Service details
Jacket Option - Magic Tape

  • A set of Velcro tape to secure the jacket during practice, at the level of the chest and/or hips.
  • This option was often requested by customers and is a modern take on of the classic chest cord.
  • We still recommend the classic cord option, because it is more adaptable it keeps the jacket better in place.

Service details
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.

Seido Tenugui - Seishin Itto Nanigoto ka Narazaran

Made in Japan

This traditional Tenugui (Japanese hand towel) can be used as such in Kendo, Nippon Kempo or Jukendo but also as small towel to wipe off sweat during practice.
In the center is the logo of the Seido brand, the Kanji "Do" or "Michi", found in Aikido, Judo, Karatedo etc. which means "way".
Roughly translated as "where there is a will, there is a way", this well known proverb "Seishin Itto Nanigoto Ka Narazaran" means more precisely "when the mind is concentrated, nothing is impossible".

Please hand-wash in cold water before first use.

External resource: the origin of the tenugui (off site).

  • 100% Cotton
  • Traditional size : 98 x 34 cm
  • Traditional "Honzome" dye, meaning a dye that deeply penetrates the fiber.

Mushin Tenugui

Made in Japan
Color: White or Navy

This traditional Tenugui (Japanese hand towel) can be used as such in Kendo, Nippon Kempo or Jukendo but also as small towel to wipe off sweat during practice.
In the center is the Japanese expression "Mushin", which has a meaningful value in any martial arts but is particularly well known by Kendoka.

Mushin (無心) is a mental state often translated as no mind in English but the translation does not reflect the profound meaning of the expression well.
Mushin is a state of mind free of thoughts of anger, fear or ego. It does not mean that there are no thoughts at all, but those thoughts are perfectly focused on the task at hand and free of emotions that cloud influence one's judgment.
Often experienced during hard practice / Shiai by practitioners, the final goal of any Budoka is to conserve this state of mind at all time.

Please hand-wash in cold water before first use.

External resource: the origin of the Tenugui (off site).

  • 100% Cotton
  • Traditional size : 98 x 34 cm
  • Traditional "Honzome" dye, meaning a dye that deeply penetrates the fiber, resulting in a color that is well fixed.

Dogi & Hakama Sashiko Bag

Made in Japan

Material: 100% Unbleached Sashiko Cotton

Dimensions: 43 cm x 55 cm (rope length is about 195 cm in total).

Embroidery color: 18 colors to chose from (the same color applies for both the kanji main design and the name option).

Name option: Name embroidery at the bottom of the bag (see product pictures)

This cotton bag can fit a dogi, hakama, belt and towel. The ropes and port on the back are thick and comfortable. For optimal quality, Seido logo, Aikido calligraphy, "Ki" calligraphy and all other designs are not printed but embroidered. Made 100% from japanese made unbleached sashiko cotton, this product is eco friendly.

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".
  • Judo - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Karatedo - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Kendo - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Iaido - 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).

Product Information & Size Chart

  • Classic Single Layer Kendogi (BS100)

    Made in Japan | Without Back Seam | Single Layer | Sei Aizome

    Material: Cotton 100% - Shrinkage: ~3%
    Weight (size 4 Jacket): 0.8 kg
    Shape: "Traditional Kendo Cut"

    This is a standard type Kendo jacket: genuine Aizome dye, single weave, no back seam, and lightweight. The entire jacket (upper and lower part) is made of Sashiko weave (rice grain) fabric. Featuring a classic cut, it is great for beginners and experienced practitioners alike, and particularly for those looking for a high quality made in Japan Kendogi for a small(er) budget.
    In comparison to the BS200 model, it is slightly lighter, and hence suitable during hot summers or overheated Fojos.

    This jacket already comes with a chest and a hips cord to keep it in place during intense practice, and it is possible to also add a Velcro fastening (black) through our customization options.

    Unlike as for our Aikidogi, the Sashiko fabric is cut and sewn vertically for extra flexibility and comfort.

    Sei Aizome dye: Aizome dye bleeds heavily. Most Kendoka are used to it, but in case this is your first Aizome product, please make sure you know what Aizome is before placing your order. You will find a detailed article on our blog about traditional Japanese Aizome dye.
