Tozando’s premium Bogu, the patented Tornado-stitch® model is one of the most protective Men set on the global market.
Following on from the development of the Tornado-stitch® Kote, the evolution of the Shudo Tornado-stitch® Men was an inevitable next step in the quest for the ultimate protection.
Born of a demand to develop Bogu which eliminated pain, especially for high school practitioners, the Tornado-stitch® Men is the result of an exhaustive testing and product development process which puts cheaper copies to shame in the performance stakes.
The heavily padded and stiffened Tornado-stitch® Men Buton features an innovative padding and stitch configuration which significantly outperformed more traditional Bogu styles during testing, offering both improved shock absorption and impact resistance.
The Shudo Tornando-Stitch® Men includes a detachable IBB safety guard, a flexible shield which offers extra protection against Tsuki. Orizashi Futon layers facilitate fast drying and Toray’s ultra-comfortable Sillead fabric Uchiwa ensure ulitmate comfort.
Here Tozando’s long experience, Kendo expertise and innovative approach have resulted in the creation of a truly outstanding Men.
Key Features Include:
Patented Tornado-stitch® Futon – The original and the best, developed in Japan with high ranking Sensei, the thick primary pad is highly protective and has been seen to significantly reduce the pain associated with Shinai impact.
Hybrid Orizashi Construction – Fast drying, lightweight, breathable and great looking, the classic rice grain stitch fabric is integrated with the dense smooth heavy cotton fabrics in perfect harmony. Very popular in Japan for high frequency practice where quick drying between classes is essential.
IBB Safety Guard – Offering hugely increased protection from Tsuki attacks, the removable safety guard is designed to move independently of the Men so that it is always offering protection to the throat, regardless of the angle of the Tsukidare.
