Product Description

The SHIKON 士魂 is designed for everyday all around training. Strong enough to last yet light enough for comfort, the Shikon will provide you with many years of service. This uniform is ideal for everyday training. The Shikon uses no 11 cotton canvas designed for comfort that lasts. 100% cotton is the original wicking material that will keep moisture away from the body.

Please click here for the SHIKON 士魂 Measurement Size Chart to confirm that the uniform has the measurements you desire for a proper fit. 

This uniform will shrink by 3% in length and about 2.8% 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. If you prefer English/Roman letters, then type directly in the field(s) of your choice.

Production Time 

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 4 weeks and embroidered uniforms require 8 weeks.

  1. Training Do-Gi

    Posted by Urich Lau on 1st Dec 2022

    Totally satisfied with the quality and built of the Shikon TAW karate gi.
    I live in Singapore and it's hot all year round, it is heavy and tough material but doesn't feel too hot while wearing it.
    And the embroidery for my name in kanji is nicely done.

    TOKAIDO note: We are happy to hear that our fabric is comfortable in the heat. Enjoy.

  2. Shikon TAW Karate Gi

    Posted by Marco on 6th Oct 2022

    Excellent craftsmanship and attention to details, as always. Fits like a glove. Great weight/comfort balance. I would buy this again.

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you and we hope you do.

  3. Gi super !

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Oct 2020

    Karaté Gi magnifique !
    Juste un peu serré aux esselles, peut-être pouvoir prendre la veste plus grande, mais d'excellente qualité.

    Note TOKAIDO Merci. Nous espérons vous servir à nouveau.

  4. Great Quality and Service

    Posted by Senpai H on 18th Mar 2020

    Just wore it for my grading ie Size 6.5. No restrictions in the pants or shoulder areas. Gives off a nice snap with every punch. Also delivery was super fast from Japan to Regional Australia. I got this with JKA Embroidery and was flawless like the embroidery on my belt. Thank you once again for a great product and service!

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your comprehensive and positive review.

  5. Exceptional Quality

    Posted by Joeyforkeye on 10th Nov 2019

    Very happy with this purchase. I purchased a 6 1/2 (I am 186cm and a slim build) and the fit is good - I prefer a slimmer fit and this design is spot on. If you are athletic or larger build you would definitely need to go 1/2 to a full size larger than specifications based on height. I was considering purchasing the 6 but am now very glad I went with the larger size. The construction is perfect and the canvas quality is very high - great snap! Communication and shipping was perfect. Arigatou gozaimashita! TOKAIDO note: Thank you for the comprehensive review. We appreciate your pointing out the postive features of the uniform and service.

  6. Original DoGi

  7. do-gi

    Fantastic service from start to finish over the moon with the my new Tokaido excellent quality

    TOKAIDO message: Thank you for your review.

  8. Exceptional time .... 10 days after the order I received my karategi.

    Posted by Sam on 6th Jul 2018

    Karategi of very good quality.
    Just order a size 6.5 to be comfortable in but the big size pants look great even one size too. I think the pants in 5.5 would be perfect. See if the next order it would be possible to order both piece pants and separate jacket. If not, a big thank you to the people who took care of my order are real professionals. Thank you to the pleasure of working with you again.

    From TOKAIDO. Thank you Sam for your review and we can provide split sizing of Japanese made uniforms. Next time just write in the NOTES section the size of the trousers you desire. We look forward to serving you.

  9. High Quality and well balanced in weight

    Posted by Nirandon on 6th Jul 2018

    I purchased Shikon TAW after using student grade TU model recently. They look similar except TAW has bluing which make it appeared whiter.
    TAW has better fitting, softer, less shrink and slight different in cutting. I am happy using both TU and TAW. Best part for me would he the dual usage in Kata and Kumite.

  10. Excellent Quality

    Posted by Darren on 21st Jun 2018

    I got size 6, which was a bit large initially, however it did shrink as predicted and now it's perfect. I'm just under 5'11", but the size 5 1/2 made no sense to me. Be sure to read the Measurement Size Chart and check it against what you're currently wearing. That helped me decide, however this uniform is slightly wider. I would order this again in a heartbeat. The wait time was no longer than they state, both worth it.
