Aikidogi - Deluxe 750g Sashiko Ori
Product code: AG-3-750
These models have been specially made to better suit the purposes of the Aikido practitioner, as the best alternative to Judo style suits which are not really ideal for this art. All Gi include trousers and are supplied complete with white belt.
Special Features on the AG-3 Deluxe Aikido Gi:
Extra Soft Material - This Deluxe 750g Sashiko Ori fabric has undergone a special softening process in addition to having a brushed cotton interior, greaty increasing the comfort.
Short Sleeves - All traditional Japanese clothing has a ¾ length sleeves. For unarmed arts this is particularly practical as there are many grabs to the wrists and suchlike which can be impeded by the longer Judo style sleeve.
Minimised Reinforcement - Due to the nature of Aikido it is not necessary to heavily reinforce the lapels of the Gi. Reinforcement therefore serves no purpose for an Aikido Gi other than to stiffen the suit considerably and make it more uncomfortable to train in.
Fewer Seams - Bulky seams have been minimised by manufacturing the Gi from two pieces only, front and back. This increases the overall strength of the Gi whilst removing the seam at the top of the shoulder and arm which makes the cut of the Gi better and rolling falls more comfortable.
Double Layer Apron - A common point of failure of Judo Gi is on the apron part. As a result the lower apron section of our new Gi has been made with two layers of soft fabric to eliminate this problem. This softened fabric also makes the Gi especially suitable to be worn with Hakama.
