UPDATE: For Sale: Books, Bujin Gi, SDK Bokken

Hi guys!

I've still got some items left. I've also updated with pictures of the Bujin Gi, and combined item pricing.

Bujin Design Women's Dogi Jacket
  • I have two Women's cut, size Large keiko gi jackets from Bujin Design. They are cut specifically to fit women, with breast darts, a narrower waist, and wider hips. They have ties at the hips to hold the gi closed, and I have. found this style has always stayed closed much better than the men's cut gi, and are much less bulky and more comfortable.

    One is the 12 oz. weight, and the other is 8.5 oz. weight. I have 7 of these gi total (I don't wear any other kind) and these two just never made it into my regular cycle of gi, so they've only been worn and washed one or two times. I've attached a few pictures of the gi.

    I see that Bujin Design is closed right now, but these used to sell for $82 for 12 oz. and $72 for 8.5 oz. I don't know anyone else who made such high quality women's cut gi.

    I'm selling the 12 oz. for $40 and the 8.5 oz for $35. I'll take $65 for both.
