MADE IN JAPAN
The Tokyodo AT-2 is my first Tokyodo brand dogi but it’s definitely not my last. I own both the Shureido NW-3 and the Hirota Pinack for Kata dogi and have been training in them for quite sometime but the Tokyodo AT-2 has become my personal favorite of the three.
The AT-2 is made with a similar poly-cotton material as the NW-3 and Pinack but it doesn’t feel as super stiff (it still IS pretty stiff) and it feels lighter in weight than both. The feel of the dogi while wearing it is very smooth and during hard training it does a good job keeping me cool, all thanks to the material. The stitching is very tight, evenly spaced and the color is the Japanese classic “snow white” that has a blueish tint to it making the AT-2 a beautiful dogi to look at.
During training it feels light but still a bit stiff on the body. The snap that the dogi produces when executing techniques is very loud. The stiffness of the dogi aids in keeping the dogi itself away for the skin and that makes i
This AT-2 is a great dogi. It's my first Tokyodo and I have to thank Hamid for his recommendation. Out of the box it has the classic blueish white color that I love (and I'd like it could last forever). At the first glance it looks like an exact copy of the Shureido New Wave but, looking better it's clear that if it's a copy, well, it's the fair copy. Stitchwork, seams, fabric and cut, they all seems a step forward. Absolutely flawless. The stitching lines are even spaced, regular and beatifully seamed and its overal craftsmanship is the best I've ever experienced in a Japanese dogi. Once washed it tends to go a little stiffer, but not as stiff as I expected and after the first two hours of training I can say that this is the best poly-cotton dogi I've ever worn. It looks very sharp without restrict my movements. It is also very comfortable: not as much as a 100% medium-weight dogi but almost that much. Initially, I was a little disappointed because of the B measurement (shoulders) wer
fantastic quality uniform. I am 5'8,185 and purchased a size 5. jacket fits good- pants way long so had to have them hemmed. NOTE- u can get free shortening from tokyodo which I didn't know. After washing and let to air dry( as recommended) - its very very stiff. Not sure I would use other than kata competition due to its rigidity. Will try drying in the dryer on low to see if stays stiff. Good crisp snap performing kata as advertised.
