The Shouryu is our broadest shinai. Much like its twin – the Tenryu – this shinai is a dobari with a thick grip, reaching 30mm at the tsuba. It is made from premium Japanese madake making it flexible and resistant to the cracks and splinters associated with the more common keichiku bamboo. What sets the Shouryu apart is its broad body – this endows it with a substantial physicality that becomes apparent in its strong and defined strikes, perfect for controlling the centre and delivering large techniques. Despite this physicality, the shinai remains light and nimble thanks to its tsuba-centric balancing and is therefore exceptionally versatile.

This shinai is recommended for kendoka who like a powerful and solid shinai that maintains the ability to be used for fast and maneuverable waza. This set comes with 3 Shouryu shinai that can be bound with leather fittings in advance at your request. It also comes with free international shipping.
