Light, easy to use and optimized for training, these are the concepts that the legendary A-1 Series Bogu were built upon. As a collaboration between Tozando and Kanagawa Hakkodo, the A-1 concept was further refined and the new A-1 α Bogu was born.

These Kote are light and nicely padded, made in Orizashi Cotton to make them soft and comfortable to wear. The Palm is made with micro-punched Clarino for better breathability and faster drying after practice. The inside of the Kote is also lined with Sillead fabric which besides making the Kote more comfortable, also absorbs sweat and expels moisture, keeping your hand and arm as dry as possible.

The A-1 α Bogu uses a new type of padding that has been developed using the joint knowledge of Tozando and Kanagawa Hakkodo to make even softer and better fitting Men, Kote and Tare.

*Due to huge demand, some sizes of this Kote might run out very fast (especially larger sizes). Order are then served at the next re-stock (usually 10 to 15 days)

The legacy of A-1 series

A-1 is a legendary Bogu brand by Kanagawa Hakkodo, enjoying high popularity among Japanese Kendoka for itís high quality and great fit. In fact, the A-1 is well known and used by most All Japan level Kendoka in Japan, including many current and past champions of the All Japan Kendo Championship and World Kendo Championship.
Itís even said that the light and flexible A-1 Bogu is the sign of a winner. Not only is it a Bogu that is good for competition, but itís also great for your everyday Keiko thanks to itís great durability and lightness.
A-1 will without doubt solve any problems you have with your current Bogu, being the no.1 in customer satisfaction.

Review for A-1 Alpha 6mm Orizashi Kendo Kote April 9, 2018
Reviewer: Anthony Kirkish from La Mesa, CA United States  
These kote feel great on first use and I am looking forward to using these on a daily basis. They have a good weight and feel just a bit more tight than my first set to where it allows for a great grip on my shinai. It also allows for a more responsive feel in striking. All around a great pick.
