Meet Lot, the loud, powerful, confident, and funny kenshi who needed a tiny shinai bag and started a unique textile empire.

5. Lot has practiced kendo for half of her life, since the age of 4.

Lot has been quite serious since day one!

4. Lot’s small-ness led to the launch of Kendo Girl Inc in 2014 due to the need for a super tiny shinai bag and none being available online.
