Product Description

The YAKUDO 躍動 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 YAKUDO 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.

Please click here for the  YAKUDO 躍動 Measurement Size chart to confirm that the uniform has the measurements you desire for a proper fit.

 The uniform will shrink 2.2% in length and 1.8% in width.

  7. Poor fit

    Posted by P on 23rd Jun 2021

    Tricky picture and categories, I took it because it was the only one heavyweight in the LATEST UNIFORMS category. The vest is very more long that you could expect by watching the pictures so be sure of your choice. Personally I look like in a laboratory coat and doesnt like how I fit in it at all which is very disapointing for a karate gi of this price.. The vest is nearly to my knees.
    Otherwise the material is high quality as expected, the brodery is fantastic.

    TOKAIDO note: We are sorry that this uniform is not as you desired. It is important to check the size charts and compare the measurements against a uniform that you currently wear and like the fit of. Then you can be sure to order the best for you. We hop that you will give us another opportunity on the future.

  8. Tricky picture

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Jun 2021

    Tricky picture, I never though the vest was so long and I'm very disapointed because I don't feel good and don't like my look in it at all, which is very sad for a karate gi of this price.. Little bit small for my shoulders. Otherwise the quality is perfect, outstanding material and excellent embroidery. Be sure of your choice if you order it ! Don't reproduce my mistake.

    TOKAIDO note: We are sorry to hear that you didn't make the best choice for you. We believe that you probably would prefer our ORIGINAL line with the original uniform measurements and especially a shorter jacket. Please check the uniform size charts to confirm your purchase next time.

  9. Great product and great product.

    Posted by Manuel on 22nd May 2021

    As my fist Tokaido gi I bought a few yeras ago, great quality, top product and arrived on time.

    TOKAIDO note: Please enjoy and follow the washing instructions so that you can use it for many years.

  10. Only the best

    Posted by Umit Subasi on 13th Apr 2021

    I had my first Tokaido about 40 years ago and still stick to it. For decades, these uniforms have set the benchmark and they continue doing so. Outstanding material, perfect embroidery, excellent craftmanship, attention to detail coupled with great & very responsive customer service. Thank you.

    For sizing, I would recommend to order one size smaller than your actual height, unless you have special requirements. Otherwise, the pants will be relatively wide cut on legs and with a loose waist. They will also be typically a bit long, deserving a few folds, but that's normal. The jacket on this model is however a very long cut; probably a consideration for Tokaido to make some adjustments.

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your many years wearing our uniforms and informative review. We would like to remind everyone to please check the size charts and compare to a uniform that you wear and like. We hope to serve you well into the future.
