For Sale: Books, Bujin Gi, SDK Bokken

Hi all,

I'm moving and I've got to give up a lot of my stuff, and I want all of it to go to good homes. I've got a lot of books (including some rare ones), a Kim Taylor bokken, and some Bujin Dogi Jackets for sale.

I'll calculate shipping for your order based on weight and how far it's going. If you want to find out how much shipping will be, send me an email with the items you're interested in and your zip code. I'll be happy to combine items to make shipping as cheap as possible.

If you want any more information about any of the items, let me know. You can PM me or email me at sarahf321@aol.com

I accept paypal.

Also if you order 5 or more books, I'll throw in a surprise bonus book for free.

Thanks!
Sarah

Bokken
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 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. They've been worn only a couple times, and are still in really great shape.

    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'm selling them for $40 for the 12 oz. and $35 for the 8.5 oz.

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.

    12oz:

Hi, Yuji! Everything from this posting was sold off a couple of years ago except for the Kobayashi VHS tape (mostly, I imagine, because of its format). I know I've seen the Stanley Pranin book on amazon before, so you can try there. Good luck!
