The bogu that Kim-sensei crafted for me was incredibly well made with meticulous attention to detail being present. The bogu fits perfectly, and Kim-sensei personally worked with me to ensure that the dimensions were correct. When shipped to me, the bogu was packaged safely and securely. The quality of the materials and the handiwork are seen through the seamless stitching. The kote is made in a way that helps me hold the shinai properly and maintain correct kamae and technique. This bogu will surely last me a long time, and the other sets of bogu you can get at this price point won't match the quality of Kim-sensei's work.
