Akashio (Japanese for “red tide”) is an excellent example of our dedication to a timeless and clean, classic style with a modern martial artist's touch.
The Akashio Limited Edition Gi features a 480 GSM Pearl Weave Plus jacket made from a single piece of fabric with ample reinforcements in all the major stress points. The lapel is made from a single piece of synthetic, heat-resistant, vulcanized rubber, which keeps the gi light and allows for faster drying which keeps your lapel fungus and bacteria free.
The 10 oz drill cotton pants are both durable and extremely comfortable and features gold contrast stitching giving this gi an incredibly sharp aesthetic. These are perfect for the daily grind as well as a tournament setting.
While the outside is somewhat understated, the inside is not. The Akashio Limited Edition Gi has a sublimated, Cool Max material lining which keeps you cooler than rash guard material.
Akashio’s entire lining is also a work of art that features Samurai in the throes of an intense battle on the beach with blood spilling into the ocean (red tide).
This is an elegant yet fierce uniform that encompasses tradition with the timeless, classic style of the modern martial artist.
