Kote

Hand made Kendo Kote for the perfect fit

As the piece of bōgu which undergoes the most motion, the fit and flexibility of your kote are of vital importance to your comfort and performance. Kote are also usually the item of bōgu which are subject to the most wear. Therefore, at Shogun Kendogu, we painstakingly hand make every pair of kote to order in our workshop in Japan, to ensure the quality of their construction. The result is a product with unmatched fit and flexibility.

While we are proud of the level of quality in all of our kendo equipment, kote are our specialty. Our Nara-based craftsmen are also experienced kendoka are happy to answer any questions you may have prior to and after your purchase, and many adjustments can be made depending on your needs.

Just like all of our kendo equipment, each pair of kote includes free international shipping, and a 3 year repair warranty.
