The Animus - formidable protection, effortless fit, traditional styling

This bogu's 8mm cross-stitching harkens back to the traditional designs of the first Kendo bogu. Back in the edo period, bogu were hand-stitched in a grid pattern, often using a 2.5bu (7.6mm) stitch width. Whilst machine-stitched, the Animus's grid pattern and 8mm width gives it many of the benefits of hand-stitched bogu: supple fit, additional protection and ease of movement.

The result is a sturdy bogu with a thick futon that provides plenty of protection, but at the same time moulds to your form to provide an excellent fit. This not only makes it comfortable to put on and receive strikes in, but also to move and attack in. This makes the Animus perfect for use in everyday Keiko by all levels of Kendoka.

Thanks to it's excellent protection from the 8-mm stitching and thick futon this bogu functions exceptionally well for motodachi users. Your students and partners can focus on powerful men strikes without fear of hurting you or compromising their technique.

Furthermore it is the details that set this bogu apart. The spirit uses genuine smoked deerskin for the tenouchi palms so you get the best response and feedback from your kote. This means you can strike and move easily, unrestrained by your armor.

Like all our bogu the Animus comes with our 3-year guarantee and free international shipping. All necessarry chichikawa, himo and a tenugui are all included with this bogu set as well.
