Gudo - 6mm Nanamezashi Kote have a tendency to run slightly small. For a more comfortable fit, we suggest ordering on size larger than the size chart shows. 

The Gudo - 6mm Nanamezashi Kote have a tendancy to run a bit small. We would suggest ordering one size above what the size chart shows for the best experience. 

The Gudo features our signature oji wrist-cut and specialized himo-lacing, but refined with naname-zashi stitching across the futon improving the level of protection.

Like our tornado-stitch the naname-zashi orientates itself perpendicular to most strikes that hit the kote. This allows the futon to absorb the impact far more efficiently. The futon itself is stitched to 6mm in the naga-zashi style meaning it is nice and padded, but remains durable. Together with the diagonal orientation the Gudo provides excellent protection without having to add any thickness or excess material - this keeps the kote light and nimble. This is perfect for Kendoka who don't want to compromise on speed, but still want excellent protection and comfort.

Mixed feeling

Bought this on sale. and was keen to have this as my backup kote. Followed instruction that this ran abit smaller than usual, so I bought a X (My usual is L), but it felt abit tight still but not bad. But the thumb part felt way too tight, felt as though the thumb section is shorter than normal.
Also notice my kote himo is alot thinner than other kote I have.


Excellent products and very good seller. Fast communication and fantastic support. Will order again

Thank you so much

Nice Kote, questionable tenouchi stiching

I have bought 2 pairs of Gudou Kote, which look and feel fantastic!
But after few monthes practicing with them, on the base of the thumb of both of the left Kote, the stiching broke up.
This makes the Kote feel loose, too bad, because besides of that I loved the Gudou Kote...

really too small indeed

nice Kote, but one size larger is still too small for me

Nice kote, but size up

Well made kote, but they run smaller than described. Recommend sizing up one size if you can.
