Information Technical Specs.


is a removable throat protector that follows your every single head movement. The ISG (IBB Safety Guard) will protect your throat from shock to the thyroid cartilage and injury to the carotid artery, when receiving even the most severe Tsuki. Since you donít have to be afraid of the sword tip, you can charge in and aim for the Men with high precision.

Light, easy to use and optimized for training

These are the concepts that the legendary A-1 Series Bogu were built upon. As a collaboration between Tozando and Kanagawa Hakkodo, the A-1 concept was further refined and the new A-1 α Bogu was born.

Using the most popular options from the A-1 series, such as 'Diagonal Cut Mendare' to make the Men as light as possible with a distinct silhouette and a Mengane which has been painted gray inside to widen your field of view by preventing unwanted light reflections on the inside of the Men.
The throat is protected by the detachable IBB Safety Guard, which will protect you against even the harshest Tsuki, making it more safe than ever to do high level Kendo.

The Kote are light and nicely padded, made in Orizashi Cotton to make them soft and comfortable to wear. The Do also features a unique A-1 Alpha Mune Kazari pattern.
and the Tare features 'Diagonal Cut Oodare' to make the Tare as light as possible and Nanamezashi on both the left and right Oodare to make them more flexible and easy to form . In addition to this we have made the Hara-obi slimmer making it more comfortable to wear and easier to move in. The Tare-himo is also made slimmer towards the tip, making it easier to tie.

The A-1 α Bogu uses a new type of padding that has been developed using the joint knowledge of Tozando and Kanagawa Hakkodo to make even softer, more protective and better fitting Men, Kote and Tare.

The legacy of A-1 series

A-1 is a legendary Bogu brand by Kanagawa Hakkodo, enjoying high popularity among Japanese Kendoka for itís high quality and great fit. In fact, the A-1 is well known and used by most All Japan level Kendoka in Japan, including many current and past champions of the All Japan Kendo Championship and World Kendo Championship.
Itís even said that the light and flexible A-1 Bogu is the sign of a winner. Not only is it a Bogu that is good for competition, but itís also great for your everyday Keiko thanks to itís great durability and lightness.
A-1 will without doubt solve any problems you have with your current Bogu, being the no.1 in customer satisfaction.
Try out the A-1 Alpha Men, a collaboration between Tozando, Mitsuboshi and Kanagawa Hakkodo, you won't regret it!

I am an experienced Iaidoka who has just began Kendo. This was my first purchase of bogu and I have to say I am very pleased with Tozando. The bogu is of good quality and the delivery was very quick. Very pleased with the experience.

A-1 Alpha 6mm Orizashi Kendo Bogu Set June 26, 2018
Reviewer: Ash from Melbourne, Victoria Australia  
I am very pleased I went with Tozando for my first bogu set. I appreciate the help from Jack who managed to find me a set that is very comfortable, lightweight and manages to provide optimal protection for men strikes.  

The free delivery was also exceptionally quick.

Great! June 23, 2018
Reviewer: SERGEI NAGAREV from Chekhov , Russia  
Quality is excellent! In size not made a mistake! Teammates made a difference to the presence of a Defender IBB, a new form of oblique stitch on Men, the presence of perforation on Kote.

Perfect! May 21, 2018
Reviewer: Kathryn Doucet from Granby, Quebec Canada  
First Bogu set for me.
I have been suggested from Tozando some Bogu sets from a less expensive, a medium set to a more durable expensive set fit for my kendo experience and am very happy with one of those picks!
I have had a representative follow the purchase from start to finish despite some payment issues from my credit card company and they have been very patient and helpful.
The price was good, was lucky enough to be able to have a payment plan AND I recieved my bogu in lightning speed.

If I need another set, I will definately buy from them again!

Thank you again, Shodo!
