I received my custom Gi yesterday. I went with the SEN fabric. I like it, it is strong with a good snap while still being light weight. The embroidery looks great. I’m happy with Tokaido’s quality, as usual. I have bought many Tokaido products over the past 20 years and will continue to in the future. Very satisfied with my purchase.
If you order from the U.S. remember that the measurements should be in metric.
TOKAIDO note. Thank you for your comprehensive review and we appreciate your continued patronage. We hope to serve you for another 20 years.
Custom Made Gi

I received my order for a custom made Gi ahead of schedule. The communication process for the order was very good and they were most helpful with all of my requests. The Gi is top quality , embroidery is second to none. Above all the Gi fits perfect, no excess material which makes the Gi much more comfortable to wear . I would highly recommend. Worth the Money Spent ...
I will be Using Tokaido again in the future ...
TOKAIDO note. Thank you so much for your positive review.
The perfect karate gi
Posted by Jonas on 22nd Feb 2022
This is not the first gi I purchase from Tokaido. Previously I had the TSA and TAW gi's. All top notch!!
Now for the first time a custom tailored gi. This is the perfect karate gi for anyone who cares about top quality.
Especially the custom tailored version, that is perfectly sized and very comfortable. The embroidery is beautifully done,and the gi feels very sturdy yet soft on the skin.Also thanks to the team at Tokaido for carrying out my special requests.
Very happy and would highly recommend. The service at Tokaido is top notch.
Thanks and see you next time.
TOKAIDO note: Thank you for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review about the uniform, embroidery and service. We appreciate this and look forward to serving you again in the future.

Being tall and very slim I have never been able to find a gi that fits. I decided to order a custom gi and it is perfect! The TSA fabric is exceptional and the embroidery is beautiful. It is the most perfect gi I have ever had and I am so glad I decided to order a custom made gi.
TOKAIDO note. Thank you for your review and we are happy to hear of your satisfaction. Please follow the washing instructions on our website so that you will enjoy your uniform for years to come.
A great feeling

After so many years of using readymade dog is, it was the best feeling training in a tailored dogi. Great! Tokaido's quality is outstanding. TOKAIDO note: Thank you and we are glad you like it.
Best decision I ever made
Posted by Neal Yoshioka on 4th Jun 2018
If you're thinking about ordering a custom gi I recommend you do it. I've been training for decades and always thought about getting a tailored gi but thought that it really wouldn't make that much difference. I figured just roll up the pants and jacket sleeves and everything is cool. After putting on my custom gi and training in it I can honestly say that it makes a huge difference. You don't realize how binding and less comfortable an off the shelf gi is when training until you train in a custom gi.
Super happy and would highly recommend. The service at Tokaido is top notch.
Be careful with your measurements!

I ordered my first custom gi and was excited to receive it. When it arrived I was shocked at the tiny size of it, at first I thought I had been scammed. My measurements were in inches not centimeters, totally my fault. I now have a doll sized gi that I will never use unfortunately. Please learn from my error and give required dimensions in metric not US Imperial system inches. Sad face......If anyone needs a gi for a doll I have one that I will sell for cheap, lol.
