TENHA is our deluxe Madake Jodan Shinai, which has been especially developed for use by exponents of Jodan no Kamae. Practicing Kendo from Jodan results in a somewhat different hand position on the Shinai, and TENHA is made to allow for that. Featuring a longer Tsuka (handle) section - and not only a longer Tsukagawa (grip leather) - TENHA's handle is actually shaved to be longer, so that the Shinai can be correctly balanced for this use. Naturally, a longer Tsukagawa is also included.
Each TENHA Jodan Shiai is made from a single bamboo plant, which provides the four slats with the best flexibility and durability.
Size - Men's 39 (510g+)
SET OF 3 SHINAI!
All Shinai from Mikatsuki Budogu are made using bamboo grown in our own facility, and all plants are hand selected for optimum performance. Final adjustments are also made by expert craftsmen to ensure a final product that is both well balanced, and reliable.
