Features Include:

500g Sashiko Ori Fabric - Softer and more comfortable than other 500g fabrics on the market, this specialised version of the classic Aikidogi material features bold rice grain stitching.

Kyushu-Dri Lining - Effectively creating a double layer Gi, the Kyushu-Dri man-made technical material lines the inside of the Sashiko Ori Gi and works to draw sweat away from the skin to keep you cool during you hot training sessions.

Tailored Aikido Sleeves - The traditional cut tailored sleeves are the perfect length to subtly expose the wrist for grabbing attacks and just the right aperture for comfort and style.

Suwari Waza Reinforcement - Mid-weight canvas trousers feature a double thickness at the shin and knee to add protection from friction and increase longevity.

Double Layer Koshi Bubun - Double thickness diamond weave fabric on the lower part of the Gi maintains durability in a common area of weakness in lesser quality models.

Minimised Seams & Reinforcement - With a single seam design located at the sides of the Gi, this model elminates unneccessary bulky reinforcements and bumpy back seams to improve comfort during Ukemi and general use.

Shrink to Fit Sizing - Heavily pre-shrunk, the Gi are cut to shrink to fit with the first few hot washes.  After initial shrinkage we advise regular washing at 40 degrees with softener for comfort.
