Size Choice

The size system developed by KuSakura is extremely accurate and covers 99% of the possible body shapes. Although it is very unlikely that you need custom-made sizes for your Judogi, it may seem difficult to find the right size. Here a detailed explanation as well as the size charts.

The automated system on KuSakuraShop

To simplify the size choice, we have developed a fully automated system that only requires to enter your measurements (your size, waist circumference, and arm length). Our program then chooses the most appropriate size to your measurements. Although this system is reliable, we recommend that you check the size chart before validating your order.

  • The system YFLB - Choosing your size in four steps:
    You need to determine your height and weight, allowing you to identify approximately your corresponding size in the size chart. The waist and chest circumference allow to specify if your muscle density is unusual (and is therefore more accurate than only the weight and size).
    E.g. if you measure 175 cm and are 85 kg, the corresponding sizes are 4 or 4F.
    > Y = slim cut: "half size" fitted cut (body width corresponding to a half a size smaller size)
    > YY = extra-slim cut: "one size" fitted cut (body width corresponding to a one size smaller size).
    > B = large cut: "half size" widened cut (body width corresponding to a half a size larger size).
    > L = extra large cut: "one size" widened cut (body width corresponding to a one size larger size).
    > LB = extra-large cut + : "one and a half size" widened cut (body width corresponding to a one and a half size larger size).
    > LL = extra extra-large cut: "two sizes" widened cut (body width corresponding to a two sizes larger size).
  • Length of sleeves and pants - Code F
    The code F indicates that the sleeves are 2.5 cm and the pants are 3 cm longer compared to the "standard" size.
    E.g. the size 4F features the same cut as the size 4, but the sleeves are lengthened by 2.5 cm and the pants by 3 cm. According to the same logic, a size denoted 3FF features 5 cm longer sleeves etc.

"Standard" sizes and "X System" sizes - JOA / JOF models

The sizes in the "X System" correspond to the extended sizes. They are not available in stock (made to order within 3 weeks) and are subject to a surcharge of 10-15%. They are indicated in red in the size chart.
Note that the extended sizes are available only for Judogi made in Japan and may vary depending on the product. Thank you for referring to the size charts presented on each product page for details.

If none of all these sizes fit

Then, you can opt for a custom-made size: please contact us for a quote. (Note that in this case, our automatic size selection system will indicate that there is no corresponding size.)

The models JOEX/JNEX, JOJ, JSY, JZ and JSL are only available as "standard" sizes, extended or customized sizes do not exist .

Size choice

These are the size charts for the deluxe models. For the "standard" models, featuring only a small size choice based on a different logic, thank you for referring to the relevant product page.

Unisex Sizes - Standard
Unisex Sizes - Large
Unisex Sizes - Slim
Women's Fit
  • Measurements of arms and legs are valid if +/- 2 cm.
  • Measurements of waist size and chest circumference are valid if +/- 3 cm.
    * Very thin practitioners can consider a negative gap of 10 cm as valid. E.g. A waist size of 85 cm validates from 75 to 88 cm.
  • Sizes displayed in red are subject to extra charges.
  • If you are in-between two sizes, the larger size corresponds to a wider fit and the smaller one to a tighter fit.
  • Do not take shrinkage into consideration. The sizes are calculated to fit your body shape after laundering.
