cedar Creek, Texas United States  
First of all, this was delivered faster than I have had anything delivered in my whole life.  I ordered this sword, and roughly two days later it arrived. Also, it was packaged securely, but not in a difficult-to-open way.

The bokken itself is very nice, it is one of very few bokken intended for Niten Ichi-Ryu practice available online and for a very moderate price. It is well sanded, and using it for long periods of time leaves no residue on the hands. The wood is high quality and has an excellent feel. It is less sturdy than a standard bokken, but the lighter weight makes it incredibly useful for practicing one-handed longsword fighting. 10/10.

5 of 5 Very nicely made lightweight bokken June 14, 2019
Reviewer: Rodney from San Francisco, California United States  
Due to its light weight, it is especially useful for suburi exercises if you have shoulder or wrist pains.

4 of 5 Great buy April 27, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Amsterdam, NH Netherlands  
The quality of the bokken is excellent and delivery was quick. Because it is lighter than a standard bokken it is easier on the wrist when practicing with two swords, but also useful for longer sessions of suburi.
Edit: Because it is thinner and lighter it is not useful for any sort of contact practice.
