15% OFF All Kendo Equipment!
The beginning of April is the beginning of the Sakura season, during which most Japanese will take some slow time to enjoy Hanami (watching the cherry blossom), a beautiful season in Japan. With a good weather, it is the perfect time of year for practice.
April is also the beginning of the school year in Japan. Young Japanese are enjoying their last days off as they prepare to get back to school for early April. After 2 to 3 weeks off, many dojos are starting their regular training again, including the Narishoken Kendo Club near our office where 4 of our staff members practice.
With this in mind, we thought that it was time to do a discount on our Kendo/Iaido Dogi and Hakama, 15%. This discount should also please our fellow Kobudo practitioners who wear Kendo and Iaido gears for practice.
This current discount ends on April 25th, 10 am JPT.
In March, we've added our latest product release, the JOV (white) and JNV (blue) Judogi as well as the JOVB black belt. Those 3 products are the very best of the IJF approved Judo product line-up.
After years of experience with cotton/polyester fabrics that can meet the new standards of the IJF, the KuSakura R&D department came out with an even more resistant and even slightly heavier fabric, heavier than the famous masterpiece JOF. It allowed for the development of those two new models. As required by the IJF, it weighs is slightly over 750 g/m², while maintaining a tensile strength greater than 2200 Newtons.
It is called Taisho, which is also the name of the main competitor of a team in a Judo tournament. The greatest hope of the team, the one who holds the keys to victory in his hands. Because this Judogi is designed for international competitions, it can be used in all competitions at any level. Note that the polyester fiber allows quick drying and compact folding, which is also particularly useful for practitioners traveling a lot.
Enjoy the discounts, and see you soon on KuSakuraShop.com!
