Tozando is proud to introduce it's new "Tora" Kendo Kote.
Needless to say, proper grip of the shinai is paramount in Kendo.
With its special head construction, the Tora gives you instantly the perfect grip over the Shinai Tsuka.
With its 5 kazari-ito braids and new cut, Kote fist is engineered to shape your fingers positions in accordance with the proper way taught by teachers.
Your fingers will naturally roll themselves around the tsuka from little finger to index. No more "pincerlike hand", or lengthy process to break the Kote into the proper Te-no-uchi shape.
By breaking the Kote head cushioning in 6 parts, it will get you a never experienced before precision and finesse of grip down to each of your knuckles.
Being Orizashi (strong cotton weave fabric), the Kote easy to use and quick to dry.
The Neo-leather palm is extremely resistant to humidity and sweat and dries faster that deerskin.
The right forearm Futon protection is also thicker, offering better protection for repeated kote-uchi practice.
Paramount for beginners helping them to get the gist of proper Te-no-uchi faster, the Tora will also please advanced practitioners and teachers for it's comfort and ease of use in regular, even intensive training.
