SHINOBU uses a special type of hybrid-stitching, which boosts durability, and also creates a distinctive cushion effect across the entire set. This works with three lines of 3mm stitching, spaced in 6mm gaps - meaning you get the durability of a tighter stiched set, but the comfort and protection of wider stitching.
In a similar way to the KendoStar Super-Protective VANGUARD PRIME Bogu set, this cushioning ensures that you are well protected, whilst also retaining flexibility and comfort. In addition, the hybrid-stitch pattern helps you to shape the Futon into a desirable position, meaning that you can also look your best whilst practicing.
A 50pc type Do is included, with your choice of Mune Kazari.
The SHINOBU Tare features unique diagonal stitching at the corners of the Mae-Obi, allowing it to form-fit to the body easily, and increasing comfort
All things considered, SHINOBU is an excellent choice for all levels of Kendoka. For beginners, it is a good all-round choice, that will last for many years of training, whilst providing excellent protection. For instructors, who are often receiving repeated strikes, the comfort and protection will be a natural benefit. For competitors, SHINOBU is lightweight and comfortable, and makes an excellent choice for heavy duty competition focussed practice, such as Uchikomi-geiko, and Kakari-geiko.
