Product description: Competition Japan Judogi - White (JOF)

Official International Federation - IJF Judo Gi - White

The Judo Gi JOF, is KuSakura's new model approved by the International Judo Federation since April 2015. Issued after over a year of textile research, the used fabric for this model is also, alike the fabric for the models JOA and JKK, woven by KuSakura.

KuSakura's research team did his utmost to ensure that, despite the significant drop of the fabric weight imposed by the IJF, this model is as thick and heavy as possible. Weighing 750g / m², this model flirts with the maximum weight allowed for the IJF Judogi.

To retain maximum strength in face of the relatively light weight of the fabric, the 100% cotton weave had to be abandoned for a more resistant blended fabric, compounding cotton fiber (70%) and polyester fiber (30%). This maintains a tensile strength greater than 2200 newtons, as required by the IJF.

The Judo jacket is designed from double layered Sashiko (rice grain weave) 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.

Available in over 75 sizes, comprising a series of standard, large and slim sizes, this is the only officially Judo Gi approved IJF worldwide for which standard sizes do not need extra sleeves or pant legs shortening.

This model can officially be used in any kind of competition at any level but is essential for the competitions run by the International Judo Federation. Particularly flexible, making the opponents grasping easier, we do not recommend this model to practitioners who do not really need it. The polyester fiber allows quick drying and compact folding, which is particularly useful for practitioners traveling a lot.

  • Fabric: 70% cotton / 30% polyester 
  • Double layer
  • Material weight: approx 750 g / m² (Heavyweight)
  • Weight (size 5): approx 2.3 kg
  • Color: blue (official IJF)
  • Sanforized - Pre-shrunk 
    > Shrinkage: approx. 6% (already included in the size calculation)
  • Red KuSakura logo on the left sleeve and on the lower part of the left pants leg.
  • Availability: usually within 10 to 15 days for most sizes.
    Certain small or large sizes that are not stocked may require a manufacturing time of 3 weeks.

Choosing your size

At the top of every high-end Judo gi's product page, you can find 3 buttons, each rendering more precisely one aspect regarding the size choice.

  • Given the importance of the sleeve length in official competition, and to avoid returns the exact length of your arms is required for the purchase of this model.
  • Size tables: displaying all sizes according to body measurements in detail
  • Size Helper: based on the size tables, automatically calculates your size by entering your measures (height, waist circumference, arm length, leg length).
  • Regulation and body: Explication of the IJF regulations and how to take correct measurements for calculating your size using the above mentioned buttons

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.

Official IJF rules concerning embroideries/markings

The embroidery standards for official IJF Judogi are very specific. Name embroideries are only allowed on the bottom of the jacket and on the top of the pants (as proposed on the product page).
The maximum size of the embroidery is 4 cm x 20 cm. Our team will do the necessary to adapt the size of your embroidery to the current standards. Therefore, the size per character for relatively long names/surnames will be reduced to not exceed the 20 cm total length.
Given the average length of Western names, the option "name AND family name" is not recommended for such products, because the embroidery size will be significantly reduced. Embroidery other than your name or surname are banned in international competitions.
Unless otherwise stated by the customer, embroideries on IJF products will be adapted to match the standards for competitions.

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 Japanese: vertical only, standard font Kaishotai or calligraphy Gyoshotai
  • In English: vertical or horizontal
  • In English cursive letters: horizontal only.
  • Note: Horizontal embroideries on the border tail are shifted to the bottom of the jacket (see product pictures).
  • Note: Initials do not exist in Japanese. Any initial embroideries will be automatically embroidered in English!

5 - Colors

How to take your measurements

  • Measure 1: Your size
    > If you are close to the upper limit of your size, take the next bigger size.
  • Measure 2: Your waist size (jacket & pants)
    > Make sure to measure your waist size and not your hip size.
  • Measure 3 : Your arm length (sleeve) (jacket)
    > From the center of your back (vertical back seam of your jacket) to the pisiform bone.
  • Measure 4 : Your leg length (pants)
    > From the waist (the height at which you tie your pants) to the ankle (lateral malleolus).

IJF regulations regarding the sleeve length

  • The JOF model (white) and the JOF (blue) as well as JOEX (white), JNEX (Blue) and JOJ (white) meet the regulations of the International Judo Federation. If the measurements are correctly taken to choose your size, KuSakura guarantees compliance with the regulations for competition. These regulations are symbolized by the diagram adjacent.
  • The new regulations 2015 are very strict regarding the sleeve length which must reach the pisiform bone (lump on the outside of the wrist) with a tolerance of one centimeter. That is why we ask you the exact length of your arms, from the center of your back to the pisiforme bone. To avoid measurement errors, please compare your arm length measurements with the measurements of your current Judo jacket for confirmation (see diagram above).
  • The Judogi sizes are calculated to match after washing.
    Shrinkage is taken into account. (The size chart reflects laundered Judogi.)
