Kyoto-Pro Guardian Kote Specifications
Extra-Protective Kote-Buton – Kote pads are constructed with dual protective layers of selected natural felts of differential density in combination to balance weight, density and impact management. Right hand Kote-Buton feature additional layers of padding material and shielding, offering added protection in this more exposed and more commonly impacted target.
Shock Absorbent Pitch Stitch – 4mm horizontal bands of stitching are applied with 4mm long stitches through the Kote-Buton, reducing compression of the Kote padding and increasing the absorption of shock at the point of impact. Reducing the distance between lines of stitching increases durability of the Futon and offers additional impact resistance.
Clarino Neo Leather Tenouchi-Gawa – the toughest of the Kote palm material options but the least elastic, Clarino is a type of man-made leather which is fast drying and highly resistant to wear and tear.
Man-Made Atama Fill – synthetic wool forms the stuffing material within the Atama (hand protection). Denser and less malleable than natural materials, this fill material maintains its volume and shape and is not easily compressed over time.
