HISSHOU is a deluxe Madake Jissengata Shinai, which features a large 'Dou' section, placing the balance close to the hands, and narrows to a fine light, tip. This makes HISSHOU easy to maneuver, and perfect for multiple, sharp strikes.
Unlike other Shinai, HISSHOU is a SEI-HAKKAKU style Shinai, which means that the handle has been carved into an exact octagonal shape - which is said to feel very comfortable in the hands, and gives a unique feeling when held. This style was developed a few years ago, and is the choice of many high level Sensei.
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.
