TSA Original ULTIMATE Heavyweight Uniform
The TSA Original kata do-gi is the original heavyweight uniform that was developed through extensive research and consultation with competitors of many styles and organizations to provide what is known worldwide as the Ultimate uniform. The TSA Original utilizes the strongest and heaviest no 10, 12 oz cotton canvas designed to endure the hardest wear to last. The heavier weight drapery folds enhance the distinctive “snap” sound made when doing techniques. This highest grade of cotton canvas provides twice the tensile strength and 20% more friction resistance for strong durability. Multiple stitches, reinforced seams and an extra wide and heavy skirt seam for extra strength. Cotton is the original wicking material that will keep moisture away from the body.
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 and then click on your choice. 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 all uniforms require 10 weeks for production.

Best Karate Gi Ever!

I have been training in Karate for over 43 years. The Tokaido Original Ultimate Gi is by far the best ever designed. Superior performance in all measures. I highly recommend it to all serious Karate practitioners.
TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your review and recommendation. We look forward to serving you again.

These products are quite expensive and there is a significant production time, but there is a reason and it is worth it for those who can afford them and wait. The production quality is outstanding, the fabric is bullet proof, and if cared for they last a very long time. I have been wearing Tokaido gi for 30 years and I still have components of my original gi to this day! I just received my new gi (fit is perfect) and have not trained with it yet, but I anticipate the same longevity this time.
TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your comprehensive review and we are very happy to hear that you have a uniform that you can still enjoy after 30 years! We look forward to serving you again.

I own two Shikon TAW dogis that I’ve trained in for years. I ust received my Original TSA heavyweight in exactly the time that was stated. The embroidery is superb and the black Tokaido label is classic. The pants were a little long for me, but a hot wash at 60 degrees shrunk them down 5cm. They are now the perfect length. Only cold washing from now on.
TOKAIDO note: Very happy to hear that the shrinking process worked out well for you. We cannot recommend it since it is so arbitrary and could have been disastrous. Enjoy your uniform.
