Recently we have been asked for a new reliable basic and protective Bogu set of good quality that would be affordable for most beginners. It is true that you can find many cheap Bogu on the market. It was sad indeed to see beginners start with low quality Bogu that would be worn quickly. Those Bogu sets also prevent beginners from learning proper basic moves. To learn the basis right, you need to feel comfortable in your Bogu!
So we took advantage of our experience to come up with a totally plain design that would be simple enough to meet low budgets, but with All Japan Budogu's well tested quality materials and most of our essential features.
Since we kept the design simple to make the Bogu affordable, functional features were our priority: mobility, durability, and of course good protection:
Thicker padding on the right Kote to protect from heavy strikes
Thicker padding on the top of the Men to absorb repeated hits
Naname-zashi (diagonal stitching) on the shoulder to ease upper body movements
Double number of stitching lines on the Men-Dare to make it rigid and allow it to keep its shape
Lightweight, quick-drying, and flexible Orizashi reinforcements
Enduring Clarino (high-grade synthetic leather) on the rims to protect exposed parts
Besides our long and field-tested expertise, you will also find all the usual standard 'All Japan' good-looking designs:
100% cotton “Momen” Futon with traditional Aizome dyeing
'All Japan Pitch-Zashi' to provide extra flexibility and cushioning
Dense yet flexible 'All Japan' special felt padding
Classical and popular “Onigumo” Do-Mune Kazari
So what we are offering is a price that can match most low budget Bogu sets available on the market, but with All Japan Budogu's good quality materials and long time know-how. We just kept it simple to make it affordable.
Although this quality Bogu set is a very good bargain for such a low price, we recommend practitioners who want to commit themselves deeper to the practice of Kendo have a look to our All Japan Pitch Brand.
* NB: Although we are perfectly able to craft almost any size, please note that we might have to ask you for extra fees and extra crafting time if your measurements are out of the Japanese standards, since it will require extra material, special designs and extra work for our craftsmen.

I received my bogu about two weeks ago and am glad that I chose to order it. The men fits really well. The do is a bit wider than necessary and if the kote had been just a tiny bit smaller, they would not have fitted anymore, but all in all, everything fits. During trainings, the bogu provided good protection without restricting my movements.
