Although, it can rightly be said that each aspect of the Kendo Bogu have a direct effect on the comfort and performance of all Kendoka, it is the Kote in particular that play the biggest role in how we manipulate the Shinai, and excecute techniques.
It is a common misunderstanding that, when purchasing a pair of Kote, a correct fit ensures the pair to be both comfortable, and easy to use. However, this is actually not the case.
Of course – a perfect fit is essential. However, it is wrong to say that a good fit equals ease of use. It is indeed possible that a perfectly fitting Kote is difficult to use due to an inefficient design. Therefore, it is imperative that not only do we have a pair of Kote that are made to our exact measurements, but are also made to an optimum design.
Utilizing our original 'Infinity Grip' technology, MUGEN presents the culmination of generations of expertise in crafting premium Kendo equipment. The original MUGEN Kote are made, not only to your EXACT sizes and specifications, but they are made to – what we believe – to be the optimum design, allowing an unparalleled level of comfort, and ease of use.
Made from the best quality materials, by the world’s leading craftsmen, with MUGEN you can be confident in not only the comfort offered by these Kote, but also in their exquisite quality.
Durable and protective, flexible and comfortable – MUGEN original Kote are the obvious choice.
Reinforced with genuine Shoaizome dyed Japanese deerskin, these Kote are not only extremely comfortable flexible, they are exceptionally beautiful and elegant in design. The Futon is stitched with 1.5 Bu (approximately 4.5mm) width machine stitching, which is said, by many of the world's top craftsmen, to be the ideal balance between protection and durability.
