Description Additional Information How to measure

The Hikari is a wonderful example of craftsmanship – a hand-stitched bogu in the jissengata style, perfect for shiai and examinations. As this bogu is hand-stitched it still offers excellent protection even though it is a lightweight model. The whole set is incredibly light and flexible with any unnecessary materials removed to maximize your performance. The mendare are also shorter than normal so as to reduce the stress on your arms and shoulders as much as possible.

The emphasis on lightweight features continue with the mengane and do. An IBB D-Pro which is light-weight and balanced so as not to strain your neck during training, yet retains two titanium bars to ensure complete protection. Whereas the 50pc yamato do keeps the whole set as light as possible.

This particular version of the Hikari uses 1.5bu stitching so is slightly more flexible and padded than the 1.2 version, but as it is hand stitched it remains very durable. This bogu is recommended as an investment for experienced practitioners looking for a very light-weight bogu that still affords the best protection and is a joy to wear. The set includes himo, a tenugui and international shipping for free.

Checked personally by one of our expert Japanese craftsmen this set usually ships from Japan within 3 days of us receiving your order. Please not that if the sizes you require are non-standard then the order may take additional time and costs to fulfill
