Half Sumo Shinobi Dogi Gi
The word Shinobi appears in the written record as far back as the late 8th century in poems in the Man'yōshū. It means "to hide" or “to forbear". Superhuman or supernatural powers were often associated with the Shinobi ( better known by westerners as Ninja ). Some legends include flight, invisibility, shape shifting, the ability to "split" into multiple bodies, the summoning of animals, and control over the five classical elements. These fabulous notions have stemmed from popular imagination regarding the ninja's mysterious status, as well as romantic ideas found in later Japanese art of the Edo period.
Half Sumo have sourced some of the best and most unique fabrics to make this GI as sharp looking as the edge of a katana.
A 425gsm star weave top is coupled with lightweight reinforced diamond weave rip stop pants - When we say these are the most comfortable and durable tops & bottoms you'll ever own, we really mean it.
The internal GI jacket is sublimated with our unique artwork, while a hand printed haiku poem on the inside of the jacket because we truly are Martial Artists.
Various high definition patches, embroideries and prints decorate the outer part of the jacket and pants.
Also included is a 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 zip pocket on the front, allows for your valuables to be stored without mixing with sweaty gear etc. This bag is bag with thicker Cordura Nylon, and it's not your run of the mill GI bag.
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.
