Protect Yourself with style using Top-of-the-Line Bogu Equipment
Whether you are a novice practitioner of Kendo or a top-ranking Kendoka, adequate bogu equipment is necessary for your protection. Your bogu gear is a collection of protective equipments consisting of Kote, Men, Do, and Tare, that absorbs the impact that occurs when hit by a Shinai. Because of this, practitioners are able to make contact with their weapons for during practice and competitions for more realistic training. Modern bogu sets are designed for enhanced flexibility to allow freedom of movement.
The main piece that protects the body is called the Do, or chest protector. Apart from this there is the Men that protects your head and face, the Kote which protects your hands and wrists and the Tare, which protects the waist and legs. Within all pieces is a layer of quilted padding known as the Futon. This part used to be very hard and rigid. The belief was that a stiff, hard surface would best protect against shinai strikes. However, modern knowledge shows us that Futons made for maneuverability and flexibility are actually better at decreasing impact.
Our Kendo equipment reflects the highest standards of Japanese craftsmanship. We use top materials from Japan and employ only high-quality stitching techniques, ensuring that our Bogu sets offer protection and display an aesthetic appeal.
