Alternative Views:

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 coudl 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.

5 of 5 Very good ckoice January 2, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from GLOUCESTER, MA United States  
This is my third set of bogu, and after using it for a month I am very satisfied.  The quality is good, the fit is excellent and the price is a bargain.  It is very light weight, so senseis  who spend a lot of time as motodachi may want heavier kote.

5 of 5 Great Bogu March 13, 2014
Reviewer: Zach from Austin, TX United States  
The Men feels great right away, very little break in needed.  The tare is also very soft and flexible.  The Kote are a little stiff at first but I'm sure they will break in fine.

5 of 5 Great Bogu! March 4, 2013
Reviewer: Mark Yamagata from San Francisco, CA  
I received the Bogu on Friday and used at practice yesterday. Great Bogu. The Men feels good from the beginning, and it did not hurt my head like my old ones that took a while to adjust to my head. The Kote was stiff at the bening of the practice, but after 2 hours, I can feel that it already started to adjust. My face turned blue after practice, but I understand that this is due to the Shoaizome dye, they use for the fabric of the Men. The Tare feel very thin, which makes it easy to move. I am very happy with this set.
