Shoto means “lights out” and it’s a tribute to being choked out when rolling. The gi incorporates the theme “dark Japan” with a “Death Poem” inside the jacket next to a Red Spider Lilly flower representing the afterlife.

The fabric is pre-shrunk and will have minimal shrinkage if washed on cold water and line dried in the shade. You can adjust the overall size up to 4% by doing a controlled shrink. Wash it in warm water and dry it gradually from line dry, warm and hot in the machine settings, until it shrinks to your desired fit.
