Jissengata Dobari-style Madake Shinai - Shouryuu

Jissengata Dobari-style Madake Shinai - Shouryuu

Alternative Views:

This is a Jissengata Shinai for Shiai, which features a thick grip (27mm) and body in Dobari-style made with Japanese Madake Bamboo. The Kensaki (tip) is made slimmer to promote the feeling of speed when swinging your Shinai and to keep the balance of the Shinai towards the Tsuka, which also makes the Shinai feel lighter to handle.

*Please note that due to the thick grip, the Standard Tsuba will not fit out-of-the-box, you will have to adjust the size of the Tsuba manually. Alternatively, if you send us a note in-beforehand, we can do this for you before shipping your order.

5 of 5 perfect balance of light, but still sturdy October 26, 2018
Reviewer: Dave from Oxfordshire  
The slightly larger handle diameter creates a greater feeling of control (and consequently less unconscious over grip), coupled with  the balance is what really makes this shinai sing in the hands. Should also be noted it seems to be more resistant to damage for a jissengata, which are usually much more fragile for keiko use
