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.

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

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.

This product is a Seido original product designed by our team

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)
  • 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).

Product Information & Size Chart

  • Classic Single Layer Kendogi (BS100W)

    Made in Japan | With Back Seam | Single Layer | Bleached (white)

    Material: Cotton 100% - Shrinkage: ~3%
    Weight (size 4 Jacket): 0.9 kg
    Shape: "Traditional Kendo Cut"

    White Kendo jackets are popular among women and kids, although there exists no interdiction for men of using white jackets for Keiko (training) in Kendo. This jacket is also appreciated by Koryu practitioners, and even by some Aikido groups focusing on weapon's training. Overall, compared to Aikido or Judo Gi, this Kendo model is less resistant, but has the advantage of featuring a cut that greatly suits sword practice. The jacket is longer and the lateral vents have been replaced by a back vent, so it stays securely in the Hakama. The shorter and tighter sleeves gives you more freedom to move with a sword.

    100% cotton, relatively lightweight, this is pleasant to wear. This model features a chest cord and a Velcro fastening (white) can be added through our custom options.
    Unlike as for our Aikido jackets, the fabric (Sashiko/rice grain weave) is used vertically, resulting in an enhanced flexibility and great comfort.

    Please note that Kendo jackets are longer, generally narrower and feature a straighter cut than Judo and most Aikido jackets. This model is not suitable for practitioners with a strong built, over what is usually called "Ideal built" corresponding to 180 cm height for 70 kg weight).

    いい剣道着

    剣道としては使いやすいですが、普通のサイズよりやや大きいです。

    居合は向いてないと思います。

    うきゅ (古流柔術)
    丈夫で柔らかい古風な剣道着

    古い柔術の稽古用に購入しました。

    刺子は、柔道合気道着に比べて小さくコワゴワしていないです。

    襟は合気道着に近く、一般的剣道着に比べてかなり頑丈な作りで、胸ぐらを取る武術でも十分使えると思います。

    剣道着ですが柔道着や合気道着と形状が近い腰継ぎ(腰下菱刺し)です。

    一般的な剣道着は総刺ですのかなり珍しいですね。

    今現在、白の剣道着でこの形状は星道だけなので、これからも販売してほしいです。

    最高の剣道着だと思います。

    An excellent uwagi for koryu practice

    Being 190cm tall, and 93kg in weight, I've often struggled finding Japanese made keikogi that were sufficiently comfortable for extended practice. I've purchased or have been gifted various items from Seido over the years, consequently, I contacted Jordy about the possibility of them producing a custom made version of this uwagi for me. The end result is quite impressive. As I don't generally require a more robust judo/aikido uwagi when I teach, this jacket suits my needs perfectly, and pairs well with my Seido nobakama.

    Seido's customer support is excellent, as is their approach to supporting Japanese artisans. I'm very pleased to recommend this ethical company to all who value quality, robust and fit-for-purpose gear.

    Wow!!!

    I have been practicing aikido for 19 years. During this time I tried many different keikogi. Those that are designed specifically for Aikido are too thick for me, so I always overheated.
    In addition, I practice kenjutsu, so I wanted something more in kendo style.
    This model fit perfectly! With a height of 170 cm and a weight of 75 kg, I took size 3. Keikogi is quite long, so it does not get out of hakama, with shortened sleeves to practice the sword. The fabric is amazing! Soft and durable.
    Special thanks for the branded handbag! A pleasant surprise)
    Now I will choose a new hakama! )))
    Arigato Gozaimasu!
