A personal message from the founder:

Hi,

It's Jesse here.

(from KARATEbyJesse.com )

Today I'm happy to announce that my top-secret Karate gi (uniform) project is finally launched!

After nearly 2 years of meticulous research and development, meeting Karate masters and champions all over the world, I am happy to tell you that the final prototype of my gi is done.

And today is YOUR chance to get one!

You see... there are many problems with regular Karate uniforms today.

They either...

  •  Don't fit well,
  •  Feel too heavy/light,
  •  Can't be easily washed or ironed,
  •  Are too low quality,
  •  ... or just look bad!

But, unless you've tried several brands, you might not realize this.

(In fact, you might be wearing a bad gi right now - without even knowing it!)

And this, my friend, is a huge mistake.

Because when you look good and feel good - you do good.

Get it?

That's why I created Seishin - after trying almost every Karate gi brand on the planet (but never being satisfied with what I got). Some of them even cost $377 or more... for a single uniform! Crazy.

I learned the hard way that all gi are NOT created equal.

So check this out...

Seishin: The People's Gi

Seishin, which literally means "Spirit" in Japanese, was founded by me with one simple motto in mind: To combine the wisdom/expertise of the Japanese tradition, with the modern vision/science of the West.

"Eastern wisdom - Western vision."

How?

Through harnessing the power, passion and insight of regular people.

Like you and me.

See, almost every Karate gi on the market today is being made by a faceless corporation that spits out tons of "Pakistani pajamas" (gi) daily, without any concern for the wants or needs of the enthusiastic Karate practitioner who is supposed to cherish the gi for many years - with blood sweat and tears.

Like you and me.

That's I-N-S-A-N-E!

And that's exactly why I decided to call my own gi "Seishin".

Because in the end, Seishin is what connects us all.

The Spirit.

Why I Need Your Help Now

I'm not made of money.

But money is exactly what I need to start the production of this Seishin gi.

So, right now, I'm giving you an invitation:

You can be a virtual co-creator of Seishin with me - through buying a gi.

Or two.

Or ten.

(And if you don't need a gi, there are other ways to support me!)

Look at the right side of this page to see how YOU can be a part.

If you read my blog , you probably know that I spend all my days creating, collecting and sharing valuable information about Karate with you. And believe me, although people tell me my work is highly valued, I happily do it for free.

But a Karate uniform is different.

It's not made up of virtual bytes or untangible thoughts. It's made by real people, with real hands, in real factories, with real families to feed, with real material. And with realness comes a price.

That's why I can't create Seishin alone alone.

I need you.

Because I trust you.

So please trust me to make this gi right for you.

Watch the video (top of this page) to see exactly what I mean, and scroll up, then click the next tab to see real images of the actual gi. I took them myself.

Oh, One More Thing...

I could use big fancy marketing words like "Nano Technology Performance" or "Clima Cool Science".

But I'm not a car salesman.

And you're not a sucker.

I'm just a regular Karate Nerd™ who got tired of wearing expensive, crappy, ugly, weird, sloppy, sweaty gi - made by some faceless corporation without any connection to the real Karate spirit.

And you're a passionate Karate practitioner.

Just like me.

You've now spent time, commitment and effort on reading this far. Get your reward by completing the final step and support the project.


Help me make Seishin gi a reality.

"The People's Gi" is here, folks.

You don't wanna miss this...
