Shop our range of Jo staffs. The 4ft Jo staff is one of the most versatile types of staff and is put to use by Jodo practitioners. We offer Jo staffs in a range of materials including Hardwoods, Graphite, Bamboo, Rattan, Wax wood, and Aluminium. We offer a range of profiles in including straight cross-sections for maximum strength, and tapered for speed and reduced weight.
Our Red Oak, White Oak, Black Oak, and Ash Jo staffs are the most traditional and offer strength and rigidity. Our bamboo and rattan staffs are made of natural materials and create a lighter weight staff with a little more flexibility. The Graphite Jo staffs offer a good balance of strength and rigidity whilst being extremely lightweight. This makes them perfect for demonstrations as spins and catches will be much easier.
We also offer a range of 3' Hanbo (Half Staffs). These are traditionally used as walking sticks and offer some of the advantages of both the jo staff combined with the size of a bokken.
