About All Japan Pitch®

In recent years our exclusive ‘All Japan Pitch’ brand Bogu has become the fastest selling Bogu in all of Japan. The distinctive ‘All Japan Pitch’ label has become a common sight in Dojos and tournaments across the globe, and can regularly be spotted at prestigious events such as the All Japan and World Kendo Championships. Further, popularity has been further boosted thanks to several appearances on Japanese television – including the popular ‘Taiiku-Kai TV’ show, which pits various top-level players against Japanese television’s well known celebrities – who also happen to be Kendo practicioners.

What is All Japan Pitch?? :


The choice of the best players in the world, ‘All Japan Pitch’ Bogu is now the standard choice for Japanese police ‘Tokuren’ members, as well as top-level high-school or university teachers and their students. Further, you can also frequently see the distinctive label on the Bogu used by several All-Japan level ‘Jitsugyoudan’ (company teams) players, and several other famous Kendoists.

‘All Japan Pitch’ Bogu has already been imitated by several of our competitors, but the original outshines all imitations in every way. For this reason, the original ‘All Japan Pitch’ was the Bogu of choice for members of the Japanese National team from the 15th World Kendo Championships, Italy 2012…

So, what is so good about ‘All Japan Pitch’?

The original series of ‘All Japan Pitch’ brand Bogu popularised the revolutionary ‘Pitch-zashi’ type of stitching of the Bogu Futon. Basically, ‘Pitch-zashi’ is stitching that is applied to the Futon using a special technique where the ‘Sashi-ma’ (actual length of individual stitches) is longer than what is used in standard types of Bogu. There are several key advantages to this, as utilizing longer stitching makes the Futon much more flexible and comfortable, whilst at the same time leaving it physically thicker – providing more protection. In other words, it allows us to make the Bogu both more comfortable AND protective – without compromising durability. Many imitations struggle to achieve this effect, as the longer stitches can lead to a higher probability of the threads breaking – however, the original ‘All Japan Pitch’ series Bogu uses a specially developed thread to combat this problem, providing additional durability.

To explain further, the rows of stitching on a standard machine-stitched Bogu look something like this –
