Danny; I make my own from metal rods and squared rods from the hardware store.
Our dojo practices various throws; the 'tip straight to the target throw plus all the flip throws from various distances/ with or without rolls.
The sporting good store has a neat target for bow/arrow shooting that is self sealing that works very well.

If you talk to the guy who drives the van for Guest House Hanata (Ken?) he can get these great rock spikes used in traditional building. VERY hard, VERY sharp and just the right length.

That sounds interesting, can you give me more information?
I definitely want to get some of those spikes.
Those sound like really cool, authentic shuriken to train with.


I'm not sure exactly which hardware shop they come from, somewhere in Koshigaya. They are used to hammer into rock in order to set out string lines. Today of course it is easier to drill into the rock so these rock spikes are a obsolete except for someone who is fanatical in only using traditional methods of construction.

They cost 2000yen per spike from memory.

You could contact Hanata 0489-66-9533 and ask for Ken's (the drivers) number. He should be able to help.

I recently began to study a traditional shuriken throwing waza, and the beginner is taught using chopsticks and a foam bathmat!
ITs safe for inside the house.
Also, to get the throw right, a light chopstick is good for sensitizing the fingers to the proper release feeling.
Once you pick up a metal shuriken that weighs 50 grams, it seems heavy after chopsticks!


That sounds like a good idea.
An idea I stole from another kobudo style was rolled up newspaper wrapped up in duct tape. They are good to throw at people.

I have a friend that studies Negishi Ryu and not too long ago he was showing me some of their methods. He picked up two pairs of wooden chopsticks and drilled all 4 of them into a box of cereal in my dining room. He was maybe 15-18 feet away. He is pretty scary with screwdrivers and daggers too.

I got mine at a hardware store over by the honbu dojo, actually around the corner from Lawsons, they are about 320Yen. Just ask for Konkrito no Hari.
I took them to Someya sensei and Nagase Sensei, they fly well although they are a tad bit light, but the right size.
