Our Story

We are Shinbudo, located in the Willamette Valley, Oregon. We design and handcraft high-quality training tools for the martial artist who values dedication to their craft.

Dennis King, the craftsman and artist at Shinbudo, has been making training tools from his home workshop for over a decade. Every order that leaves Shinbudo spends hours in Dennis’ hands; from the initial blank to the finished, polished product that you receive. The balance, weight, and feel are the entire focus from start to finish.

All training tools from Shinbudo are crafted with patience and heart at the pinnacle of Dennis’ skill, and intended to be an extension of those who use them. A customer will never receive a tool of which we are not 100% proud. Our goal is to create a tool which will compliment your training for a lifetime.
