Description Technical Specs. How to measure

Named after fierce female samurai like Tomoe Gozen this bogu is entirely white with a red do-dai. Whilst often associated with female kendoka in Japan anyone can wear white bogu. This set is stitched with 5mm intervals so as to be practical in everyday keiko, but remain durable to abrasion. This set is aimed at those who want a completely striking look from their bogu, but still receive great protection in regular training. As white bogu are so rare, not many are made – therefore your choices are often limited if you want to get one. With this in mind we have chosen a good balance of features so this set is not only beautiful, but practical and lasting. It is finished with synthetic leather so is very durable and comfortable.

The Gozen is a great reminder of the equality of kendo and that training is for everyone no matter who they are. This bogu is for kendoka who want to stand out and go their own way. Yet it still it offers the same fantastic protection and comfort as our other sets. With free international shipping you can get it across the world.

All of our bogu sets come with the himo included alongside a tenugui. We make sure each set is checked over and adjusted by our Japanese craftsmen and usually ship within 3 days of getting your order. Please bear in mind that if you require a non standard size it will likely have an additional cost and take longer to prepare.

5 of 5 Love it, but... September 27, 2016
Reviewer: Carla Andrea Esnaola Méndez from Iquique, Tarapacá Chile  
I have been using this bogu for a couple of months now. I'm extremely satisfied with it, works and looks great, but... I'm the only one using white, that kinda painted a target in my back hahaha. Anyway, everybody thinks it is beautiful, and I agree. Fine piece of equipment, would get another, waiting for it to come with a green or violet do :D

Thanks for the excelent product.
