The "MICHI" model is a light weight, easy to use Kote with great durability and impact absorption, at a very competitive price! By using a new type of padding, we have been able to produce a extremely lightweight, yet thicker and more protective type of Futon for this Kote.
Thanks to the carefully prepared materials and the skills of our craftsmen, we have constructed this Kote so that the Kote Himo will not shift and open up the Kote unnecessary with time, which is a very common problem.
This Kote also provides great protection from hits, we have also designed the right-hand Kote so that the Futon is 20% thicker to protect the hit zone, and the left-hand Kote so that it's slightly thinner to make it easier to move with.
This Kote also features our Oji-cut wrist, providing a much more natural angle for the wrist when wearing the Kote.
We have also designed the Kote-atama so that it will be easier to grip your Shinai, thanks to the natural grip shape.
Orizashi cotton also dries Kote very fast and is very easy to maintain, so it's a prefect choice for your everyday training and highly recommended for any Kendoka! Experience the unbelievable performance for this price range! So why not trying this MICHI!

shipping is super fast December 29, 2017
Reviewer: Michael Huang from Cerritos, California United States  
received my Kote few days after ordered. It's faster than Amazon without prime. The Kote looks good but kind of stiff, need to try it out after new year.

Size matters September 8, 2017
Reviewer: MARTIN PINZON from houston, TEXAS United States  
It feels a little to tight. also there are no little ventilation holes in the palm area. But they feel a lot better when someone hits kote

Really protective but... July 9, 2017
Reviewer: Andrew Louie  
At first, the kote felt kind of stiff and it took a while to get used to. However, after several practices, the fabric softened and became much more enjoyable to use. It has pretty good padding on the knuckles and the extra paddling on the right hand definitely helps! However, after using it for three months, the kote palm ripped at the edge of the thumb, making it very hard to patch by myself. Fortunately, Tozando's customer service was really nice and they sent an exact replacement kote. So far after three months, the replacement kote hasn't seen any problems and I am really happy Tozando cares for its customers, products, and reputation.

Good Value for money June 21, 2017
Reviewer: Anthony from Brisbane, Australia  
This Kote doesn't take long to break into. After one or two nights of doing jigeiko and regular practice, it began to soften up and mould into shape. To me, it has been very protective, especially when it comes to those heavy hitters (please more left and less right haha). Tozando's quality has proven themselves many times for me.  This kote is very well constructed and design is beautiful in simplicity. Overall, good value for money. Definitely recommend.
