Description Technical Specs. How to measure

When you are appearing at a competition or going for an exam you need to look your best. The Yoroi Tonbo uses fine 3mm fit-stitching that is not only very neat and elegant, but also very durable – this bogu will last for a long time and still remain striking to look at. The fit-stitch method ensures that the set remains comfortable and protective. The mendare also benefit from diagonal stitching increasing comfort and reducing interference with your shoulders. The set also comes with a light-weight yamato do-dai perfect for shiai. Alongside the IBB D-Pro mengane you can be sure that you are well balanced and can move quickly in a competition environment.

Finally the the whole set is finished with indigo dyed synthetic leather adorned with golden tonbo inden decorations. The Tombo dragonfly is a herald of victory in Japan, it always flies forwards and never retreats.

This set is a great investment as a bogu for competition and examinations. If you are looking for something to do regular keiko with you would be better off looking for something with wider stitching as repeated motodachi work can be quite painful with 3mm stitching. The set includes a tenugui and all of its himo as well as being delivered internationally free of charge.

Each Bogu Set is checked and adjusted by the Japanese craftsmen in our workshops. Usually they ship directly from Japan within 7 days of us receiving your order. Please note, larger or smaller than standard sizes may incur additional costs and require additional production time. Furthermore, please be aware that choosing a different coloured Do-dai than 'Basic Black' will increase production time by around 10-12 weeks.

4 of 5 Great Bogu February 2, 2017
Reviewer: Christophe from Villeurbanne, Rhone France  
I was so excited to receive my first bogu.
And I am not disappointed with the golden dragonflies, it is a really beautiful and comfortable set. The men are perfectly adjusted.
Thanks tozando group and Yu Bo-san for these tips
Only defect undoubtedly due to transport the red varnish of the menbuchi is a little flaky damage.
