  1. Best karate uniform

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Apr 2024

    Just bought my second karate gi from Tokaido. These suits remain in great shape and quality after years of training. Oss!

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your review. We look forward to serving you again.

  2. A good Karaté Gi

    Posted by Nuno Carvalho - PT on 10th Dec 2023

    The only reason it doesn't get top marks is because it's not produced in Japan. Pants are slightly larger than expected. Otherwise, everything is impeccable: fabric seems quite robust, elegant cut... There was no need for the White Belt...

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your review. TOKAIDO has strict quality control for all our uniforms and we are happy that we didn't disappoint you. We hope to serve you again.

  3. Amazing quality, one of the best for its price.

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Feb 2023

    I've been using this karate-gi for quite long enough to know this is one of the best I've used for its price. I highly recomend it, great quality and great shoping service.

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your review and understanding that TOKAIDO uniforms have very good cost performance. We look forward to serving you again.

  4. Great quality for the price and great shopping experience

    Posted by JCA on 17th Jun 2022

    I ordered one with personalized kanjis and with a personalized embroidered logo.
    I also asked Tokaido to shorten the sleeves and the length of the trousers (based on feedback from other buyers and the size chart) for a couple of extra bucks. Manufacturing took 4 weeks, but shipping from Nagoya Japan to Santiago Chile took only 5 days.

    I wanted to use it before I could comment, and I can say that it feels like a very good Karate-gi. I wanted to buy this model to test how the brand was (quality of manufacturing, embroidery, fabrics, responses, etc.) and the buying overseas experience, and I couldn't be happier.

    The next one I order, will be a Custom Tailored one.
    Tokaido made it so that it no longer makes sense for me to buy another brand.

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you so much for your kind, comprehensive review about our manufacturing and customer service. We look forward to serving you well into the future.

  5. Excellent product and service

    Posted by Winston on 9th Jun 2022

    I ordered the Ibuki TU1 karatedogi on Golden Week itself LOL. Once operations resumed, Tokaido got back to me on my inquiries and order and it was a breeze hearing from them. Upon confirmation of order, it took about a week to produce the karatedogi and a few days later, it was at my doorstep.

    I had ordered size 4.5. The uniform seems large at first when I tried it on for the first time even though I ordered the correct size, where I found the length of the pants a little longer than I expected. However, once I wore it to the dojo, it was a different story: it fitted perfectly. When doing kumite, it didn't feel obstructive or too heavy and the fabric was comfortable. When doing kihon and kata, it had a nice amount of snap to accompany the movement. Nice confidence booster.

    It felt a bit long at first, but it wasn't at all: it was just comfortable.

    Definitely would buy another Tokaido again in the near future... I am expecting this one to last me a long while.

    Thank you, Tokaido, for the excellent product and customer service!

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you very much for your extensive, positive review. We look forward to serving you again in the future.

  6. Quality decision

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Dec 2021

    For years, I’ve worn a heavyweight but undersized gi. Finally decided to invest in a quality suit and I’m thrilled with the result. I’m 5’11” and medium build; the 5.5 gi felt really large first time on but after training with it I realised it’s perfect. Great quality, great communication with Tokaido, and a very happy customer! Treated myself to an embroidered gi for that extra touch of class. Oss!

    TOKAIDO note. Thank you for your review and we are happy that you are satisfied with our uniforms that we make in Pakistan. When you are ready we hope you will order one of our Japan Made uniforms to compare.

  7. Amazingly happy with the level of quality

    Posted by Karl Smith on 26th Nov 2020

    Having recently begun training again after a 20 year hiatus I decided to spend money on a quality gi that would last me a long time. After a LOT of searching, I figured that the people who made the original karategis are probably the ones who know the most about the art, and I was not disappointed. The embroidery options were wonderful and when the gi arrived I was really taken aback by the quality of the weave and seams. It felt a bit large at first but after a couple of washes it's shrunk down to a good size. The legs are perhaps a little long for me - I have short legs so it would have been nice to have the option to shorten them, but as this is my first gi since I was a child, I had no idea how long they needed to be. However, the stitching on the hem is so robust that I can just give a quick turn up at the end and not lose anything, so it's not so much of a problem. The gi has a really nice snap and all my moves just feel more legitimate now than they did when I was training in sweatpants and vest. I'm reliably informed by my sensei that the gi should last me all the way to black-belt (which I imagine is something like five years), so at the price I really couldn't be happier. This thing oozes quality craftsmanship, and if I do need another gi either before or after black-belt, I know where to come. Outstanding.

    TOKAIDO Note: Thank you for your very comprehensive review. We hope other customers will learn something from it. Our Japanese made uniforms are made to last if you take good care. Please follow these instructions and we are sure you will be satisfied.

  8. Amazing service from Tokaido Japan and a great value in my Gi

    Posted by Ryan on 17th Oct 2020

    Very fast shipping from Japan, with a nice order tracking service. This alone gets a 5 star review. The Ibuki TU1 is a great gi for the price. Very crisp cotton and a nice color. The traditional waist is nice as well. It has a great snap to it, considering its lighter weight, and the fabric crispness keeps it away from your skin during harder training.

    The Gi was a bit large, but it allowed me to have it taken in slightly for a custom fit. I'm slightly over 5 foot 10 inches, and bought the 180cm size 6.

    I'd buy this Gi again for sure....possibly a half a size down. Very happy with the product and Tokaido as always.

    TOKAIDO note. Thank you for your comprehensive review. We appreciate how you understand the craftsmanship that goes into all our uniforms. We look forward to serving you always.

  9. Bigger than expected but the cut is very comfortable

    Posted by David M on 31st Aug 2019

    Reading the other reviews I was afraid the gi would be to tight to move comfortable but it was not the case. My other gi (from a different brand) has a more tight cut and even though it is WKF certified, it is not as comfortable as this one.
    I just wish I didn't had made the dumb choice to ask for a gi half a number bigger than my real size (I'm a 6 but ordered a 6 1/2). I was afraid it would shrink more that 10% and make it unwearable, but it seems that the shrink is considered in the size chart. So do yourself a favor and order the right size, do not over adjust considering the shrinking!
    Also my name in katakana looks great, although I had to do adjust the phonetic translation to the one used in Spanish for my name.

    TOKAIDO note... Thank you for the review. If you wash it in hot water it may shrink to the size you wish ... but we cannot guarantee nor recommend this.

  10. Bigger and hoter than expected and made in Pakistan

    Posted by Jose Fabiao on 7th Jul 2019

    Maybe I was not paying attenction, i got a made in pakistan gi not expecting it. The size looks pretty above the expected for the height, my son as 1,67 so i asked for 1,7 and is way to big for him, so make your size choose wise. The feednack from my kid is that the gi is too hot, maybe it will be a good fit for winter time. So it was a sucessful birthday present :-(
    Regarding service and time, my congratulations to TOKAIDO alltought the transportation price is out of this world, but at least they comply totally with the planned date of deliver.

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your review and we hope your son will wear in the wintertime as you wrote. We do write in the Product Description that the uniform is made in Pakistan. We also have a link to the size chart so that you can check the measurements for proper fit. We recommend that if you ahem any questions in the future before purchasing that you email to customer service and we will be happy to help.
