Information Sizing

Yoroigata Style Kendo Bogu

The Yoroigata's design is derived from the maginificant and forceful appearance of the yoroi armor worn by the samurai.

Dragonflies, the Heralds of Victory

The Tombo is a dragonfly that is also known as Kachimushi, a victory-bringing insect and the pattern is often found on weaponry such as Japanese swords, clothing and Yoroi armors. Samurai warriors were very fond of using this insect image because it always flies straight forward and never retreats.

What is Fit-stitch?

A Fit-stitched Kendo Bogu, is a machine-stitched Bogu which uses a special stitching method called "fit-stitch", commonly called "Nagazashi" in Japanese, that allows the Futon of the Bogu to become more soft and supple, similar to that of a hand-stitched Bogu.
By making the stitches of the sewing machine longer, the Futon is compressed less whilst being sewn; as a result the Futon of the Bogu becomes softer and more flexible thanks to the "fit-stitch" sewing method.

Another great advantage is that a fit-stitched Bogu is more supple and keeps the shape of the Futon much better than a normal machine-stitched Bogu, which means that the Men, Kote and Tare forms better to the body making them very comfortable.
Also, since the Futon is less compressed by the stitches made into the Futon, the Futon is slightly thicker and offers better protection compared to a regular machine-stitched Bogu of the same quality.
Because the Bogu is sewn using a sewing machine, the price of a Fit-stitched Bogu is a lot lower than any hand-stitched Bogu, making them much more affordable for beginners and intermediate Kendoka. They also offer better protection that the regular-style machine-stitched Bogu and are more soft and flexible, making them more comfortable.
Because of this the Fit-stitched Bogu has become one of the main styles of Bogu used by Kendoka these days.

Really nice bogu set August 20, 2018
Reviewer: Vladislav Manevski from Lindenhurst, Illinois United States  
I was a little bit worried when , I was buying this bogu that the fireflys might be a little too flashy , but I was wrong !  The design actually looks great, but the first thing that made an impression is that the bogu is really soft and easy to move around with compared to my first set which  is also a 3mm stiching .  I’ve used it for a few practices already and it’s not completely broken in ,but even so it feels very comfortable . The mesurements are spot on I guess the guys at tozando’s workshop really know their thing !
This was the first bogu I’ve bought from Tozando , but it’s definitely not the last one !
