"Sho-Shin" Beginner's Mind.
Sho-Shin (初心) 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!


Go-Shin: "Enlightened Mind"

Go-Shin (悟心) comprises of two Chinese characters. Go, or Satori(悟), literally means "understanding", and  is a Zen Buddhist Term for the realization of a state of epiphanic  enlightenment.? Shin, or Kokoro(心), literally means 'heart', and can be translated as  'the heart of things' or 'feeling'.

Go-Shin refers to  having an attitude or willingness to seek to understand the heart of things.

As a natural progression from our Sho-Shin  shinai, we named our best koto shinai Go-Shin because it is our willingness to  seek to understand that will carry us through our lifelong journey on the path  of kendo.
