Aiki Japan is ecstatic to introduce yet another highly anticipated model to our Gi Lineup.

Our “Houou”, or Phoenix Gi , performs just as the name implies, a mystical presence that keeps on arising after it burns elegantly.

Aside from the fact that it is crafted from a lighter/softer fabric and incorporates industrial leading stitching methods, the Gi has countless advantages over the heavy and non forgiving conventional “Rice Grain” fabric which was considered the Standard of the past.

Our main goal for the production of the “Houou” Uniform was to provide the utmost comfort, all the while, having the ability to wick the sweat away from your body. It is a must for those long summer intense practices, or dreaded long seminars that have you stuck in a cold clammy Gi in between sessions.

Due to the technological advances in the fabric industry, the “Houou” Gi will not disappoint in terms of dry time for all of the hard-core Aikido-ka.

Just a warning though, once you try this Gi, you may likely have to part ways with all of your current Aikido Gi’s!

ABOUT AIKIDO GI
Particular to Aikido Gi is the reinforced shoulder section that extends further than that of other Gi. This prevents rippage around the shoulder area for both grappling and defense. Also unique to Aikido Gi is the soft and pliable collar that meets heavy grasping in this area.

NOTE
  • May shrink 1 to 2 inches after the first washing.
  • Do not use Dryer, hang dry only.
  • Stretch the Gi after the first washing to prevent shrinking.
  • The width of shrinkage may differ from the water temperature, soaking time and drying method.
  • No returns accepted after washing.
Embroidery Orders and Policy

We will not accept any returns for garments that have been embroidered, imprinted or embellished in any manner.

it is a sturdily made light-weight gi July 22, 2014
Reviewer: Jennifer Yabut from Texus, USA  
I bought this gi about a month ago. It felt stiff out of the bag (especially the collar), and I was hoping repeated wearing/washing would help soften it a little. It softened up a *little* bit, but not as much as I hoped. The gi also shrunk quite a bit, especially the sleeves (about 2-3 inches). It also doesn't close in the front very well, and I'm constantly re-adjusting it. Overall, it is a sturdily made light-weight gi, but not what I expected for over $100. if I knew how stiff this one would be, I may have shilled out the additional $20 for the "softened" version of this gi. Or just bought another lightweight single orizashi gi.
