SHORT OVERALL REVIEW ON DO

Hokuryu (Do) offers better protection and function. Its hard and structurally strong domune slightly thin and sozashi design offers good protection. The domune is also medium sized, giving it user room and mobility to move. The use of 50 pieces Yamato Do enhances its protective ability. A great do for an experience kendoka looking for a new primary bogu or secondary bogu. Suitable for both shiai, tournament and training.

 

However, its price tag might be a bit expensive for beginners and its sozashi design makes it unsuitable for Jodan player.
