Following feedback from students we have started to slightly alter some measurements of this aikidogi, the body is wider and longer, the arm length slightly increased, the collar has been reduced in width by 1cm and made a touch softer. The most popular sizes, 4 and 5, have the new measurements and the others sizes will be updated as stock is reordered. For those people who ordered a size 5 for that little extra space should now be quite happy with a size 4.
These uniforms are a high-quality, strong and durable, premium, single weave dogi (training uniform) made with the more committed, long-term student in
mind and are specifically designed for Aikido training. They are custom made for Aiki Kai Australia and follow the Japanese style and cut, which is
wider and longer in the body, with shorter sleeves than a Judogi. Available in sizes 2 - 6. This is a special
weave cloth, fabricated to be tighter and firmer than our standard version to take a lot more strain, but without bulk. They have been pre-shrunk however
some shrinkage will continue to occur with the first few washes.
The pants come with side and centre loops, the padding runs from centre thigh to the ankle. This means your knees won't rub on the padding seam when doing kneeling techniques, which can happen with standard Judo pants.
White belt is included.
Note: These dogi are made from fine cotton and have a shrinkage rate of about 2%, they always appear a little oversize when new. Therefore, the sizing for these uniforms is different from other uniform models on this site because this model does not shrink to the same degree. Be sure not to hot wash a new dogi as they may shrink unduly, allow them to shrink naturally after a couple of cold washes first.
Guide for delivery charges:
Premium Aikidogi = 2.3kg
We aim to provide the best delivery service possible to members, but the mix of compact, bulky items and long weapons can be create a complex shipping list. We have two delivery options, an Australia Post bag for more compact items and a mixed order of compact items and long weapons. The system calculates the total weight of your order and the shipping list shows the options available. Aust. Post bags are an Australia-wide delivery service and mixed orders are set by location. However, check the list as a mixed order rate may sometimes be less expensive to ship than using multiple post bags. As a guide: a training set of 1x dogi, a bokken & jo (+/- a tanto) and a weapons bag is under 5kgs. 2 x sets would put you into the next weight bracket and so on.
Special Orders - if you have an order outside the weight range the system already provides, then prior to ordering you can email our wholesaler with your anticipated order and YOUR LOCATION, they will confirm the delivery package or packages you need to pay.
If required, you can top up the set delivery costs by ordering one or a multiple of the individual dollar delivery packages.
Note: Delivery charges are adjusted frequently.
