MADE IN JAPAN
After much thought and with advice from Hamid I ordered a fully tailored Pinack for Kumite dogi. I have to say I wasn’t disappointed.
The fit is great, it is so much more comfortable than my old Tokaido kata master - note:
(The Tokaido kata master wasn’t made in Japan, so not to discredit Tokaido at all I’ve ready many good reviews of their Japanese made dogi. That dogi was a step up in quality compared to the previous Cimac dogi I’d used too.)
The Hirota Pinack for Kumite is very light and extremely easy to move in. I often felt a bit restricted when kicking in my old dogi, and I’m not the most flexible as it is! So the Pinack has taken away that restriction making it easier to get the best out of my limited flexibility.
There is still plenty of snap to the dogi, it isn’t so light that it’s all floppy and pyjama like. It hold its shape well for a light dogi.
The embroidery is beautiful. I had the JKA emblem on the chest and my name on the jacket
