"Sho-Shin" Beginner's Mind.
Sho-Shin (??) is a concept in Zen Buddhism that can be  translated as the ' Beginner's Mind'.

Koto style shinai is more like a sword in that  the weight of the shinai is evenly distributed along the blade. This kind of feeling helps the kenshi develop  a sense of conviction in their strike, or 'Ichi-geki-Hissatsu' (To kill with one devastating strike).

We picked the name Sho-Shin for this shinai  because this shinai is all about going back to basics.

Polish your basics with the beginner's  mind!
