High Quality Karate GI
Posted by Unknown on 13th Apr 2022
Vey nice feel of the fabric. Love how it feels. I did buy a bit big. I am 172 cm and I bought the 175 cm version. It states it will shrink 2-3% but I have not managed to get it to shrink. So for me it is just a bit too big and I should have gone with the 170 cm. However I am a bit big around the waist so that part is a bonus.
TOKAIDO note. Thank you for your review and it will shrink little by little over the years. We hope that it will then fit perfectly.

This gi is exactly how it is advertised. Perfect for every day training all year around. Looks like kata gi; nice and crisp, fells like kumite gi; cool and light. Unbelievable!
Although I only have one issue with this gi; it's pants fasten exactly where I tie my belt which makes me feel uncomfortable and look unflattering. I am quite slim, lots of material bunches up under my belt. I have the same problem TSA heavy weight gi. If you are happy with the sit of the pants of TSA, you are going to fall in love with this gi.
TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your comprehensive review and we are happy to read of your satisfaction. We are not sure what could be done about the "bunching" issue and hope it isn't too uncomfortable for you. Also we appreciate that you gave us 4 stars with such a positive review. Most everyone gives 5 stars and your considered opinion.
Great training gi

This is the second BSI I have ordered since I have been very happy with the first one over the warm days of summer. The fabric is lighter but has great snap, making it a great training go for both kata and kumite . Thank you Tokaido !
TOKAIDO note. Thank you for the great review that explains well about our BSI.

A very nice material and fitting perfect. Also, the embroidery was very professionally done.
Communication with customer service is excellent too.
TOKAIDO note. Thank you for your great review.
Horrible Fit Great Materials
Posted by Ken on 21st Oct 2019
The fee of the materials is second to none! However, the actual fit is absolutely a let down. I’m 5’11” with longer limbs and broader shoulders. The top is WAY too short on my arms and much too tight around my shoulders and under arm. My Shihan who’s shorter and less bulky also believes it’s too tight on his arms and shoulder. Once again though the poly cotton mix is GREAT!
TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your review and appreciation for the material. Regarding the fit, it is important to check the size chart showing all the measurements so that this type of problem does not occur. We recommend checking the measurements of the uniform you desire with a uniform that you currently wear that you like.

-Not pajama thin or cumbersome like a heavy weight gi. -Washes and hang dries overnight. -Doesnt have wrinkles like 100% cotton gis. -Comfortable for year round use from temperatures ranging from 60 - 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your comprehensive review.
Better than expected

A lightweight gi that feels like heavyweight with perfect snaps during kata. The embroidery was very professionally done. Money well spent. Thank you for another great product, Tokaidojapan.
TOKAIDO note: Thank you. We aim to please.

This is a FAST Gi!
Posted by Justin Nowlen on 28th Aug 2018
I 'retired' my Kata Master after 2 years of solid use. I was looking for something a little lighter, but certainly not 'kumite' light. I love this Gi- it's the perfect mix of the shorter sleeve 'kata' jacket with the longer length inseam (pants are longer than Kata Master, down to the ankle vs. mid-calf).
The fabric is my favorite part- it's thinner than the med/heavy Kata Master so I feel a lot faster in my movement. It also seems to disperse heat better which was an issue with my heavier weight Gi. Surely this will help on hotter days (thinner fabric, makes sense).
Two iron thumbs up from me.
TOKAIDO note: Thank you for the informative review and we hope you enjoy your uniform for years.
