Do you use a kendo bogu created by Japanese craftsman?
Budogu Zen is established with the motivation to spread Japanese tradition to North America.
The history of kendo and the history of kendo bogu is related to each other. Since the Edo Period, kendo bogu has supported the development of kendo in modern days. Now, kendo is recognized not only within Japan but internationally.
There are only three kendo bogu factories in Japan. Additionally, there are dozens of craftsmans who produce bogu individually. The production of kendo bogu in Japan is not high. However, you can feel the history of both kendo and kendo bogu from the commitment in selecting good materials and the dedication to make a comfortable bogu.
What kind of Kendo Bogu is necessary for Kendoka?
Looking flashy? Affordable price? 
 We've been practicing kendo for a long period of time. However, we didn't have many opportunities to know the quality of kendo bogu made in Japan. It is not the appearance, but you can feel the difference by actually holding it in your hands. You can no longer use a different kendo bogu. This is something that you can not express it in words. This is us, Budogu Zen.
