Jodo equipment

Jodo is normally practiced wearing a dark blue or white hakama (wide pleated trousers) and keikogi (training jacket) with an obi (belt) under the hakama. A nafuda or zekken (name plate) indicating one's name and dojo or country, if attending an international event, is worn on the left side of the chest but there is no outward indication of grade. In addition, practitioners use a white oak jo and bokuto or bokken (wooden sword).
