They are still studied today, in a modified form. • The introduction of bamboo practice swords (shinai) and armour (bogu) to sword training is attributed to Naganuma Shirozaemon Kunisato during the Shotoku Era (1711–1715). Naganuma developed the use of bogu and established a training method using the shinai.
