Shinai maintenance

The shinai is the main gear piece in Kendo and Kendo practice. A bad shinai is the most probable cause for accidents hence it requires regular maintenance and extensive checks on a regular basis (before, during and after practice). Below there are two links to some good resources we found on the Internet about this topic:
