Every Irish Stick Fighter needs a high quality training bata! These are handmade by a local craftsman and are constructed of solid hickory. Each stick is handcrafted from furniture-quality solid hisckory and undergoes at least eight rounds of sanding before receiving three treatments of oil to protect and bring out the beauty of the wood. Every bata is laser engraved with the O'Mordha Faction logo, and is designed to be a high quality addition to any stick fighter's training arsenal.
Two options for shaft shape are available; see below for option descriptions. Shaft dimensions are at least 1" by 1"; length should be calculated by halving your height in inches and adding 1.5" (so for example, someone who is 6' would order a 37.5" stick). If longer than 41" is needed, please reach out to us through the contact page. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
Training Batas - Hickory
Batas can be wiped down with a clean, damp cloth if needed; oiling is recommended at least monthly for the first year with a wood oil such as tru-oil or Danish oil. Make sure oil is completely dry before using, to minimize slippage.
