Tanren Bo - Martial Arts Conditioning Equipment

The Tanren Bo is a wooden training device used in Japanese Martial Arts such as Budo/Bujutsu, Kenjutsu, Aikido and Iaido. The purpose of the Tanren Bo is to strengthen and develop the wrists and forearms in order to better facilitate the use of a Katana, Bo or Jo.

The Tanren Bo is typically around 3 feet in length and is traditionally made of oak. This training device is basically a large heavy (usually between 5-8 lbs in weight) rectangular lump of wood with a handle (around 10 inches of the overall length). Unlike a Suburito, the Tanren Bo is not conducive to the development of many actual sword techniques. It is specifically used for strength training and conditioning.

For other martial arts training devices, please visit the Training Equipment section.
