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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
