Tokyodo Int. KENKON Special Lightweight dogi for Kata
After wearing the other two main brands for years I gave this one a try, and don't regret it. Light enough for agile kumite, crisp enough for kata, perfect all-rounder for competition. The cut is roomier than Tokaido, allowing more unrestricted movement, jacket is a bit longer than Hirota, which in my opinion looks better. The katakana embroidery (name on lapel) uses tighter spacing, which works better for western names with many characters. The customised length sleeves included in the price is a plus, and an important factor for any karategi to look and feel good. Please note the different size chart (being 1.77m / 75kg, I'm a size 6 in the other brands, size 5 in Tokyodo). Hamid was very helpful throughout the ordering and dispatching process, as usual.
