FREE SHIPPING IN THE USA
From the world of "Chanbara" - the Japanese Sword Sport - this set of sparring swords have a flexible center core with soft absorbing EVA foam covering and long lasting ABS handle, allowing you to spar at full speed with no holding back, and needing only the bare minimum of protective equipment (usually just a helmet of some type or eye protection).
Chanbara, also known as 'Spochan' in Japan, was created in the 1970s by Tetsundo Tanabe, a security company executive and Kendo expert from Yokohama. The goal, to promote a free-form sport similar to Kendo, but free of its extremely strict and lengthy code of rules.. Just one hit anywhere on the body decides the match..
For the more casual western enthusiast, these are quite simply, a huge amount of fun. You can really got at it, though pommel strikes with the ABS plastic handle are definitely NOT a good idea - and eye and head protection is generally recommended.
These are NOT toys - at least, not for kids. Guaranteed by SBG to hold up to frequent use for 1 whole year from the date of purchase!
