Tired of coming away from martial arts practice with serious injuries, practitioners invented the Kendo Shinai to be a powerful alternative to wooden bokken that has the weight and balance of a real sword, but with a specialized design to reduce the chances of injury.
The shinai is made from four bamboo slats that are tied together. This bamboo kendo sword also has a leather covered handle for comfortable gripping and plastic hand guard (tsuba) to protect your fingers. This design lessens the damage even the strongest of impacts can have on practitioners. The bamboo is flexible and the slats are tied together with string, which lessens the force of a blow. This method has turned out to be so effective that bamboo swords are even used for kendo competitions.
Any form of sword fighting can benefit from a lightweight bamboo practice sword that prevents serious injury. While you're learning, it is light enough to allow you to train in proper forms. This will help you master sword techniques without actually swinging a dangerous, sharp steel sword around.
The kendo shinai is the perfect practice sword and is a great choice for any kendoka martial artist. These extremely durable bamboo weapons are going to last through hours of training practice, so buckle up!
