Product description: 'Sensei' Japan Judogi (JOA)

High-end Judogi Teacher "Sensei"

The Judogi JOA, nicknamed Sensei, was KuSakura's first exported Judogi. It was the one that created the brand's reputation of being the best Judogi manufacturer in the world.

True demonstration of KuSakura Tradition, the 'Sensei' is the favorite judogi of the KuSakura Chairman, Mr. Iwao Hayakawa.

Weighing 890g / m², this model is the heaviest we offer. The jacket is designed in a traditional manner from double layered Sashiko (rice grain) fabric, on the upper part and Hishisashi (diamond weave) on the lower part. The pants on the other hand are made from a classic canvas fabric.

The Sashiko fabric used for the upper part of the Judogi was especially developed to create roughness on the outside, that complicates the partners grasp, while remaining soft on the inside for great comfort.

Available in over a hundred sizes, comprising a series of specially designed sizes for women, it is the Judogi with the largest size choice currently on the market.

Regarding the women's fit: For all other Judogi, the sizes are unisex. Also for this model, it is absolutely possible to opt for the men's fit even if you are a women. The women's sizes simply have a slightly optimized cut at the level of the chest and the hips.

This Judogi is no longer conform to international competition standards since the new regulations of 2015, it however still answers the purpose of local, regional and national competitions in most countries (including e.g. France, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada).

  • Fabric: 100% cotton
  • Double layer: soft inside, rough outside
  • Material weight: approx 890 g / m² (Super heavyweight)
  • Weight (size 5): approx 2.7 kg
  • Sanforized - Pre-shrunk
    > Shrinkage: approx. 6% (already included in the size calculation)
  • Availability: usually within 10 to 15 days for most sizes.

About embroideries

All embroideries are realized on a high-end professional machine of the brand Barudan. An embroidery delays the shipping of the product by 5 days, (resulting in a total delay of 2 weeks for in stock Judogi, and about 6 weeks for Judogi made to order).

The embroideries have an average size of 2.5 cm per character for Japanese characters and English capital letters and 1.5 to 2 cm for English lowercase letters.

Embroideries are available on the border tail, right sleeve and left chest of the jacket, and on the left side of the pants. If you want a logo embroidery on the chest or shoulder, please contact us for a quotation.

1 - Embroidery position

Embroideries are available on the border tail, the right sleeve and the left chest. It is not possible to embroider the left sleeve because of th brand logo on that side. The embroidery size varies depending on the position and the available space on the product. The size of a particularly long name for example will be reduced to fit the maximum possible embroidery length.

  • Border tail (vertical for Japanese characters, horizontal for English cursive letters): maximum 3 cm / character, maximum total length 16 cm.
  • Right sleeve (horizontal only): maximum 4 cm / character, maximum length 13 cm.
  • Left chest (vertical only): maximum 5 cm / character, maximum 15 cm length.

Name + initial = 2 names. If the requested embroidery content differs from the number of word option, your embroidery will be reduced to what has been paid.

2 - Embroidery content

By default we offer name and/or family name embroideries as well as other expressions up to a maximum of two words.
It is necessary to choose the corresponding option for the desired embroidery to ensure a correct billing.

  • First OR family name: e.g. Marc, Tony, Smith, Miller, etc. including double-barreled names.
  • First AND family name: e.g. Marc Miller, Tony Smith etc. (To avoid long embroideries, we do not recommend double-barreled name PLUS family name.)
  • Initials: e.g. MT, CD, etc. carried out in English (Block or cursive letter) only (initials do not exist in Japanese lettering).
  • Other word: e.g. Dojo name, or common expression such as "Judo" or "Jujutsu". Note that this option is limited to a maximum of 2 words.
3 - Languages and fonts

It is possible to embroider in Japanese and English. For embroideries in Japanese free translation is provided. In this case you simply have to enter your name in English and then select "Japanese - Kaishotai" or "Japanese - Gyoshotai"

  • In English: vertical or horizontal
  • In English cursive letters: horizontal only.

Non IJF (local) competition regulations

  • The official IJF models are only required for international competition and national competition (1st division). These models are considered to be too light by many practitioners who rather opt for a classic model. The Judogi JOA and JZ are perfectly adapted to local competitions (including examinations) and national competitions (except 1st division).
  • The size regulations for local competitions are generally similar to those of the IJF regulations. The width of the sleeve/pant leg: 10~15 cm of space between your arm/leg and the fabric. The jacket must be wide enough to cross it in the front on 20 to 30 cm. The pants must be long enough to be less than 5 cm from the ankle point. And finally, the sleeves must be long enough to cover the pisiforme bone.
  • The Judogi sizes are calculated to match after washing.
    Shrinkage is taken into account. (The size chart reflects laundered Judogi.)
