DESIGN SPEC SUMMARY
SHORT OVERALL REVIEW ON TARE
Kagayaki (Tare) offers superb protection and function. Thick and elastic Haraobi and the gunomezashi on the thick odare tarebuton protects the user from do missed blows. To reduce repairs and increase durability, the tare toji is similarly to Yamato-budogu. The 5-dan kazari is stitched in a way to create bumps identical to men to absorb shinai impact. Hence, it is great for practice, competition and grading. It is a great tare for beginner kendoka, advanced kendoka and also practical as a primary or secondary set.
However, the tare is slightly heavier and might not be suitable for competitive kendo player that prefer for lighter equipment.
