Produced by trusted craftsmen

This kote made in 眞仁工場 (Shinjin facory) in Philippines. Eiko Budogu started manage this factory a few years ago. This factory has good reputation for quality.

Made by experienced Filipino craftsmen with great skills. A Korean person who established Shinjin factory learned how to make bogu in Japan. So the quality is same good as Japanese bogu.

Our thoughts

Thank you for using BUSHIZO all the time. My name is Go Ueshima from BUSHIZO. I do Kendo over 25 years, Kendo is part of my life. As you know, we do selling kendo equipment as reseller. But we want to make by own kendo equipment as a makers. “ARM" is first step for us.

If we make new things, I would like to challenge the planning of products that I have never seen before in the kendo world.

Nowadays, inexpensive and poor durability kendo equipment are increased, and many voices of doubt are raised in terms of safety.

We want to make protective, easy to use kote with skillful craftsman. If we don't make this kind of kote, maybe skillful craftsman are decreased slowly.

we hope you enjoy kendo with good products.
