TOKUREN - Special Edition Hand Stitched Bogu made in Japan.

It is well known that Kendo is a popular activity amongst Police officers in Japan. In many prefectures there are specialist Kendo teams, known as the Tokuren, who are designated at the Police force's 'specialist' Kendoka. These officers, often become the best players in Japan, achieving victory in the All Japans and the World Championships.
The Tozando Group have supplied many of Japan's Tokuren players with equipment over the years, and based on the custom specifications that they select, we are now able to offer the ultimate in Jissengata Bogu.
This Bogu is made here in Japan, at our headquarters in Nishijin, Kyoto, by our highly skilled and experienced craftsmen. This set is lightweight and strong, whilst at the same time remaining understated and stylish. As this Bogu set is made by us, and not sourced from a supplier, it is exclusively available and can not be found elsewhere.

Please be aware that each Bogu set is custom made, and like any tailor-made item, a great deal of time and effort goes into producing each one. This is not a 'run of the mill' bogu, and because we are providing you with the very best quality and perfect fit this Bogu can not, and will not be sold 'off the shelf'. Please be aware that in order for us to deliver a top quality, hand-crafted bogu set that delivery may take some time. Please expect to wait approximately 3-6 months for shipping, depending on the specific options you have chosen. We will advise of a more accurate delivery time at the point of order.

5 of 5 Awesome Bogu Sets July 23, 2018
Reviewer: XING LI from Shanghai, Shanghai China  
I bought this my first bogu sets one year ago. Frankly, I very much doubted whether it is worthwhile buying this because I am unfamiliar with bogu. However, this amazing bogu sets proved my worry is superfluous. It fits my body very well and achieves an excellent balance between weight and protection. The hand-stiched texture makes the MEN and KOTE very flexible to wear. For the reason of safety, I updated the metal mask to IBB-PRO, it is really light but of a reliable quality of protection.

Two months ago, I passed the examination of First Dan(cho dan) with my comrade-in-arms, this sweak soaked bogu sets. Thanks a lot!

If you asked me why I choosed Tozando when I had to buy a bogu set. The reason is simple in chinese character絆(mixed bond?). I visited and bought my first kendoyi and hakama in the head store in kyoto, Tozando impressed me a lot as the sincere service and nice commodity. From that time on, I knew my first bogu sets would be definitely bought in TOZANDO!

5 of 5 The superb XXIst century bogu July 30, 2012
Reviewer: Olga Feodorova from Moscow, Russia  
I have been practising Kendo for quite a long period and I have used different Japanese bogu sets. But when I first tried my Tozando bogu set, I not only understood it was made with absolute perfection, I had a feeling that I was born in this bogu - it fitted so well! In my opinion, this is the bogu where surprising craftsmanship and top technology go hand in hand, making it possible to create a light, well-fitting, flexible, though strong protective equipment. Having this bogu, I am very confident of my competition practice now. It is impossible to have low-level Kendo in such a great bogu. :) In other words, it's a great bogu for great Kendo. I also hope it will serve for a long time. What about next time? - Tozando only, no doubt!

5 of 5 Excellent quality April 14, 2012
Reviewer: Nguyen Dong from Van Nuys, CA United States  
I've been using this bogu for seven months and it is very comfortable.  It offers good protection as well as being light weight and flexible for movement.  I upgraded to the Ultimate Roiro Kyoto Urushi Take Do and it is beautiful in performance as well looks.  I believe that this set will be quite durable.  I am very happy with my purchase.

5 of 5 Excellent bogu! January 31, 2012
Reviewer: Ambj├Ârn Holmkvist from Skellefte├ą, Vasterbotten Sweden  
I have been using this bogu for 2 months now and I must admit that it is the best bogu I have ever used.

I got it looking exaktlie like I wanted it and Tozando has provided the best support that I have ever encountered from a kendo web shop.

Im really pleased and I highly recomend it for both shiai and practise. The koté feelt like wearing nothing on your hands and made my wrists really flexible whilst still protekting from the hits of my teammates.

5 of 5 Superb armor January 4, 2012
Reviewer: Brian Sherry from Vienna, VA United States  
After 10 years of doing kendo in an introductory set, I decided to get a new set.  I wanted quality and I wanted a traditional hand-made set from Japan.  The result is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship, but perhaps more importantly a fantastically effective set of kendo armor.

Although I knew the quality would be high, the extremely light weight of this set was a shock. Yet, not one bit of protection as sacrificed to achieve it.  This set is beautiful, very light, and provides complete protection, all at once.  Also, the smaller size of the men-dare allows a wider range of motion in the shoulders and is quite liberating!
