Japanese Zori Tatami Sandals Description

To make you see the benefit of these Japanese Zori Tatami Sandals, all you need is your training partners dirty foot in your face.  Suddenly the purpose presents itself very clearly. It doesn't take many trips on and off the mat to make it filthy and mean you'll be scrubbing your Gi clean till midnight. Even swept training halls carry dirt and you can't help but walk across them. Everyone should have some kind of footwear coming on and off the mat. 

What are the options, well people do wear a cheapo pair of flip flops, but why not get the real thing. Here they are. Japanese Zori Tatami Sandals. Not only the traditional footwear designed for this exact purpose but also look and feel great. 

They’re lightweight and pack easily flat, everyone will want a pair when they see them and the only downside is you’ll be constantly quizzed on where you bought them. 

Advice from the shop on Japanese Zori Tatami Sandals

"My only advice on these, apart from insisting on them, having used them myself for many years during my Ju Jitsu career, is that you can end up with quite a few identical looking pairs along the side of the mat. It's pretty easy to mix them up. 

When training at your club this may not be a problem, if it’s a small club, but at big national events, tournaments, competitions, it will be. Try adding your name, label, sticker, colour, whatever you think, to your pair so you don’t end up with someone else."

Doug Swift - Owner of Enso Martial Arts Shop

Shipping your Japanese Zori Tatami Sandals

We have a few different options for posting your items at Enso Martial Arts Shop. Prices vary depending on the overall order, weight, size etc. The checkout page will automatically workout the possible options for you. 
We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Courier Tracked - Order before 1pm, we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next working day, this is not a weekend service. It is fully tracked and we will send you the tracking number when we process your order.
Hermes - In our experience an extremely slow service, we cannot guarantee it will arrive. It isn't an option on the website for good reason, so if you want this pitiful service and your parcel thrown into a random hedge near your house, if you're lucky, just to save about £2 then simply call us on 0117 942 5832 and we can process your order over the phone. 
UPS Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:
