Description How to measure
The Tora Kote is a set designed specifically with training in mind, not just protection. Most kote require extensive breaking in to fit the shape of your hands when they hold a shinai. The Tora however is already shaped to provide you with the perfect grip to hold your shinai comfortably and, most importantly, correctly.

It achieves this with its five innovative braids that cross the head of the kote. Each braid curves specific parts of the grip so that it gently guides your fingers around the tsuka - tighter towards the bottom and looser towards your index finger. This means that you are uninhibited from the very beginning. These kote are fantatic for practitioners who want to improve their cutting.

On top of its special design the Tora features a 6mm futon - this width means the futon is well padded and can absorb hard strikes comfortably for the wearer whilst remaining flexible and comfortable to wear, as the right kote receives the most frequent strikes its futon has been increased by 20% to offer additional protection. The kote is finsihed with orizashi cotton reinforcements adding extra protection, but keeping the pair light and breathable.

This kote is recommended to any kendoka who want a protective kote that also supports your everyday training - especially if you are having trouble with tenouchi or want to really emphasise the sharpness of your strikes. This kote, like all of our products, qualifies for international free shipping.
