Ai symbol Re: Tozando Dogi

Tozando is having a sale through August-great prices, even with shipping, on their gi, hakama, jo and bokken.
I visited them personally in January. If you want to see what the place looks like (it is small, but three floors)...

look in folder "10.1 Tozando Kyoto"

I handled their gi and they are indeed wonderful. I positively lust for their handstiched gi set. Will have to wait until I finish grad school I suppose.

Our dojo buys all our jo and bokken from Tozando as they are the same superior solid white oak that Saito Sensei and Iwama always used. I still my originals from circa 1979...
