A GOOD CHOICE FOR -
- All Levels
- Those looking for an all purpose Bogu set, with a distinctive design
- Fantastic high quality, first Bogu set!
GAIRYU is a great all purpose Kendo Bogu, that is suitable for all levels. Featuring a design based around the iconic 'Yoroi' (Samurai armor), and specifically the GAIRYU (Samurai Helmet) - from which the Bogu takes its name. All stitching on GAIRYU is done using the 'Pitch-Zashi' style - which is a method popular in Japan, featuring longer than usual stitches, which allow for more flexibility, and better cushioning. This makes HISHI extremely comfortable, whilst also being very protective. Top grade synthetic deerskin is used to reinforce the Futon of the Men and the Tare, making GAIRYU lightweight, flexible, and very durable. As a point of design, the Urakawa (reverse reinforcements), and other leather details feature a black 'Inden' (lacquered leather) completing a beautiful appearance.
The Men is stitched using diagonal 'Naname-zashi' to give additional comfort, and a light, but strong IBB Mengane (protective cage) for increased durability. Further, in-keeping with the theme of the set, the Futon design features a unique, 'Kabuto' style design. A matching 'Kabuto' pattern is used to decorate the Mune (chest guard), and a 50pc type toughened synthetic black Do-dai (body protector) comes as standard. The Kote feature a full synthetic leather design, which completely reinforces the fist section, and genuine smoked deerskin is used for the palms. A sturdy, and protective Tare is also included, featuring 6 decorative lines of Kazari (decorative rope stitching), and the 'Naname-zashi' (diagonal stitching) is repeated on the side panels, for improved shaping.
