What is Men Pad?



The Mendare is 3cm shorter than usual Bogu for easy movements and Furikaburi, when bringing the arms above your head, for a strike. The Mendare has a Naname stitching, which also makes the movement easier. This type of Men is very popular among strong Kendo players in Japan. Also, the Men in the olden days used to be made this way.

The back side of the Men has a design of Sakura on the Navy blue finish, which gives an discrete accent to the Bogu.

The Men has our signature angled cut, giving the Men an outstanding look, when worn.

Excellent quality, performance, and value September 25, 2013
Reviewer: Sierra from Fort Lauderdale, FL United States  
This is an *excellent* quality men, tightly and uniformly stitched and well put together.  It is breaking in beautifully and fits me extremely well.  I'm very, very pleased with the fit and build quality.  The performance is fantastic - it is extremely light - and the impact attenuation is adequate.  The short mendare (wings) were an interesting... feature.  Turns out, it's an excellent one.  It permits a high degree of freedom of movement and provides more than adequate coverage of the collarbones and shoulder.  Plus, they look great, keep a nice curve (with proper break in), and have a very classic look.  For the money this is an amazing value, I'm quite impressed.

Great Men! July 2, 2012
Reviewer: Neil Adelman from Cleveland, OH United States  
I am very pleased with the quality of this men. The shorter Mendare is a very cool feature that allows great freedom of movement without sacrificing protection. Compared with the men I replaced, the light weight of this product is very liberating. I compared this men with much more expensive ones used by higher ranking members of our dojo and we could not find much difference between them. I am very pleased with this product and highly recommend it!

Short Mendare September 30, 2011
Reviewer: Emily Hook from Longmont, CO United States  
I just received the the Jissen Keiryo Men from E-Bogu and it certainly does what it needs to do. Although I was a little surprised by just how short the mendare actually are, as they seem to be several inches shorter rather than several centimeters short of a standard length. I measured properly and the men seems to fit fine otherwise after a little breaking in but the mendare only cover my collar bones rather than my entire shoulders. All things in balance (and several unintended whacks to the shoulders later) though, we determined through practice that the short mendare still cover what they need to cover and do their job just fine. Planning on sending an email with a photo to see whether or not something went wrong in the processing.
