Tozando’s premium Bogu, the patented Tornado-stitch® model is probably the most protective Bogu set on the global market.
Following on from the development of the Tornado-stitch® Kote, the evolution of the Shudo Tornado-stitch® Tare 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® Tare 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 Tare Buton feature an innovative padding and stitch configuration which significantly outperformed more traditional Bogu styles during testing, offering both improved shock absorption and impact resistance.
Here Tozando’s long experience, Kendo expertise and innovative approach have resulted in the creation of a truly outstanding Bogu set.
