Iaido Obi (Belt)
This is a traditional kimono belt, from Japan, suitable for iaido training. The length is 401cm by 9.4cm wide.
The width of this belt will support your katana and is far superior to using a standard obi as provided with most karate or judo suits
Made from shock resistant foam these knee protectors will provide the comfort required for long periods of training on your knees. An essential item as iaido is generally practised on a hard floor with lots of work from a kneeling position
