Manufactured by Japan's only workshop capable of producing 100% MADE IN JAPAN Kendogu, we present the MUGEN series’ entry level model – TAKUMA. TAKUMA is reinforced using genuine Japanese ‘Aizome’ dyed Orizashi cotton, #8,800 grade cotton, and top-grade synthetic deerskin (shin leather), and features an extremely comfortable, and protective 10mm Nagazashi Futon.
Kote : 450g
Following diligent research, and after consulting Kendoka of all levels – from all over the world - our specialist product design 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.
Utilizing our original 'Infinity Grip' technology, TAKUMA presents the culmination of generations of expertise in crafting premium Kendo equipment. 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.

absolutely comfortable wearing hence good protecting though lightweight. As it fixed my contact to the shinai, I got another chance to improve my keiko. I'm thankful for customizing and for very efficient service.

I have ordered these kote as spare for my standard kote and used them in the last keiko. I am jodan player and I have to say the fit super good and give good freedom for katate techniques. The protection of the futon is very good, especially when you recieve katate kote from you jodan mate or sensei at full speed :-)
