    Default Finding bokuto and iaito in Brazil

    I was wondering if anyone here might be able to be of any assistance here. I have a student who has recently relocated from Japan to Brazil for a few years because of his job. He was unable to bring his training weapons with him and is having trouble locating a place in Brazil where he can purchase an iaito or even at minimum a bokuto/bokken to continue training with. Having never been there myself any pointers or tips would be most appreciated. My understanding is that the closest large city to where he is is Sao Paulo, but he is located several hours away in a rural area so web or mail order might be more practical, but any advice at all would be welcome.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello Rennis,

    I think Japan has a fairly large martial arts presence in Brazil and I suggest he contacts one of the aikido or kendo groups there. If you send me a PM, I can give you some names and contact details.


    Best wishes,

    I figured that was the case, but it is a bit out of my usual territory if you will. Thanks and PM sent.
