I ordered a Bokken and knife. Everything came in a timely manner...actually, quicker than I had anticipated. The packaging was very secure and everything arrived safely. The quality and beauty are indescribable. My son\'s Sensei thought the craftsmanship was beautiful and perfectly weighted and FAST! Thank you!

I ordered my Hakama from Budostuff for the first time. It arrived almost 4 weeks later, in a wonderful parcel. It is just as I ordered it, in great quality and the feeling, wearing it in the dojo, is really something else! My sensei also admired it and ordered himself one too! Thanks for the communication also and the fine embroidery.

I ordered and received a tanto in good order and condition. Thanks very much for the quick turnaround. Using this blade allows me to seriously focus on my practice of tanto idori.

i thought it only fair to leave a note saying that the customer service at budostuff was excellent, something even remotely close in England would be more than welcome,also the quality of the hakama i ordered was very good, strong enough to last years due to weight of the cotton. The only thing thats a bit of a surprise and no fault of budostuff who do advise of the possibility, is customs costs on entry into England, this extra cost came in at 24 pounds, not much but enough for a suprise. my hakama came though really quickly, within 10 days of order. My thanks go out to Mareck and all staff at budostuff.

Dear Marek, Thanks for your prompt answers to all of my questions! All of the buki I ordered arrived in perfect condition and are very beautiful. I have only had a chance to use them a little bit in class but they seem to be very durable and my more experienced classmates are asking where I got them from and admiring them, so I am recommending you very highly to anyone looking for their own buki. Sincerely, Bruce

Budostuff is the best. My order, hakama and gi, was delivered in last week. Everyone in my dojo asked where I bought them because of their excellent fit, quality of material and workmanship. The other point, which makes BudoStuff is the best, is the excellent customer service. All of my questions replied quickly (no more than one day). I would like to thank you Marec. And I strongly recommend Budostuff to everyone.

I ordered a "Takemusu Aiki" scroll at Budostuff - it was delivered in less than two weeks after ordering. I am very satisfied with Budostuff`s service. They kept in touch with me until I told them to have the scroll received. And also the scroll is very beautiful - it is not hand painted, but never the less it`s prety nice =)

I got myself an Aikido Dogi from Budostuff. Budosstuff has a very friendly attitude to its customers making me feel, being an international customer, completely at ease with the whole transaction. The Gi is of exceptional quality. I will surely recommend Budostuff to a lot more Indian practioners who find it very difficult to find quality equipment locally.

I'm very pleased with service provided an item supplied by Budostuff. I purchased IAITO from Budostuff and I'm very satisfied with the quality of IAITO. The IAITO has good balance (compare with other IAITO I used to use for the IAIDO training) and good quality of craftsmanship. The Budostuff is also very responsive and helpful to their customer. I recommend Budostuff to my partners when they need to purchase any stuff for their AIKIDO and IAIDO training.


2007-04-10 20:58:22

My compliments to the BudoStuff team for their excellent customer service. From day one they have been extremelly helpfull and considerate in fullfilling the order. The hakama purchashed is of the best quality material and no need to mention the delivery time!! Arrivend in one week only... I reccommend Budostuff to everyone! Thanks!

Mario Mavris

2007-02-01 11:43:10

Excellent communication and service. The hakama received was of excellent quality and I am very pleased with the service provided. I will be recommending you to all my aikido training partners when they are requiring their hakamas.

It's a very pleasure to me to thanks Budostuff for all the steps starting from my order, shipment and delivery assistance. All the materials recevived are of the best quality and fully covering my expectation. The follow-up has been done perfectly. I will be glad to purchase something else at the soonest.

I was amazed by the fast shipping, especially considering from Japan to South Africa. The friendly correspondence from the Budostuff-team made it a lot easier to order and let them know exactly what I wanted. And the quality of their products you won't get elsewhere. For any aikidoka, no other website is needed.

I was very impressed with the quality of the bokken, jo, and tanto I purchased from budostuff, as was my Sensei. They are very light and strong. The furoshiki was a lovely bonus surprise as well. In addition, Budostuff's email customer service is excellent! I will reccommend Budostuff to my own students an colleagues! Thanks!

Excellent website. Excellent corrospondence/communication between Budostuff and the customer. You can tell they want to please and take customer service seriously, and they do. Very pleased with the 'stuff': quality through and through. Aikido and equipment in true harmony. No need to go elsewhere. Well done!

I was satisfied once again with your product, but I have a suggestion. The strings on the hakama are now twice as wide as they were when I ordered one three years ago. I think they are too wide in their current form. I recommend that they be narrower like they used to be. Other than that, it's a great hakama.

Mike Siciliano

2006-05-21 19:01:18

Budostuff is Fantastic !! Marek is very Helpfull !! I have bought an Aikido Gi, 2 shiroobi, a full set of Aikido buki and an Iwama Ryu Boken over the past 3 years. the quality is the best !! the shipping is fast !! the service and comunication with Marek is fast and friendly. will buy more stuff from them and reccomend budostuff to any one who does Aikido.

I make my first order last month.It's useless to say that i am excited with the quality, service, and delivery time, because those things are predetermined. The things i received are top of the class, and i say that having allready a 25 year martial arts backround behind me.The most important thing is that all the Budostuff personnel, put their Hearts behind their job. That's why i don't consider myself just a customer but also a happy friend.


2004-12-30 21:32:03

Just received my Gi and Obi,and i am very pleased with the quality and service. 1st class. Confirmation of order was as promised backed up with an e-mail. Will be shopping with you again,and would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone. The free gifts were very much appreciated as well. Best Regards to everyone at Budostuff.

I was extremely impressed with quality and workmanship, and have recommended your company to fellow martial artists. I would also like to thank you for your helpful e-mails; the standard of your customer service has been exceptional. Thanks again, and I look forward to ordering more items with you in the future.

Catherine Hoskin

2004-01-27 23:54:04

My Gi and Hakama were shipped VERY quickly (I thought it was going to take a lot longer than 10 days for my items since they all had custom embroidery)!!! They all fit perfectly and if anyone asks where I got my gi or hakama... I'm gonna send them straight to you! The quality of the items is unmatched. I can't believe how nice the Gi, obi, and hakama are! Thanks for the great service and I will definitely be ordering more from you in the future!

2004-01-26 03:57:45

The hakamas are outstanding. When I opened the package for your hakama I was amazed at how much thicker and nicer the material was. The koshiita was more flexible and elastic than my last one. I was really surprised when I saw the obi strings. They were stitched like my black belt and as a result they were stronger and resisted creasing. The openings in the side were also larger and made it sit nicer. The entire thing feels great and feels made just for me because it is. After seeing your product hands on I can now say that I won\'t bother ever ordering from another company. I think this product is wonderful and I will recommend it to everybody in the dojo.
