About Us

The jo is approximately four feet long and fashioned from Japanese oak and is used primarily as a weapon to attack or counter an aggressor similarly armed, or to defend and subdue if unarmed. Using the jo can help all aspects of Aikido training especially body co-ordination and tai-sabaki as well as ma-ai (distancing) when working with a partner.
