Wooden training weapons have been used when learning the art of the sword in Japan, China, and throughout the world. The bokken from the Japanese samurai, being the most famous. Originally, the wooden bokken was most likely copied from similar training tools in China. The bokken became popular as a training tool during the Muromachi period in Japan, between 1336 and 1600 A.D. which was the beginning of the age of the samurai.
In martial arts, wooden bokken are used to train a number of skills – footwork, control, coordination, focus, etc.
Like the wooden bokken, Primal Flow™ Wooden Training Maces are used to optimize the human body's mobility, muscle balance, neuromotor control, hand-eye coordination, and strength which we call state of being "PrimalFit™."
