Shinai bags come in a variety of designs and sizes.
In general they can carry up to 3 shinai
as well as a pocket for accessories. Some
can carry more or also include room for a bokuto. The traditional Japanese style bags are made
from cotton canvas and can feature beautiful designs and patterns. More modern styles can be made from nylon,
leather or PVC and include additional features like shoulder straps and larger
Just like your bogu bag you can choose your shinai
case based on your training. Travelling
to keiko by bicycle will require a strap to keep it on your back and perhaps a
water resistant material in case of bad weather. For a particularly important event like a
seminar or grading you might want to use a beautiful traditional bag.
We have grouped together a variety of styles so you
can match your accessories to your training and make the most of your keiko
whatever the circumstances.
