Our Shouryu shinai is our broadest madake shinai – its thick grip and broad trunk allows the user to control their centre line with confidence as well as deliver large techniques with solidity much like a Koto style shinai. However the shinai has also been shaped and balanced so that its centre of gravity is pushed towards the grip; whilst remaining solid the tip is still light and able to perform the fast and maneuverable strikes the dobari style is known for.

These 5 shinai are made from genuine Japanese madake bamboo – with thick fibres that are also flexible this bamboo is the perfect material for the hard contact use demanded by shinai. It is resistant to the cracking often displayed by keichiku bamboo and is easier to maintain for long durations. This 5 set is a perfect opportunity for kendoka who enjoy maintain their own shinai and want a lasting supply of parts to rotate out – you will always have a stave on hand that shares the balance of the one you want to replace.

We can ship this set internationally for free as well as provide leather fittings at your discretion.
