  1. Excellent

    Posted by Sensei Anibal on 8th May 2018

    I'm happy with your service. The gi is very good. More than what I expect.

  2. GREAT

    Posted by Nicolas jardin on 20th Apr 2018

    Karategi is just GREAT!!!!

  3. SAW karate Gi

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Mar 2018

    Since achieving black belt I wanted a more superior quality gi. I was very pleased with this traditional SAW gi. I ordered slightly bigger one to allow for shrinkage. The craftsmanship, quality of the fabric, stitching, colour and size are superior to any other gi I have owned, thank you.

  4. The Tokaido Saw Traditional uniform (Dogi) review

    Posted by Jon (dewclaw) on 26th Mar 2018

    I think the Tokaido Saw Heavyweight Traditional Uniform (Dogi), is by far, I think, the best uniform that Tokaido makes! It's the same dogi, that I wore 51 years ago when I was teaching Shotokan Karate Do in college, and I still have that uniform today! If you want the best, and want to look the best, order a Tokaido, Saw Heavyweight, Traditional, Uniform, today! They are true to size, if not a little big (but you can shrink it).

  5. A Quality Gi

    Posted by Rafael Algarin on 2nd Feb 2018

    I have not bought a new gi in many years. So, the fit and feel of the new gi took a little getting used to. But in the end, it is the best feeling and fitting gi I've ever owned. My only suggestion is if you're accustomed to size 6, go half size larger to 6.5.

  6. Worth every penny!

    Posted by Steve Diaz on 19th Jan 2018

    Material used has no equal. Stitching and craftsmanship are apparent throughout. Nothing elas comes close!

  7. Tokaido Karate Gi's are essential kit for the serious Karateka.

    Posted by Chris Evans on 9th Nov 2017

    I have practiced Karate for 45 years and I have always worn a Tokaido Karate Gi. A real quality product. Well made, comfortable and importantly, they look great. First class craftsmanship and made with the best materials. I also found the communication and attention I recieved from the company when ordering was professional and reassuring, I never wear anything else. I think Tokaido Karate Gi's are a 'must' for the serious Karateka.

  8. The best Karategi heavyweight...

    Posted by Nohe on 30th Oct 2017

    The materials with which the karategi were made are excellents, yours products are craftsmanships and the compromise to attend the client is extraordinary, congratulations.
