Kendo Training

Are you interested in Kendo? It is becoming quite popular these days that's for sure. If you are, then you will need Kendo equipment and here at we can help with that. Here’s good news for all newbies in Kendo! You can take advantage of the starter kit that includes a sword at a very low price including shipping. If you want to cut down the costs of buying the necessary equipment, you can be happy with this package.

The very first thing that you have to get is the "bogu" or the set of protective armor. Make sure that you pick a bogu that is designed to withstand demanding conditions, especially during training. Safety is another consideration, so get one that is crafted artistically and provides safety to the user. Maximum protection is vital but you need to ensure that the bogu will allow unrestricted movements. Newbies are often confused when it comes to fitting and function of the bogu. Never sacrifice quality to get a cheaper price. There are quality ones out there that are reasonably priced. Shop around and you’ll find the best deals.

Check the stitching of the bogu. Experts say that the quality can be seen from the stitching. Pick a bogu with closer stitching and the trim should be made from a deer leather because this material is not likely to crack. For the ‘Do’ or the torso protector (breastplate), you should get fiberglass because it is lighter and easily adjusts to the impacts received. This is also less expensive as in comparison to bamboo. For your ‘kote’ or the hand and forearm protectors (gauntlets), you should opt for a deer leather because it wears better although it’s a bit expensive.

Of course we also are selling this one unique Bugo set. A machined stitched high quality 4mm/2mm diagonally stitched Bogu comes with a 3+ 1 shinai bag which means that you will have three shinai and a bokken or bokuto inside. This set as well includes a tenugui or a head towel covering and all required himos or strings.

These are some of the things that you will have to look into when shopping for the right equipment. The katana is also a great consideration. For new students, bokken swords are usually advised to avoid accidental cuts. The bokken is a wooden sword and is great for practice and drills. When you have gained more experience, you can now buy a katana or other samurai swords that you may need. Before buying a real samurai sword, make sure that you have already enhanced your strength and skills. It pays to own a quality and beautiful samurai sword.

Investing on quality equipment for Kendo is a wise decision because you will be using them for many months or even years! If you are starting Kendo and are looking for training gear, check us out.
