Kendo Kote

When buying kote alone, there are two types: hand stitched and machine stitched. Hand stitched kote have better shock absorption, but machine stitched kote are cheaper while still maintaining high quality. It's also important to pay attention to the distance between the stitches on the futon. As it gets smaller, the futon material gets compressed and the shock absorption is reduced. If you look only at the shock absorption, bogu with a wider stitch distance is recommended for beginners. >>>Read more

When choosing kendo kote, getting kote that fit correctly is the most important thing. If the size is not correct, it can be hard to hold the shinai, difficult to develop your grip, and it may also lead to bad habits that can take time to correct. To get the correct kendo kote gloves measurements, it’s best to ask someone to help you measure.
During examinations, your gear and the impression you give can be important. Bogu with narrower distance between stitches has a more refined look and can give you more presence.
After buying new kote, it’s important to massage and beat the part around the back of the hand to loosen it up and make it easier to use.
Kote are the bogu that takes the most hits, so it will be the gear that needs the most replacing. For those who practice every day we recommend that you keep a few pairs on hand.
At Tozando, we have many types of high quality bogu made by our highly trained craftsmen. We also have many kendoka on our staff, including a 7-dan instructor, who help with product development. We strive every day to develop and create new, well-loved kendo products.
