The JISSENGATA Tournament Model is fully based off our flagship model from our famous 'ALL JAPAN PITCH®' range of Bogu - NEW and improved for 2017! The JISSENGATA Tournament Model is armour of choice for several members of the Japanese national team and police 'Tokuren' members across the country.
This deluxe Orizashi armour utilizes only the highest quality lightweight and quick drying Japanese fabric - redefining the standards of Jissengata tournament style Bogu, and it for this reason that the distinctive 'All Japan Pitch®' tags have come to be known as 'The gold mark of victory'. This amazing Bogu set has been exclusively developed to cater for those who are seeking to take GOLD! The choice of Japan's elite players - including the Japanese National Team (pictured) - the JISSENGATA Tournament Model has been specifically designed to make YOU a champion.
The Men features our original All Japan 'Pearl' Mengane, which has improved balance, gives improved lateral vision, and has reinforced Titanium bars in the strike zone. Further, the Mengane is coated with an original high-gloss coating, which strengthens the surface, preventing chips, cracks and dents! Finally, the Mengane is finished with matte grey on the inside, giving a cool and discreet outlook.
The hand-stitched Uchiwa is made using the same genuine Momen found in top-quality Tezashi Bogu sets, improving the overall fit and comfort. Further, it has been deepened by 1cm to give a closer fitting feel to the face - giving the Men a feeling of becoming 'part' of the wearer.
The JISSENGATA Tournament Kote also feature our special 'Infinity Grip' wrist joint, which allows you to maneuver and manipulate the Shinai with ease, as well as the dinstinctive Yoroi-gata Kazari on the fist, gallowing for improved hand movement!
As with any physical activity the comfort of your equipment has a direct effect on your performance, and it is with this in mind that our craftsmen - themselves high-level practitioners of Kendo - have developed this Bogu. On average JISSENGATA Tournament Model weighs approximately 2,200g* (minus the Do), whereas more traditional Bogu sets can weigh as much as 3,500g* (again, minus the Do). This difference of 1,300g naturally presents a noticeable advantage. That's more than a 35% reduction in weight! Naturally, this also provides an additional benefit to those who frequently travel!
Featuring all the design elements you would expect from a modern Jissengata Bogu set, such as shortened Mendare, super-flexible Kote and a diagonal cut on the Tare and Menfuton. The JISSENGATA Tournament model has a simplistic, yet dignified design, which gives you the chance to present your appearance in the same way as the world's top-level players. As with the rest of the new All Japan Pitch® range, the entire Bogu set features Tetsukon colored accent threads, giving the entire Bogu set a subtle yet distinctive and luxurious appearance.
Finally, utilizing the latest in Bogu technology, the Mune has been made with a special type of Kurozan, exclusively developed by our craftsmen for the All Japan Pitch® series of Bogu - featuring the same durability as regular Kurozan, while giving the Do a beautiful and lustrous appearance!
Even better, the JISSENGATA Tournament Model offers this whilst retaining durability and protection! Thanks to the use of 'All Japan Pitch-zashi', the Futon provides protection, as well as flexibility, whilst allowing the Bogu to be stitched with a tighter Sashi-haba (stitch width), providing extra durability. This style has been imitated by several of our rivals, but none have managed to match the comfort and quality offered by the real deal.

This bogu set is amazing.. shipping and customer service was top notch. I purchase many bogu sets before but this was my first purchase from this company and I have to say it has to be the best purchase I made so far. The bogu is soooo light and feels amazing. Will definitely be purchasing from them again! Thank you Jean for helping me out!
