Includes Free Deluxe Sports Bag, all Himo, all Chigawa and a Tenugui so that you are ready to practice when your bogu arrives!
Guaranteed quality with hand-stitched bogu. Very attractive to look at because of the square pattern that hand-stitching creates whilst also being highly protective. The 3D effect created by the stitching allows for greater shock absorbing and because it's more closely made to your size you receive better protection and comfort.
Naname (diagonal) Stitching
Easily get that great natural curvature of the men-dare with naname-zashi. The diagonal stitch helps the material naturally bend along the stitch line rather than against it allowing the men to fit comfortably, protect the neck and shoulders and form the correct shape.
Deer Wool Kobushi Padding
High quality padding in the kobushi (fist) of the kote makes a really big difference. Without tough leather to reduce the power of hits to the fist the padding must perform this role and still allow flexibility and movement of the hand.
This is why we choose deer wool padding to allow for crisp techniques without fear of bruised knuckles!
A top quality do can be very expensive but now we can offer similar protection, lower weight, easier to look after and a much better price with Yamato doudai.
Made from a tough composite material the Yamato dou varies from basic dou in that the composite is formed into slat shapes to help the dou mimic the power absorbing quality of bamboo.
