When looking at Bogu they often come with either 3mm, 5mm or other measurents which can be confusing to first time buyers. These numbers simply refer to the distance between the lines of stitching on the Bogu. Paying attention to the manner of the stitching in this way is crucial for beginners who are choosing their first set.
The narrower the space between the stitches, the thinner the core material becomes, and some shock absorption is lost. However, if you increase the stitch intervals, the thickness remains and shock absorption is increased. This is very important for equipment designed to protect you during training.
Although there are many kinds of materials used in Kendo Bogu sets such as deer leather, artificial leather, and orizashi cotton - our recommendation for beginners is the "orizashi" style. Orizashi is a breathable cotton material (like Kendo gi) which dries quickly. It is also stretchy and soft and will fit you comfortably throughout your many Kendo practices.
In Tozando, some members of staff are 7th-dan Kendoka, who not only teach, but are also engaged in product development, using their experience and perspective of being Kendo practitioners themselves. Kendo Bogu craftsmen also work within our company's own studio. All of our staff study hard to develop new products to satisfy Kendoka all over the world.
Tozando Kendo Bogu is crafted with optimum protection in mind, so try it on and feel the difference when you practice!
