While lightweight Jissengata Bogu spiked in popularity throughout the years, many customers also seek a Bogu set that would feature the same top quality, and comfort offered by these competition sets, but would also be suitable for intensive regular practice or promotional exams. In answer to this, we have decided to offer the 'ultimate all-purpose' Bogu set. The SAPPHIRE Bogu set by California Budogu is a set that is not only affordable, lightweight, and comfortable, but also features added durability and a luxurious finish by using only the highest quality materials.

Featuring a simple yet timeless 8mm Gunomezashi design, these Kote feature top quality Aizome deerskin reinforcing the entire Futon. The Konkawa version provides the best durability, helping the Bogu last throughout years of intense practice, as well as a luxurious look ideal to exhibit at promotion exams and special events.

Utilizing the best of both worlds, the Kote palms feature a unique half-smoked deerskin, giving these Kote the durability of smoked but comfort and flexibility of bleached deerskin. The Kote are also infused with antibacterial TASTEX-MGU for extra cleanliness. The SAPPHIRE by California Budogu is suitable for ALL Kendoka looking for a high end yet affordable Bogu set – including beginners, competitors, and high ranking Sensei.
