How to order a Zekken - 2021
If you haven't ordered your own club zekken yet, you should do so as soon as possible. Zekken are the special bag-shaped garment? device? tag? that goes over the centre flap on your tare. It's a one-time cost because you can remove them easily and swap them to different bogu as necessary.
Above is a screen-shot of the new ordering page which Zen-Sankei has made easier for us at my request. Previously you could only order one zekken at a time and only using the account holder's name. But when I pointed out to them that we have families training with us, they made the change. Thanks Zen-Sankei!
The main part of the zekken -- the Nanseikan name at the top and the logo in the middle -- are set up at the factory in Japan already. All you need to do is:
- Choose your size - choose large if you are using an adult sized bogu. All our new members (apart from Amelia) are wearing adult bogu.
- Choose type - all three types are fine, it's totally your preference depending on your budget. Machine print is the cheapest and quickest to produce.
- Input your name - where it says 'Name (bottom)' enter the person's first name in title case and then family name all in upper case, as per the example in the picture "Ben SHEPPARD".
