2. I still have two of my Shinai

and some where in boxes is my old Kendo fit. I out grew it as you might imagine... for my 15th birthday my dad got me this...said to be careful that I don't accidentally cut off a finger or something...

about 1600 US dollars...

4. Sometimes I like to take it out

and practice my kendo moves with it, but its very heavy for me. I still have my shinai to work with and also two bokken, solid wooden swords..both are fairly light.

Bokken

Love seeing videos like this. Helps with my information gathering about the region when my Japan trip comes into fruition
