Tailored for the ultimate kata, every kata!
By modifying the standard size of the Otowa (SSA) this dogi has been produced especially for kata competition.
For larger presentation and greater snap, Tokaido have gone to extreme lengths to fully satisfy kata competitors with the perfect fit without the need for a fully tailored dogi.
Widened shoulder (where the sleeve attaches to the jacket) to allow for unrestricted arm movement and the production of ultimate snap sound.
Extra reinforcement of hems of pants, sleeves and jacket with extra rows of stitching so beautiful kata can be performed without the loss of shape.
Widened pants at the thigh and hems to support dynamic movement.
Shorter than standard pants as requested by customers.
Tailored Jacket, longer at the back for beautiful presentation.
Tailored jacket with less excess at the back (narrows at the waist area)
longer Jacket slits for greater mobility and comfort.
Now with a tuck at the waist
Available with "High waist" styled pants for better comfort and less slipping down
Material : Cotton, 60% / 40% polyester
Expected Shrinkage: Length: Approx. 2% / Width: Approx. 1%

This gi is amazing! Made from light but stiff material giving a great snap! The cut of the jacket is perfect for kata. Slightly wider arm/shoulder measurement makes movement really unrestricted and the jacket doesn't ride up when doing rising block! The one thing to note is the trousers are quite wide in the leg. If I were to buy again I would probably get a size down , the length would have been fine bur a little less wide. Saying this the wider leg does lead again to unrestricted movements. I also had my name embroided on the jacket which was of great quality!
Overall the best gi I have owned!
