Since 1956, Tokaido has been supplying karate practitioners in Japan and all over the world with the finest uniforms, belts and other karate products. Tokaido has become the world-wide standard to which other uniforms and belts are compared.
All Tokaido uniforms and belts are cut and sewn by hand, one by one as they are ordered, by artisans whose expertise has been acquired through long years of dedication to their art. The cotton company uses comes from a centuries old process that has been used for making the best cotton textiles of Japan. This is why a Tokaido uniform, if properly cared for, will actually improve with age and can be worn for as long as 10 years. In fact, Tokaido has had many customers tell that they have used their uniform for more than 20 years!
Many people say imitation is the highest form of flattery. Tokaido was the first company in the world to manufacture uniforms exclusively for karate practice, after the art arrived from Okinawa. Many have tried to imitate Tokaido's high-quality uniforms and belts over the years, only proving what several generations of karateka have known all along: Tokaido makes the best uniforms and belts for serious karateka.
