  • Mon on do

    I've seen some kendoka wearing little stickers on their do that represent the mon (family crests) of samurai families or nice drawings. Somebody knows where I could find some of those stickers?

    I believe e-bogu sell these. I dont know what they are like though, because I've never bought a set.

      and the moral of the story is... "never trust your memory, go and check your sources before posting on sites and making an @rse of yourself"

      I am sure I've seen them around, and I could have sworn that e-bogu had them, but I've just checked and cannae find them anywhere... sorry.

          They're called kamon. If you get a print catalog from Koei or some other source they usually have a selection. The cheapest ones are just stickers for your doh, but you can spend a lot of money and have it built into the finish with foil or paint.

                Bear in mind that you can't wear just any old kamon because you think it looks nice. If your family is Japanese, of course you can wear that one. If your sensei is Japanese, maybe he will give you permission to wear his but that is usually granted later in your kendo career. If neither of those conditions apply, just leave your doh plain.

                    I was more thinking about the crest of great clans, like the oda or the Takeda. Just so that I could recognize my do more easily in the line.

                      Kamon

                      Hi!

                      Just ask your dojo member Philippe the "Koei" catalogue. You can order them from Eurobogu...

                      See you in december!
