The Shinai is a weapon used for practice and competition in Kendo and various arts to represent a Japanese sword. Sizes and style of shinai vary by overall length. Four bamboo slats are held together by three leather fittings with a plastic hand-guard. We offer a full range of sizes and balances to suit any user.
Shinai are NOT made for contact sparring and must be used under the direct supervision of a qualified Martial Arts Instructor. User assumes all risks and the use of a Shinai for contact sparring voids any product warranty.
