  Top Quality BIO Treated Shinai - "KAMAKURA" CHOKUTO Style (Bamboo Only) Size 39

Alternative Views:

KAMAKURA was based on the Design of one of our most popular CHOKUTO model Shinai ISSHO. KAMAKURA was based on Taro Ariga's favorite selection of Shinais. KAMAKURA was custom produced to our specifications after many trials with the Shinai manufacturer. Many high ranking Senseis in Japan prefers CHOKUTO Stlye over the Dobari Stlye Shinais. The bamboo was specially treated with BIO Technology for durability, giving a dark traditional look. Very beautiful finish. "I try to use both CHOKUTO and Dobari Shinais. The reason for that is that they both have a different balance. In Dobari style Shinais, the balance is placed more towards just above the Tsuba, where as for the KOTO style Shinais the balance is throughout the entire blade portion. I use Dobari style Shinais when quick and multiple strikes are required, since it has the weight on the handle portion. I use CHOKUTO Shinai for daily practices since it gives you the feeling of holding a real sword, and it is better for 'One Shot' type Ji-Geiko. KAMAKURA is very effective for Ai-Men (Wait until the last minute for the opponent's attack, and strike before the opponent). If you are satisfied with the quality of our Shinais, I would strongly recommend our new Chokuto stlye Shinai, KAMAKURA. As the Kenshi goes higher in ranks, they tend to go into a 'One Shot' style, and I belive that is the untimate beauty of the Kendo. Win and Hit, instead of Hit and Win." Taro Ariga CEO (Kendo Renshi 7 Dan)

Very nice! November 26, 2008
Reviewer: Semeru from TX United States  
Had my first keiko with this shinai today. I may not be the most experienced kendoka, but I really like the feel of the chokuto style shinai.  This shinai has a thick tsuka and thick staves which makes for a good grip and great impact feeling when hitting^^
Good Stuff! Thanks Ebogu!!!
