Aikido is a modern martial art founded by Morihei Ueshiba who studied the quintessential parts of traditional Japanese martial arts and paired them with strict mental training to create aikido. Itís not about competition, but rather measuring your own mental and physical development by training in techniques that are created from irimi, tankan, defensive poses, and breathing.
Tozando's Aikido uniforms and hakama are not generic uniforms for use in any martial art but are specifically designed for aikidoís unique movements and have been developed using feedback from aikidoka and teachers of aikido like Masatake Fujita.
Since their introduction in 1996, Tozandoís aikido uniforms have become trusted and well loved not only by aikidoka in Japan, but all over the world.
Among the domestic aikido uniform producers, Tozando is the only one that has its own workshop and factory. Sewing professionals at our facilities in Kyoto and Iwate use the utmost care to create uniforms that aikidoka have come to rely on.
Because of this we can offer a wide range of customizations and can help you get a uniform that matches your body shape and helps you look great. Although some modelare manufactured overseas, because of careful quality controls and by maintaining production standards at our facilities in Japan, we can offer high quality aikido gi and hakama at a reasonable price.
