    New Armour

    Last Tuesday I spent the morning at Nine Circles and obtained a bogu set 2mm. Martin looked after me and I'm very pleased with my new armour.

    It was like a magic trick when I took all my armour out of the bag and looked and thought that won't go back in that small bag!!

    I haven't had to replace that yet. Mine is a 3mm and I've had it for about 8 years, so it is nicely broken in. I do plan to send my old kote in for a re-palm though.

    I can now do it, complete with the addition of Kendogi and Hakama!
    You could also try something like this;

    It should even be possible to fit an extra bogu in there

    I don't know about breaking my 2mm in as I've never worn bogu before, so don't know the difference. Last night was my first time wearing a men!!

    Bogu bags are like the Tardis -- they are a lot bigger inside than they look from the outside.

    Do you think the 2mm too stiff? I used to have 2mm Men and couldn't break it in, sold it later.

    Did my first session in full armour last night. I had trouble working out how far away the walls of the dojo where behind me. Really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next session!

    Kenpro, you can get them through either Chiba Budogu or Miyako Kendogu.

    I did look at getting the bag on wheels that Nine Circles sell.

    The nine circles bags are a bit of a challenge.

    One of the guys showed me how he packs his pack and he did remove his keikogi and hakama
