The HAYATE meaning hurricane (aka NST), is a "Polycotton Super-Lightweight Karate Dogi" that has become Tokaido's most popular tournament style uniform and can be seen in most high level international competitions. Developed with the direct input of competitors of many styles and organizations to meet the standards required for the best combination of comfort, feel and "look" for competition.
Material: 50% cotton / 50% Polyester
Expected Shrinkage : Length: Approximately 2% / Width: Approximately 2.2%
WKF APPROVED dogi has Tokaido Label and WKF logo label, with Tokaido (kick) logos on the left breast and back of the neck.
First kumite gi I have owned and it is fantastic. The material is very soft and loose but also quite thick. It is very comfortable and there is no restriction in movement when throwing techniques, especially kicks.
I was at first worried about how it would fit. I am 5’10 (180cm), 65kg of a slim build and the size 6.5 (185cm) gi fit well before washing and fit perfect after washing (it shrunk as expected).
Would definitely recommend this gi for fighters, just go half a size higher to allow for shrinkage.
