Washing Instructions

1) Wash the Gi by itself, don't mix it with other articles.
2) About 40°C water.
3) Never use bleach.
4) Squeeze lightly.
5) Hang dry in the shade.
6) Don't 100% tumble dry: hang dry in the shade after 80% tumble dy.
7) Dry-cleaning is ok.
8) Hot steam iron with a damp cloth, if needed.

In Japan it is uncommon to wash the obi martial arts belt. However many of our international customers like to wash their belts.

We recommend hand washing (with hand soap) and hang drying in the shade.

Please note that regular washing will accelerate the belt's aging process and might cause it to shrink further than estimated. It will still be functional and last for many years though.

Please wipe the shin guard pad with a damp cloth.

The back of the shin guards, which is made of neoprene, can be washed with a special wet suit cleaner that prevents the neoprene from getting tight.

Never use detergents. Otherwise, you'll irreversibly damage the neoprene's qualities.

Leather gloves and gloves that contain leather parts should not be washed because the leather cannot be soaked in water.

What we recommend you do instead is wipe the surface clean with a wrung-dry cloth.
