When it’s the time to get your bogu, one essential equipment is the zekken, a name tag that goes on your tare. Not having a Zekken makes it very difficult for other Kenshi to recognize you know when wearing your men. Contact Konno-sensei with the following info:
1) Your last name (that goes at the bottom in English alphabet)
2) If you want the BKK Wheel in the middle, which is the official team zekken, or your name in Japanese in the middle if you prefer.
