Jissen Gata class Shinai is known for a thick Haribushi (body of the shinai) and Normal Kensaki (tip). This shifts the center of balance of the Shinai towards the Tsuka (Handle), and give the Shinai a sense of weightlessness as the Shinai sits comfortably in your grip.

The Ashura is made for those who prefers a shorter length grip.  This type of Shinai is preferred by Kendoka whose style of Kendo is light and fast. Only a size 37 Tsuka can be fitted on the Ashura Shinai.

Bamboo: Keichiku

Shinai Type: Large Haribushi and Normal Kensaki tip
