Three things you want to know when buying the first Bogu for your child

Recently I heard that there is quite a lot of nursery and kindergarten children that starts doing Kendo in Japan. Of course, there is also many elementary school students who does Kendo and are about to start wearing their first Bogu for Keiko. Naturally, this means that there are also many parents who are thinking about buying the first Bogu for their children. If the parents are doing Kendo, they will of course be very knowledgeable about Bogu and Shinai, but if the parents are not doing Kendo, it becomes a problem, as you will have no idea what to look at and what to buy for your child.

I think that even Bogu that are meant for small children is not something cheap. Especially during the new school term when you have to prepare a lot of other things, and thus the expenses tend to go out of control. So for the first Bogu, many parents tend to choose the Bogu depending on its price. Of course, buying something that is cheap, is not necessarily bad. But when buying the Bogu online were the price tends to be the most important factor, and where you can’t confirm the actual thing, you might run into trouble.

At Tozando we have full control of the production line all the way starting from the factory, to the point of selling and shipping the product to the customer.
