In-between these, all practitioners, from beginners to the most advanced, can chose from an extensive single- or double-layered standard range. All models are available as either jacket or pants only, or as jacket and pants sets.

Our extensive hakama range includes both traditional cotton and synthetic models, all especially conceived by Seido for the practice of Aikido. Our hakama are fully handmade in Japan (fabric and cut) at a workshop that was established over a hundred years ago. All models have been inspected and approved by the Aikikai Hombu Dojo and can be fitted with the official Aikikai logo.Learn more about our workshops !

Seido's Bokken, Jo, and Tanto are all handcrafted in Japan by the 4 remaining traditional workshops, Horinouchi, Nidome, Aramaki & Matsuzaki. Seido is the only company in the world (including Japan) working with these 4 workshops simultaneously. Our weapons were specially selected to match the needs of all practitioners and our range consists of traditional bokken, special (koryu) bokken, and various types of Jo. All our weapons are available in several wood species, in either varnished or oiled finish.Learn more about our workshops !
Our staff is composed of Aikido practicioners practicing in dojos accross Japan. This allows us to get daily feedback on the mat and therefore, to have a total confidence in the quality and relevance of our products, as well as in the very high level of our customers service. We consider all our clients as fellow practiconers.
SeidoShop has its own high quality "Barudan" embroidery machine made in Japan and controlled by computer. It is especially designed to embroider on all kind of material, from the most delicate silks to the thickest belts. Engravings are also realized in our facilities, within a week.
All Seido hakama, dogi and obi (belts) have passed the Aikikai standards tests and therefore, can be fitted with the Aikikai logo (optional). The Aikikai foundation approval is a guaranty that our products comply with the quality standards set by Hombu Dojo Shihan and are perfectly suited for the practice of Aikido.
I chose Seido for the quality and great value of their equipment.
I particularly appreciate to be able to discuss directly the most minute technical details with their international team of Aikidoists.
