Created under the supervision of Kazumasa Moto, this latest karate dogi based on the now discontinued Hiryuu, has a further evolved fabric, with each part of the dogi further developed.
Message from Kazumasa Moto, who supervised the development of this dogi:
"I'm Kazumasa Moto. I actually wear this dogi in the Premier League and all over Japan. It feels smooth to the touch and is very comfortable to wear. we have made a very good fabric that is light and firm. I chose a color that can be recommended for elementary and junior high school students, women, and anyone, and a color that shines in the lighting of the match venue. I like it because it has a very luxurious feel. "
Although it is a ready-made size, its features give it the feel of a fully tailored dogi.
① Extra wide (5cm) cuffs and hems on Jacket, sleeves and pants to give a bigger look during perfomance of kata
② Pants feature a tucked waist, giving a clean look around the waist while allowing for room around the buttocks.
③ Jacket length is longer at the back to allow the part under the belt at the back to look bigger.
④ Wider sleeves with an improved look around the shoulders while maintaining range of motion of arms.
⑤ Provides a solid sihouette, making the arms and legs appear thicker for a greater impression.
⑥ Maintains an equally loud snaping sound and stiffness despite being lighter and thinner than the SSA and HRU.
