It has been a tough year for Tozando in terms of Aikido products, although Tozando has always had a very strong line up of Aikido Uniforms and Hakama, the last few years we have seen an increased demand and slower shipping times due to unfortunate accidents such as the “Fire accident” we had in our textile factory last year and other factors. We have constantly been trying to build up our stocks and increase the production at the Tozando factory in Iwate, even changing to a larger location to allow for more craftsmen to work more smoothly in late 2014. It has taken time, but we are glad to say that the stock status for popular products such as the Yomogi & Hourai Aikido Gi & Pants models, and the Tozando Polyester Aikido Hakama “UME” and Tozando Standard Tetron Aikido Hakama are now back in normal stock volumes, so orders for these products, and many more can ship the next business day! We would like to thank you for your patience and kindness during this time.
Lastly, our Tailors have also been working on something new which we hope you will all appreciate, since we know it’s something that many have requested from us many times in the past. Please look forwards to seeing an announcement about it very soon!
