Fully Customizable GOBANZASHI JISSEN Bogu

E-BOGU.COM has been leading the evolution of Kendo Bogu making for the past 12 years. This GOBANZASHI JISSEN Bogu consolidates all of our experience and knowledge we have acquired listening to voices from our customers around the world. From high ranking Senseis and world championships players to beginners. This Bogu is very light and flexible, but most importantly, gives you the best protection and comfort.

"I have been doing Kendo for the past 37 years, and I went through many Bogus. But, I still remember the Bogu my grandmother bought me more than 30 years ago. It was a 2 mm machine stitched Bogu, which for a kid at that time, it was too good. I still have it, and look at it when I start designing a new Bogu. To be honest, it was a heavy very Bogu, and it took me a long time to break it in to feel comfortable using it. The Men had a Steel Mengane, which made it very heavy, but I was very happy at that time. This GOBANZASHI JISSEN Bogu, with the advanced technology and craftsmanship, it is a Bogu that is almost half of the weight what it used to be, and you can start wearing it from day one, as if you have been using this Bogu for years. The Men weights just over 2 lb (1.2 kg), Kote just over 1 lb (490 g), and Tare 1.5 lb (660 g). This Bogu will take you to a totally different level of training. The design is very simple and beautiful, using the best material for the Futons. The most remarkable thing about this Bogu is the GOBANZASHI stitching for all the Futons, giving a look and flexibility that only Tezashi (Hand Stitch) Bogu could offer. It is a very comfortable Bogu to wear. My goal is to produce a Bogu that all Kenshis would be looking forward to wearing everyday, for practices, tournaments and Dan promotion exams.

Perfect November 6, 2013
Reviewer: Loïc from La Réunion Island  
I'd like to thank the customers service for their advices and their reactivity for the delivery.

The bogu is perfect. I chose to customize it, and everything is as I expected.

The fabric is very good, and the bogu is very light and confortable. It makes a huge difference with the bogu I used before.

I'm sure this bogu will help me to improve my kendo.

Definitely worth the price! I strongly recommend this bogu for any levels.

Perfect fit January 23, 2013
Reviewer: Masaru Saito from Cincinnati, OH  
I just got the FEDEX package over the weekend. I did not know they deliver on weekends.  The kote fit is perfect. I like the lining on the inner side of the kote. It gives you the soft feeling, when wearing. The men felt a bit tighter, but it will eventually expand, so I prefer to be little tight now. I did not go with the custom do, but the free do that comes with it is very nice. Last night practice, everyone was jealous of me. I strongly recommend this set.

Great price and quality! January 22, 2013
Reviewer: Keita Yamamoto from Raleigh, NC  
I ordered this bogu the same day it was announced, and I received today. The craftsmanship is beautiful, and unless you look at it very close, it looks like a hand stitched bogu. I like the weight and the softness of all parts, but specially the Kote. It feels very soft, as if I had been using it for a long time. Can't beat this! I would strongly recommend this bogu at our dojo. Even in Japan you can not find this quality at this price. Can't wait to practice with it. Arigatougozaimashita!

Thank you! January 21, 2013
Reviewer: Perter Lee from NY  
I received the Bogu last Friday, and used the Bogu during the weekend. It is definitely a great Bogu. This is the 3rd Bogu I got from E-BOGU, and the quality is superb. The weight of the Bogu is unbelievably light especially the Kote.
