But we have a list of companies that consistently produce high-quality karate uniforms and products. We don't house each of these brands, but we hope to partner up in the near future to provide our community of martial artists the best supplies for their training.

You've probably heard the name Tokaido since you've started taking your karate classes. They're a Japanese company who've been around for more than five decades and have several certified distribution centers around the world. That's almost a lifetime!

We think that's enough evidence.

Shureido is the 1b when people think of high-quality karate uniforms. 1a would be the Tokaido brand. There are many martial arts masters who wear the Shureido brand karate uniform--Otsuka Kazuta, the grandson of Hironori Otsuka, being among them.
There's a brand taking the karate world by storm. Seishin International was created by a popular karate blogger (who's actually not just a keyboard warrior), Jesse Enkamp. He's backed by several karate masters and karate-ka. We haven't actually seen or tested this product, but the response this gi has received from the karate community has been overwhelming. Make your own decision based off some of the information we found:

Meijin karate uniforms were developed under the guidance of martial arts masters. They're fairly priced and the quality is second to none. Our only problem with these is the fact that it's difficult to distinguish between the different types of unfiforms they have: Meijn Pro, Meijin Dojo, Meijin Tropical, Meijin Champ.
