TENMA is a Premium Madake Dobari Shinai, which features a large 'Dou' section, placing the balance close to the hands, and narrows to a fine light, tip. This makes TENMA easy to manoeuvre, and perfect for multiple, sharp strikes. TENMA is one of the best balanced Shinai available.
Unlike other Shinai, TENMA is a HAKKAKU Dobari style Shinai, which means that the handle has been carved into an octagonal shape - which is feels 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.
