The true meaning of the Sakura cherry blossoms often eludes the inexperienced eye. Behind the carousel of colors, the beauty of the flowers after a long grey winter hide a deeper meaning about the transience of life itself. The flowers’ very short life span is a stark reminder to the samurai about the ephemeral nature of his/her life as well. There is beauty, but the life alongside a blade can also be a short one. 

When creating our newest competition Gi we chose a very light 375gsm Star Weave top coupled with a lightweight modern 10oz rip stop pant.

The Star Weave is one of our favorite alternative weaves to the omnipresent Pearl Weave that is dominating the market nowadays. 375gsm makes it light enough for the summer months, yet quite resistant for month after month of heavy training.

The 10oz ripstop fabric is also used to reinforce the jacket’s collar, making it both sturdy, and very smooth while keeping the overall weight of the GI low enough to beat also the toughest weigh-in scales.

Timeless and tireless effort has been spent to assure the perfect everyday fit, comfort enough to not impede any range of motion, snug enough to avoid those pesky opponent’s grips.

The internal GI jacket is sublimated with our unique Half Sumo Irezumi style artwork, the beauty of the sakura flowers is juxtaposed to intricate fighting scenes. Beauty and death, dancing together until the end of time. 

Various high definition patches, embroideries and prints decorate the outer part of the jacket and pants. Discover also a unique Kobayashi Issa poem printed on the inside of the jacket. 

We have also included an high quality Gi bag, fully sublimated with Half Sumo's unique detailed hand drawings. This bag is fully machine washable so you can just throw it in the wash along with the GI, and have a fresh clean bag after every roll! The unique cilindrical shape of the bag makes it a great day backpack either you chose to use it to carry your GI or any other item/gear. 

The GI fits like a modern tapered GI - It is pre-shrunk, but please allow for an additional 3% to 4% natural fabric shrinkage after the first few washes.

This listing is for the Women’s fit.
