Very good karategi
Posted by Nicolas on 28th Jul 2021
Very good karategi, high fashion, the lines, the seams are perfect, finally for me it is like an Armani in the karategi . Personally, I really like the traditional line, so It is worth every penny invested. My first original Tokaido but not the last. I will come back with more orders.
Quick tip: Make sure to order the right size because it will shrink by 5 cm (2 inch). I am 178 cm and I took size 7 for the jacket and size 6 for the pants, so it was well calculated before order. As I have already said , I like the traditional style , not tournament . After the first wash is perfect.
TOKAIDO note. Thank you for your review and especially the good advice to check the size charts. We are delighted that yours is "perfect". We look forward to serving you again.
High quality product

Hello, It's my third TAW Tokaido and I am still very satisfied with the quality of the suit (material, sewings, cut). I also really enjoy the way it snaps. Not too heavy, but not too light, it's perfect for me.
TOKAIDO note: Great review! We couldn't say it better ourselves. Thank you.
Great gi, but beware of shrinkage.

Great gi. Not too heavy, not too light. Material is good and you can definitely see the attention to detail Tokaido has put into it. Also, embroidery is just superb.
Something to be aware of: the length of the jacket (measurement #1 in the size chart) will shrink about 7% -- the 3% on the website is just the average for all measurements.
TOKAIDO note. Thank you for your considered review and note on shrinkage. As you may know, shrinkage is not an exact science and the percentages published will correspond to 1 to 3 centimeters difference in the length and width of the uniform. NOTE* It is very important to follow the washing instructions and always wash in cold water and line dry after wearing each time. This will ensure that your uniform will last for years with minimal shrinkage.

Ich habe das selbe Gi seit 6 Jahren, und ist noch immer in sehr gutem Zustand Zustand, empfehlen nach jedem Training 30 Grad wachsen.
TOKAIDO Hinweis: Vielen Dank für die Bewertung und Empfehlung.
