The Kyogoku is a solid dobari style shinai, slightly thicker than normal shinai, but still agile. As a dobari its balance is moved towards the base giving it a light tip. Whilst heavier than most shinai the balance makes it feel much lighter and more maneuverable when striking. It is recommended for kendoka who prefer rapid and crisp techniques as well as counterattacks. However as it is thicker than normal you can maintain control even with a light grip – perfect for a flourishing debana men.

As it encourages quick techniques with its light tip, the Kyogoku is great as a competition shiai – whether you are looking for that swift debana kote or a decisive shodachi this shinai is an excellent choice. It comes in a full set of 3 and can come with leather fittings if you would like. Like all our shinai it comes with free international shipping.

Shinai balance is ok. Everything else is bad.
"Slightly thicker grip" is 25mm, which is not thick by any means. Also, bamboo is very dry, so shinai breaks easily. Pathetic
