Aikidogi - Intermediate 500g Sashiko Ori

£45.83 ex VAT
£55.00 inc VAT

Our bestselling Aikido Gi for almost twenty years!


High quality Tengu® brand uniform specifically designed for Aikido practice.  This mid weight 500g Gi is the ideal compromise between weight and durability and are a great option for beginners and experts alike.


Features Include:


Upper Fabric - Pure white 500g traditional Sashiko Ori cotton.  The Sashiko fabric reaches 20% further down the Gi when compared to most Judo uniforms which gives the Gi a great look especially when worn with a Hakama.


Lower Fabric - Durable single layer diamond weave Hishizashi material.


Tailored Aikido Sleeves - The traditionally tailored sleeves are the perfect length to subtly expose the wrists for grabbing attacks and are just the right aperture for comfort and style, whilst reducing the risk of accidental snagging.


Minimised Seams & Reinforcement -  With a single seam located at the sides of the Gi, this model eliminates both unnecessary bulky reinforcements and bumpy seams at the back and shoulder, improving comfort during Ukemi and general use.


Reinforced Trousers – The 9oz Zen cotton trousers feature a drawstring waist with a double layer of fabric at the shin and knee, adding protection from friction during kneeling training and increasing longevity.


Shrink to Fit Sizing – Minimal shrinkage of 3~5% is taken account for in the initial cut and our sizing chart.


Aikido Belt - Proportionately sized white belt included.

Bought a 160cm gi - great quality and fits perfectly. I will definitely buy again and can recommend.

Fantastic quality of Gi and the delivery was shockingly good, however, this Gi is so wide it wrapped round to my back. I am 6ft and 12 and a half stone so normal size. Unfortunately it will be going back.

New Gi
As expected my most recent purchase is superb. Excellent fit and quality as ever and the custom embroidery is excellent. Received in quick time too. Thanks once again.

Extremely good
These gi are very soft to the touch, durable and have a great cut. They have become my favourite gi for aikido. The cut is quite roomy, so I prefer the next smaller size for myself (I am 1,86m tall and am of normal built and I find that the 180 gi is definately big enough for me).

Fits well and lasts a long, long time!
These are seriously worth the money! After 5 years of practicing 3-4 times a week my Gis, are only now looking a bit worn. The 3 suits I've been rotating have withstood monthly bleachings, a lot of training and a lot of washing in that time. The quality has been excellent, the fabric comfortable and the fit perfect (not easy for a curvy girl to find). The trousers lasted almost as long as the jackets- the only pair to fall apart split only two months ago. Now I'm replacing them, there's no other Gi I'd consider.

500g Aikidogi and red oak bokken
I was advised to buy my equipment from Nine Circles by my sensei. I called them before purchasing my gi as I was uncertain as to the most suitable weight for a beginner. Despite calling just at closing time the staff provided thorough advice about the different types of material and sizing, and seemed motivated to find me the right option for my needs, not just the most expensive. This pays off in the long run because I'll be back. The items arrived in perfect condition, on time and carefully packaged. The red oak bokken is beautifully crafted and strong. The 500g Intermediate Aikidogi is comfortable, well-padded and fits properly; the sizing chart certainly seems accurate in my case despite a belly that I hope aikido will remedy! It is sturdy but at the same time allows excellent freedom of movement. Others have mentioned the lack of inner seams in the shoulder and this definitely prevents chafing during breakfalls. As for the weight, this isn't at all noticeable when wearing the jacket; just comfortable.

Excellent in every aspect.
This was my first time ordering from Nine Circles and before I purchased anything, I read the reviews. You always query the authenticity of the reviewers when the comments left are all so glowing and positive but to my surprise everything said about Nine Circles is the truth! I hadn't trained in some years and have put on some bulk as a result and so was unsure as to the size of Gi i would now need. A phone call to Martyn and all was made clear. My Gi arrived 2 days later but there was a problem with the belt size which after another call to Martyn was resolved brilliantly. Very satisfied with the quality of the Gi, delivery time and customer service. I will definitely order again from Nine Circles and can't recommend them strongly enough.

My one-stop shop for good reason
I have previously bought two medium weight aikidogis and a red oak jo from NC, which have all been of outstanding quality, as has the customer support, which has been of a standard I have rarely experienced with any kind of purchase (they even told me to send back my first dogi after it shrunk more than they originally said it would and sent me a bigger one at no extra cost!). I have just received my fourth item from Nine Circles (a red oak bokken) and felt compelled to write a review, which I have never done on this type of comments section, as NC has once again surpassed itself in product quality and delivery speed (my bokken took two days from order to receipt). Thank you for everything NC, you have become my go-to supplier for all things budo and I'm just sorry I haven't given you a great review sooner - although I have posted this on the section for bokken and jo now too, with your well-deseved and long-overdue 5 stars for those items.

Excellent Advice
Nine Circles recommended by my Sensei. I received Sound advice from Martyn when buying my first Gi. It arrived as detailed and fits perfectly. The Gi is very comfortable and great quality. I recommend this Gi and will definitely be visiting Nine Circles for future purchases...

What more can i say
The Gi is fantastic quality, its very strong and hard wearing! The service received was amazing throughout, i honestly cant praise Ninecircles enough!!!!! They have definitely gained a new customer and i will not shop anywhere else!!!! remarkable!
