Following diligent research, and after consulting Kendoka of all levels – from all over the world - our specialist product design team designed TAKUMA to be an affordable, yet comfortable and protective Bogu set, aimed not only at new Kendoka, but also at those on a limited budget, looking for a second set – particularly for experienced practitioners who often act a Motodachi. The wide 10mm Nagazashi stitching provides a thick, well cushioned Futon that is also extremely flexible.

The TAKUMA Men is completely made to order to your exact sizes, using high quality Shoai-zome cotton, and top-grade synthetic deerskin for the reinforcements. The design is simplistic overall, with traditional 'Bouzashi' straight stitching on the Mendare. The MUGEN Original Mengane is an originally designed Mengane, featuring an improved balance, giving improved lateral vision, and has reinforced Titanium bars in the strike zone. This gives the optimum balance of being lightweight, and also extremely strong. Further, the Mengane is coated with an original high-gloss coating, which strengthens the surface, preventing chips, cracks and dents. Finally the MUGEN Original Mengane is finished with matte grey on the inside, giving a cool and discreet outlook.

The TAKUMA 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. The cushioning provided by the 10mm stitching ensures that you get maximum protection, whilst retaining flexibility.

One area of TAKUMA where the extreme comfort offered by the flexible 10mm Nagazashi stitching becomes most appreciated is the Tare. Made using the same high grade Japanese Shoaizome cotton and synthetic deerskin reinforcements, the classic, understated design results in a Tare that utility and function above decoration.
