Product Description

The SAW Traditional Heavyweight Uniform is the original heavyweight Vintage Style uniform created by TOKAIDO's founder at the direction of various sensei in Japan. Made of 100% 12oz no.10 cotton canvas, the SAW uses TOKAIDO's original "Standard Cut"of longer sleeves and trousers with a shorter jacket. Created from the requests of karate's pioneers the SAW still remains a favorite of traditional karate practitioners even today.

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.

  1. SAW Traditional Heavyweight Uniform--Excellent!

    Posted by Craig Gilliam on 31st Mar 2021

    I just received my first Tokaido karate-gi—a SAW Traditional Heavyweight Uniform. It is of excellent quality—meticulous detail, fit, fabric, strength, and comfort. I am delighted and wondering how I will wear any other karate-gi after this one.

    Thank you for your excellent service and product (karate-gi). Your quality represents the high standards and deep traditions of traditional karate as an art and way of life. Oss!

    TOKAIDO note. Thank you for your considered and detailed review. We are very happy you like it and hope you enjoy it for years to come.

    The quality, the attention to the detail, the fit, the quality of the fabric, all equates to the greatest product on the market. I am very happy that I finally decided to buy Tokaido gi. It feels that you have truly put your "heart" into the labor of creating the gi. Thank you!

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your detailed review.
