Buying Guide

Foam Training Swords

These foam training swords are a great way to safety hone your skills and they are made for light combat use, so they won't fall apart on Christmas Holiday like many toys. Challenge your cherished person with the other foam sword and see who will win the rights to the last Christmas cookie. I have owned several version of these over the years and found the adults at the Christmas party loving them more than the kids did.

These also make a great choice for kids to practice their skills safety, without concern for cuts or wounds.

Retro Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mini Arcade

Let nostalgia make your Karate Man into a little boy again as he screams in disbelief. A slight warning may be needed, because you might not be able to pry your guy away from the game until he beats the boss level. I recommend casually "accidentally" unplugging the power cord (joking).

Like myself, a lot of guys love a good retro fighting game. It's also a great choice for kids or even a play room or man cave.

A Real Ninja Suit

Who goes there? Nobody would know in a real ninja suit. Are the kids too good at catching Santa putting out the presents? You may need to open this one early for some super stealthy parenting action.

This high quality ninja suit is the real deal. It's something a lot of martial artists have always wanted, but didn't convince ourselves to spend the money on.

Reuse for kids birthday themed parties, Halloween, or actual ninja practice!

Fitness Sledgehammer

One of the coolest ways to work out and get huge results while having fun in a very manly way. Many girls may have a harder time with this type of training but then again I've met some females who can put me to shape in strength and stamina.

This is a really cool weight, in Karate we call this training Hojo Undo. This is definitely a way to challenge your (adult) special athlete and keep them happy and healthy.

Dragonfly Katana

This is not your kids toy sword. This is a real life Katana made by a reputable sword company (they also make some awesome cutlery ... yum!). I actually personally keep a live katana on the wall for home protection and I have my other swords in my dojo room. This sword should probably only be purchased for experienced individuals, or cutting enthusiasts.

With great power comes great responsibility young Samurai!

Ninja Star Magnets

Need an awesome stocking stuffer? Who doesn't love some cool ninja stars that look like they are stuck in the fridge.

Side note: I literally stuck these to my Harley Davidson gas tank, and it looked really cool.

Strike Training Dummy

Every Dojo or Martial Arts training center has this famous style of training dummy / punching bag. Give the gift of serious training at home with some legit gear this Christmas.

Makes for some great footage on Instagram. Also makes a nice coat rack / place to hang a purse (my wife).

Bonus Gift Idea

Samurai Themed BJJ Gi

This is something I wouldn't personally buy (I don't do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu right now) but I just thought it was so cool I had to include it. If your Martial Arts Lover likes to grapple then this is the coolest thing they could show up to Roll in starting up classes in the new year.
