Product Description

The OTOWA SSA 音羽 is Tokaido’s kata uniform made with a 10oz weight combination of 60% cotton and 40% polyester for strength, comfort and ease of movement. This fabric combination coupled with a new sewing technique maintains the uniform's shape  and provides a distinctive snap when executing techniques correctly.

Please click here for the OTOWA (SSA) 音羽 Measurement Size Chart to confirm that the uniform has the measurements you desire for a proper fit. 

This uniform will shrink by 2% in length and about 1% in width.

Custom Embroidery 

Tokaido Japan provides the highest quality embroidery in Japanese or English. No company can surpass the level of embroidery perfected by Tokaido. You may choose to embroider your style name and/or your personal name in the general locations designated in the uniform graphic. For Japanese text, please select from the pop up menus by clicking on the Kanji Style Names or the Names in Japanese Katakana below the field that you desire. If your Style or Name is not in the menu then use this Google Translate link to CREATE and then COPY and PASTE into the field(s) you desire.  We will confirm that the translation is correct before production.

As with all uniforms that are made in Japan by Tokaido Japan, each uniform is made as it is ordered. This way we can ensure that you receive the best uniform possible. Currently unembroidered uniforms require 8 weeks and embroidered uniforms require 8 weeks.

Product Reviews

  1. Gi top

    Posted by Christophe on 27th Mar 2024

    Vraiment très beau gi, très agréable et assez léger. Mais mon favoris restera toujours le TAW, dommage qu'il ne soit plus disponible.

    Tokaido note: Merci pour votre avis. Malheureusement le tissu TAW n'est plus fabriqué. Nous avons hâte de vous servir à nouveau.

    I have decided to go back to Tokaido for my Karate Uniform. I was not disappointed at all. The Gi is second to none and Tokaido are first class in everything that they do, from the material, design, manufacturers, Administration Staff and communications (with regular updates). I would highly recommend Tokaido.

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you very much for your very comprehensive review of the various areas of the company. We look forward to satisfying your needs in the future.

  3. Great fabric, Great cut! (But still prefer BSI)

    Posted by Pong on 1st Feb 2023

    I have been wearing traditional fabric & cut & for 20yrs.
    As trend changes, last year i ordered BSI , it was BEST both in fabric "lightweight & snap".
    But as i grow thinner tbis year i must reoerder another gi. So i revisited website but no BSI available, thus i ordered SSA.

    I am happy with SSA for Kata, **BUT BSI IS STILL BEST FOR IVERALL HYBRID PURPOSE. Please relist it.

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for continuing to order from us even though we can no longer carry the BSI due to various factors.

    Posted by Al on 15th Feb 2018

    Website, ordering, and embroidery all went well. The gi is very nice. The only issue is that the top is a bit tight. The bottom fits well.
