The Ippon is the signature suit of Essimo, it is truly a fantastic Judogi that can hold its own with any other brand. 930 gram double weave, (which is the maximum weight of material allowed by the IJF rules) this competition quality kit is available in bleached white or blue.
On the inside of the kit, the cotton fabric is brush finished to give a soft comfortable feel against the skin. The back of the jacket has a 3cm back plate or joint running from the collar to the waist, this is in keeping with the trend in quality kits to reduce the amount of grip offered to an opponent when taking a deep back grip.
The skirt is a double weave diamond pattern Judo material. With an enormous amount of reinforcement at the “V” section on the side skirt.
The Ippon is available in half sizes as well as full sizes, and there is also a 'slim fit' option. The sleeves are within regulations for distance between wrist and cuff but are not over baggy it could be said they are perfect and just on the limit for the rules.
On the left shoulder the Essimo logo is embroidered in to the jacket in black thread with the distinctive “i” highlighted in red.
The skirt of the jacket is not to long, most contest player like a shorter bottom half of the jacket. The trousers are double reinforced right throughout the front from, the mid thigh section through to the ankle. They are a comfortable cut and are tailored in from the thigh to the ankle ensuring that there is no spare or baggy cloth around the leg, most other Judo trousers are a parallel cut and make for excess material on the leg.

Essimo Ippon Adult Judo Suit
Almost all suits are made of 100% cotton and will therefore shrink after washing. We therefore advise you to add 5 cm to your height and then order the size that best suits this. For children's suits we recommend adding 10 cm to the height because children grow out of their suits quickly. For the IJF GOLD competition suits, the body length corresponds to the size of the suit to be ordered.
