Tokaido have the reputation for producing the best Karate Gi's in the world. This Tokaido Karate Gi, the Kata Master is a high quality premium product developed specifically for Kata. The uniform is approved by the WKF and features very short sleeves and trousers and a long body or skirt, similar to a Japanese Cut Karate Gi. It improves punching and kicking, and has what Tokaido called "ultimate-Sound technology". This 'ultimate sound technology provides very impressive sound when the Tokaido Karate Gi wearer uses dynamic body movement. In essence it makes an amazing sound when the Karatka is punching or kicking.
It is WKF approved so can be worn in all competitions but has not brand logos on the chest or neck, it has become a favorite or the JKA and Shotokan karate styles, as well as WKF styles.It is made from 100% cotton which is a material that is getting rarer and rarer in Karate Gi's these days and the cotton is brushed on the inside to give a very comfortable feel on the skin. Due to the Tokaido special cut, the body tension is staged, therefore dynamic movements are visually supported, which is very useful in competitions.
In terms of build quality you won't find one in the world, the Tokaido Karate Gi Kata Master has multiple stitches and reinforced seams, the final seam on the skirt of the jacket is extra wide and heavy, this helps the skirt to hang down and keep the Karate Gi looking sharp. The Tokaido Karate Gi Kata Master also come with Trousers which have a traditional drawstring. One amazing feature that stands this gi above so many else is that it is pre-shrunk, therefore you won't get any shrinkage from this Karate Gi. It'll stay the same size after washing.
“An amazing gi and well worth the money, nothing like it for the money”

This is actually an excellent Gi for Traditional practitioners such as myself. The explanation video on the site was especially helpful and answered all the questions that I had - the most important of which was confirmation that this Gi does not have lots of manufacturer badging all over it; I was looking for a Gi without badging so this really helped me a lot.
The Gi was shipped very quickly and arrived very quickly in excellent condition.
Great service, and I'd highly recommend.
1st time customer. Good service and delivery from enso. Tokaido kata master is comfortable, durable and doesn't stick to the skin under heavy sweating from dojo sessions. Would recommend as an excellent upgrade from cheaper brands or a like for like replacement.
Excellent service, excellent GI
I just wanted to say thank you for the incredible service.
I ordered my Karate-GI yesterday, and it arrived about 9:30 next day. Brilliant
