Our most protective machine-stitched bogu - utilising our patented tornado-stitch futon. Alternating bands of 12mm and 3mm stitching allow large amounts of core material to absorb any strike thrown at you. Reinforced with aizome orizashi cotton that not only provides a dignified look but keeps the armour light and breathable. Prioritising protection above all, this armour is great for people acting as motodachi during keiko, or training alongside partners that strike particularly hard. Thanks to the experience of our craftsmen and design, the Shudo does not suffer from a lack of mobility.
Shudo - High-protection Tornado Stitch Kote have a tendency to run slightly small. For a more comfortable fit, we suggest ordering on size larger than the size chart shows.
