Kote are never enough: an extra pair for Shiai? or two pairs to alternate for Keiko, to make them dry properly between sessions?
Or perhaps a brand new pair, to forget the old and battered ones that sometimes cannot protect you properly anymore?

Our Master Craftsmen, based in Iwate, have a wealth of experience they will gladly share with you,
when you order your own, one-of-a-kind, inimitable Custom-made Kote!

Kote can be personalized in many ways: why not having your specially designed Kote,
just like the strongest Kenshi in Japan does?

You can improve and freely customize their functionality, by choosing the features to make your Kote more comfortable:
be it extra protection or extra flexibility, easy to wear or fast to dry, synthetic with anti-bacterial BioClean treatment or made with traditional materials.

You can choose the stitching quality of your Kote: Fit-stitched, Machine-stitched, Hand-stitched and
Tornado-stitched Futon, in 100% Orizashi cotton or finished in Deerskin.

You can change their look: Kazari Ito, Matsuri Ito, Yabane or Himo in different colors.
If you can't find the option you are looking for, just tell us, and we will consult our craftsmen for you!

Tozando wins again December 8, 2017
Reviewer: Rogers Gossett from Memphis, Tennessee United States  
It's been about 20 years since I bought a custom made set of kote and I regret not having done it earlier.  Naturally there are many customized options for this particular set, but I chose to keep things very simple.

This set is much lighter than I anticipated, especially after adding the 10% extra padding to the migi kote.  That padding really makes a difference as motodachi, but it is not at all restrictive when it comes time for keiko.  The biggest noticeable difference for me with this set is the Oji-cut flexible wrist.  It really is a noticeable difference from the old standard flexjoint at the wrist.

Overall, it's a great set right out of the box!

piece of art April 17, 2015
Reviewer: M. from France  
This is the most beautiful and practical kote I have ever seen. My choices were 5 mm cross stitch, yoroigata atama, clarino palm and inden yukiwa & asedomegawa and maybe I would like to order another pair with my original design next time.
