Description
 
Keishi Ryu Bokken is widely used among Police officers for training. Keishiryu Kata was developed in the Meiji Era (1868 - 1912). In the Meiji era, the Kata was composed with the Boku-Tachi-Gata (Wood Long Sword Kata), Tachi-Iai, and Jiu-Jitsu, however currenlty only the Boku-Tachi-Gata is being taught. In 1877 (Meiji 10), during the Seinan Sensou (South Western war), the Battotai was highly aclaimed by its performance, and since then, Jukendo and Jiu-Jitsu has been taught at the police. In order to unify the technique teaching, Keishiryu has been developed.

It's a Beast December 6, 2013
Reviewer: Keith from Ohio  
This bokken is amazing.  I looked at many bokken on the site, and ordered this one.  One of the main reasons was because of the 11 inch tsuka (handle).  As well as another review saying it was heavy.  I like heavy.  And this bokken is defiantly heavy.  But it still have great balance, unlike Suburi's.  Which are just plain heavy, and weighted toward the front.
The only downside to this bokken for me, is that it's a little fat.  But, I'm have smaller hands.  So this shouldn't be a problem for most people.

First Rate June 20, 2012
Reviewer: Read Omohundro from Muskogee, Oklahoma  
After the destruction of my 20 year old bokken, I purchased this model to replace it. This bokken exceeds expectations! Though heavier than most, this bokken meets the needs of any practitioner desiring to train hard with bokken on bokken contact.  Additionally, this bokken's balance is superb.

Of note, be prepared to modify your tsuba. The width of this model requires some tsubas to be widened in order to fit properly.

I expect this model to last me another 20 years.
