SAW Traditional Heavyweight Uniform
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.

The uniform will shrink 2.2% in length and 1.8% in width.
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 https://translate.google.com/#en/ja/ to CREATE and then COPY and PASTE into the field(s) you desire. We will confirm that the translation is correct before production. If you prefer English/Roman letters, then type directly in the field(s) of your choice.
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 un-embroidered uniforms require 5 weeks and embroidered uniforms require 6 weeks.

I've been a Tokaido customer since the late 60's and the product quality never wavers! Top notch! Thanks for keeping a traditional cut available. I find the SAW uniform cut to be the most comfortable.
TOKAIDO note: Thank you! We aim to please.

Tokaido for Soo Bahk Do

There is no comparison between Tokaido uniforms and the rest in the martial arts world. Totally in its own class. If you are a serious martial artist, then this is for you. Don't settle for any other. You won't regret it. That said, I prefer this cut as a Korean martial art practitioner. Lots of room to kick.
TOKAIDO note: Interesting comparison, thank you for your review.

I've owned a Tokaido gi before and when this one arrived I could tell that it was of the same high quality as my previous one. The only reason I'm giving this product a 4 rather than a 5 is because due to my build I have found it impossible to find a gi that was the right width and length. Whenever I purchase a gi, they all seem to be made for someone with a lanky type of build. Because I have wider shoulders and a more muscular build, any gi I purchase has to be modified to shorten the pants and sleaves. I hope in the future, they will design a gi for people with a broader frame like myself but for now Tokaido is my brand name of choice when it comes to karate uniforms. The last one I owned I have had for around 7-8 years with it taking heavy training throughout that whole time and it is only recently showing the damage of all that time. I would suggest this brand to anyone who wants something sturdy for heavy training because one of these will last you longer than 15 cheaply made karate uniforms.

Thank you for your thoughtful review. We are happy to have a 4 star review with this type of criticism and we will discuss the possibility of a uniform people with a "stockier" build. Again, thank you.
High quality product
