Bamboo Tanbo Shinai
Made in Japan
Composition: bamboo lath attached loosely and covered with black cloth.
Length: 60 cm | Weight: ~300 g
Equivalent to the Tanbo (short wooden stick) for Taihojutsu, the Tanbo Shinai has the typical manufacturing of fukuroshinai, with loosely tied bamboo slats and covered with canvas, (a rigid linen-cotton fabric), reinforced with piece of synthetic leather. It allows more intense training than with a weapon made of wood. A better shock absorption also means a much greater impact resistance. Its weight is slightly higher than a classic wooden tanbo.
This type of weapon will allow working on shomen and yokomen strikes at mid-distance.
