These are the Kote for SAKURA, one of the most popular sets from our famous 'ALL JAPAN PITCH' range of Bogu.
Fully reinforced with All Japan 'Shin-Leather', and stitched using our pioneering 'All Japan Pitch-zashi', the SAKURA Kote are subtly decorated with black 'Ko-zakura' patterned embossed leather in various places. These small decorations give the Kote a small touch of individuality, without being overly flamboyant.
The All Japan Pitch SAKURA Kote feature our original 'Infinity Grip' wrist joint, which allows you to maneuver and manipulate the Shinai with ease!
The Sakura (Japanese cherry blossom) provides a distinct image of Japan, and along with the dragonfly, was thought of as an important symbol by warriors of centuries ago. A well known phrase says - "As flowers are Sakura, people are warriors", or in other words, the warrior is thought of as the cherry blossom of the human world, owing to their short, but important lives.
'All Japan Pitch-zashi' leaves the Futon thicker, providing more protection, as well as flexibility, whilst allowing the Bogu to be stitched with a tighter Sashi-haba (stitch width), providing extra durability.
Larger or irregular sizes may require additional cost and/or production time.

I have just received my Sakura Kote, and the fit is just perfect. These are very well made, the design touches are delicately done and just look stunning. I order these from the UK on Tuesday Evening and they have arrived with me on Friday... now that's incredible service.

As soon as arrived they fitted perfectly, also with imo tied the right measures at the futon parts! Silk touch and large mobility at the wrists, a little thick on the left but I think it will get softer with very few Keiko! A very good and practical item!

These kote are a perfect combination of practical yet beautiful armor. They were comfortable from the start and fit my hand perfectly. The flexibility in the wrists makes my movement in the strikes easy.
I'm really pleased with my choice of kote and love the small flowers and other details.
