Sale SOLD OUT

Manufactured by Nihon Kendogu Seisakusho or NKS - one of Japan's only workshops capable of producing 100% MADE IN JAPAN Kendogu - we present the NKS' best selling entry level model – SHIN-MUGEN. SHIN-MUGEN is reinforced using genuine Japanese ‘Aizome’ dyed Orizashi cotton, #8,800 grade cotton, and top-grade synthetic leather, and features an extremely comfortable, and protective 10mm 6mm pitch stitched Futon.

NKS' product design team designed SHIN-MUGEN to be an affordable, yet comfortable and protective Bogu set, aimed not only at new Kendoka, but also at those on a limited budget, looking for a second set – particularly for experienced practitioners who often act a Motodachi. The wide 10mm long-pitch creates a thick, well cushioned Futon that is also extremely flexible.

MEN

The SHIN-MUGEN Men is completely made to order to your exact sizes, using high quality Shoai-zome cotton, and top-grade synthetic deerskin for the reinforcements. The design is simplistic overall, with traditional 'Bouzashi' straight stitching on the Mendare. The MUGEN Original Mengane is an originally designed Mengane, featuring an improved balance, giving improved lateral vision, and has reinforced Titanium bars in the strike zone. This gives the optimum balance of being lightweight, and also extremely strong. Further, the Mengane is coated with an original high-gloss coating, which strengthens the surface, preventing chips, cracks and dents. Finally the MUGEN Original Mengane is finished with matte grey on the inside, giving a cool and discreet outlook.  

KOTE

SHIN-MUGEN presents the culmination of generations of expertise in crafting premium Kendo equipment. The SHIN-MUGEN Kote are made, not only to your EXACT sizes and specifications, but they are made to – what we believe – to be the optimum design, allowing an unparalleled level of comfort, and ease of use. The cushioning provided by the 10mm stitching ensures that you get maximum protection, whilst retaining flexibility.

TARE

 

One area of SHIN-MUGEN where the extreme comfort offered by the flexible 10mm Nagazashi stitching becomes most appreciated is the Tare. Made using the same high grade Japanese Shoaizome cotton and synthetic deerskin reinforcements, the classic, understated design results in a Tare that utility and function above decoration.
