The Kiwami Bogu - helping bring victory in 4 Major Tournaments
With the end of the
All Japan Kendo Championships on the 3rd and 4th of november this year, Japan's Kendo tournament season has come to a close. This year's champion was none other that Nishimura Hidehisa of the Kumamoto Police. He took victory against Uchimura Ryoichi of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police wearing Tozando's very own Kiwami bogu. This was a rematch and once again Nishimura managed to take the victory with two excellent debana kote in quick succession.
This is the fourth major tournament this year that the Kiwami bogu has protected its kenshi in the finals. Ando Sho wore it in his victories at the
World Championships (both Individuals and Teams) as well as helping secure Hokkaido's victory in the
All Japan Prefectural Tournament. Then Nishimura Hidehisa used in his stunning victories in the All Japan Police Championships and All Japan Kendo Championships. We are proud that the best Kendo athletes in Japan continue to use Tozando's Bogu.

Read on to find out more about why our equipment is still chosen by the best Kenshi out there. We would also like to congratulate Nishimura Hidehisa on his second All Japan victory.
