Excellent dogi. I have used regular gis for decades and this is my first "top shelf" dogi. The fabric and construction are so superior that if I saw an Armani label inside I would not have been surprised. Hamid was extremely helpful, I measured one of my old gis and with his help I determined the correct size. I really appreciated Tokyodo's sleeve and hem service. It came sized correctly right down to the cm and fits like it was custom made for me. As a pleasant side note I was told that Tokyodo do not regularly stock these black dogi so it actually was custom made for my order and to my specifications.
The cut of the dogi is also correct for a Kenpo uniform, which is cut differently than a traditional Shotokan dogi. This was pointed out to me by Hamid that Tokyodo specifically cut the dogi in this manner. This is greatly appreciated since there is not that large of a selection for top notch Kenpo uniforms.
The canvas used in this dogi is different from the heavyweight gis common
I have to admit that after many heavyweight Gi that I bought in the past, none compared to the Tokyodo Int. KB-10 Heavyweight Black Gi I ordered from Kuroobiya. This is the first time that I have ordered from them and I must admit that I was skeptical to purchased online from an international vendor, but I am glad I did.
Hamid responded to my email and explained the whole process and the average time I should expect my Gi. I ordered t on Feb 26 and I received it by Mar 19, just a few days after my birthday. I tried it on and it is perfect to what I need, i ordered it a little bigger to account for shrinkage but overall is not much larger than my measurements.
The feel of this Gi is amazing and the embroidery is superb. I will, from now on, make all my Gi purchases from Kuroobiya and I will recommend it to anyone who trains in martial arts and are looking for a quality made Gi.
This Gi met or exceeded all expectations. The fit and finish is exceptional and the size is perfect. I have received much praise from my fellow students about how good this Gi looks on me!
