Jacket Option - Magic Tape

  • A set of Velcro tape to secure the jacket during practice, at the level of the chest and/or hips.

Jacket Alteration - Sleeves Cut

  • Adjust the fit by shortening the sleeves of your jacket.
  • The length that is chosen in the selector is the length you want to shorten (cut off) on each sleeve. On average, customers demand a shortening of 6 to 12 cm. Refer to the size chart of each Dogi to know the precise length of the sleeves, but do not forget to take shrinkage into account (about 2 cm).
  • This is a good option, if you like a larger cut (or an overall larger size) but still prefer shorter sleeves.

Here are all the designs we offer and their meaning: 

  • The Seido embroidery is based on the Seido label attached to all Seido equipments.
  • The Aikido embroidery is based on a calligraphy found in the main dojo of Aikikai Hombu Dojo. It was created by Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei when he was 80 years old, a period in his life when his calligraphy reached its peak. Note that the depth and extension of ideograms are a sign of an open mind.
  • The "Ki' embroidery is based on the same calligraphy as the "Aikido embroidery" but only contains the second kanji "Ki".

  • Karatedo - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Kendo - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Iaido - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Jujutsu - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Zanshin - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : Remaining mind, or lingering mind. 
  • Mushin - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : No mind (mental state), or mind without mind.
  • Heijoshin - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : Calm, imperturbable, relaxed heart/mind
  • Shingitai - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : The unification of mind, skills and body.
  • Takemusu Aiki - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : Aikido concept, the unity of martial techniques through the concept of Aiki.

Option "Name Embroidery":

Optionally, you can add your name as embroidery. It will be embroidered on the left of the bottom part (same high as the Seido label), with a font size of 2 cm by 2 cm.
Please note that due to our technical settings and to improve the overall balance, it is only possible to embroider either a first name, a last name or a word (1 word).

    Superbe Karategi

    Avec une finition impeccable, ce karategi est de grand confort.

    Attention, une fois adopté, vous ne pourrez plus revenir à des Karategi de moins bonne facture.

    J'en ai eu l'expérience, car, suite à un lavage, mon Seido n'étant pas encore sec, j'ai dû reporter mon ancien Karategi; Résultat : je suis en train de m'acheter un 2eme Seido pour pouvoir en avoir toujours un de disponible pour l'entrainement.

    Une veste Karategi solide

    La veste est expédiée bien avant le délai annoncé. Les lignes de couture sont impeccables. Belle coupe. Magnifique broderie. Le coton est de qualité, solide mais légèrement rigide.

    Impeccable

    Commande expédiée et reçue exactement dans les délais annoncés, gi testé durant trois séances.

    J'ai pris une taille 5 pour mon mètre quatre-vingts deux, il tombe parfaitement. Avec les manches coupées d'une dizaine de cm, elles tombent juste sous le coude et laissent l'avant-bras bien dégagé, parfait pour le Gojû-ryu.

    La toile semble de qualité ; d'un blanc légèrement cassé, elle respire et sèche très bien de par sa légèreté. Noter que le tissu n'a que peu de claquant (ce qui n'est absolument pas un problème). Je n'ai rien à redire non plus quant au travail de couture, pas un fil ne dépasse, tout est fait avec grand soin.

    Très bon produit !

    Perfect for Summer

    I bought this medium-weight Karate gi to wear during the summer. I like it so much I may end up wearing it all year even though I have a lighter-weight judo style gi from Seido. This gi is sturdy and well-made but not too heavy nor too light. I chose a half size larger than normal for a bit more room and a longer bottom to fit better under tha hakama, and I had the sleeves shortened for Aikido practice needs. Looks great and fits great. Seido has the right gear available for all seasons.

    Trés agréable à porter surtout lorsque la sueur dégouline sur le front pendant l'effort : il reste très léger et ne frotte pas sur les cuisses durant l'effort. J'en commande un nouveau!

    très satisfait

    La fabrication du produit est très nickel.
    Le coton de grammage moyen est d'un bel aspect, robuste agréable à porter.
    taille choisie 1m85 pour 1m78.

    Super !

    Après un entraînement, deux lavages et un repassage, voici mon avis :

    L'ensemble est solide et on sent toute la rigueur qui a été mise dans les finitions (pas un fil qui dépasse, pas une couture de travers, etc.). On voit tout de suite que le coton est de qualité.
    La couleur est un très beau blanc, très légèrement ivoire ce qui fait qu'il n'est pas près de grisailler.

    Je mesure 1,66m pour 61kg, j'ai pris la taille 3,5 (165cm) pour la veste et le pantalon et tout tombe parfaitement.

    Merci !

    Irréprochable

    Premier entrainement avec ce karatégi...sincèrement...superbe impression, tenue impeccable tout en étant léger, un réel plaisir pendant l'entrainement. Nul doute que s'il tient bien aux lavages (en respectant les consignes) je n'hésiterai pas une seconde pour en recommander un autre d'autant que la qualité de service de BUDOEXPORT est elle même irréprochable !

    Non ! Aucun regret pour cet achat, vraiment à conseiller. Temps entre ma commande et la réception: 21 jours. Très correct.
