After buying this dogi I came in a hate-love relationship, I always hit the skirt whenever I do Kata, but the judges love the sound the dogi makes. Now I can personally say that the Tokaido KONGO is one though and lasting dogi, him and I have been thrown and beat various times and not a single tear or fabric stretch has appear, yet it ages gracefully with every practice and cold water wash. I recommend this dogi for any one doing jujutsu. "Truly outstanding that gi of yours" my Company Commander says.
