SSP Seal

Today in the shinai market, there are many different quality shinais are sold to the Kendokas. Without providing clear specification and source of the shinais, the shinais may not be up to standard and is unsafe to use. In order to prevent accidents in Kendo practice and tournments, which caused by poor quality of shinais , SSP (Shinai Safety Promotion) was introduced by All Japan Kendo Federation to distinguish the authenticity of the Shinai and only a few Kendo Manufacturing Companies have the right to carry this S.S.P Seal on their Shinais. SSP performs quality checked for shinai by AJKF before it can be sold in retail market throughout Japan. The SSP seal is issued when the bamboo and specification of the shinai meet the standards which are established by AJKF.As a result, shinai which has the SSP seal means both bamboo and specification are up to the standard and is safe to use.
