Ken with Fudo Myo blade

Last version of ken


Short Ninja biken bokken


This version (shorter than common) of Ninja sword is made by info from Shihan Alex Esteve,
 for his Dojo


Shikomi Tessen

This is one of several versions Shikomi tessen, blade hidden in shape of tessen,
 I made this one 2008. for present so if you interested let me know




Te yari

The name Te yari may not be correct but makes sense to me (te -hand and yari- spear), 
the use of this tool is primarily for small spaces or interior, tool length varies from 35 cm to 95 cm, and for same purpose can be used any Yari in shirasaya(pic. below)


version which I like is this from book


here is one of my older training versions

Rubber SENBAN shuriken

The specialties of the historical Togakure Ryu was  the use of a four-pointed throwing blade known as a SENBAN shaken (shuriken)
Size of this rubber Senban  is identical to my metal one, also come in two different thickness of rubber plate 

for now few pics









Rubber Hira shuriken

Here is new pics of my Hira rubber shuriken's

to satisfy everyone's choice, it is possible to get them in several thicknesses(size is also possible to change), 
my standard 4 mm thick are enough if throw them on your Uke, but if you do certain techniques of hitting or stabbing with Shuriken then you need something thicker, such as 6 to 6.5 mm thick, this thicker are also good for longer distance or more realistic feeling evasion of shuriken flying towards you, perhaps even metal but blunt.

My recommendation is always,  get yourself a different (if not size) thickness for all types of training, only one species is not enough.

so here they are,

Teppan

One of the rare and simple tools from the Ninja's arsenal is Teppan
which translated means square plate.
I have not in detail investigating information about this tool, but when I learned more, I'll put all info about them here.

For now, 
I know it can be used as Shaken (Shuriken), means to throw, used for hitting and blocking blades.
Could be used while climbing (inserting into small cracks or gaps on stone or wood), if you know the proper way, it can be tied to end of the rope, or a belt, and so you get a tool similar Kusarifundo, but I did not say that to you, right : )

but generally, only your imagination limits the use of this tool, ANY TOOL, 

if you are real Budoka remember that.


Below  is few picture of Teppan made ​​of black rubber, for training, normally.

I recently found them in a box in my workshop, 
so if someone like to have it, could contact me by e-mail,  like all other equipment which I usually do, here is also the option of customize, by your needs and dimensions,
Dimensions vary, because of this I make them in two sizes and two thicknesses, you'll be able to see that on pictures.

In this way, everyone can adapt to his needs during training.
