This Kusazuri is a skirt made in three parts connected by a 6 meter Obi or belt, with each section overlapped by a three section panel with "Karlta" or small armour like plates sewed into each panel made from tightly woven "Twill" fabric material in order to give additional protection against scuffs or scrapes to the hips or groin. This is a perfect addition to any uniform for use either during combat training or competition work where close quarter combat is a natural state of play. Lightweight, Strong, and durable the "Kusazuri" is yet another tool fit for purpose, whilst keeping you mind on the task at hand.
We provide an addition layer of protection to the “Ninpo Yoroi” outfit if requested at an additional cost by adding a 2mm HG Alloy plating sewed into each individual “Karlta” or octagonal shape of which traditionally is armoured using compressed lacquered paper in many Japanese combative uniforms or armour. The 2mm HG Alloy plate will give additional protection against cuts and slices to vulnerable areas of the body during combat, with similar protection to compressed lacquered paper used in traditional Samurai Armour. However, aluminium is very difficult to cut with a life blade, but it can deform on impact with one of which you need to consider? nobody want to be struck with a live blade, but it is better with some protection that without it at all?. On ordering please select either “Costume” for no Armour, or “Tactical” for Armour in the listing prior to purchase. ( The default is “Costume” )
