What do they wear during kendo?

Answer: Thank you for your question.

In kendo, we have kendo-gi (top) and hakama (bottms). Among kendo mates, we call the top, keikogi (training top) since we know it is for kendo.

They usually made of cottons but there are more options.

Color: Usually indigo. But we have white ones. We also have black but we don't really wear them. Indigo is traditionally worn.

When you put an armor on, this is what we look like.
