In February 2014, Hitoshi Sugai, two-times World Judo Champion from Japan, set up a judo clothing sales company with the aim of bringing judo to the world.
At Defier, we will use our own experiences to bring judo to everyone globally, in accordance with current trends and needs. Our commitment is to do our very best to make judo gi and accessories more appealing by carefully choosing specific threads, stitching, weaves and colourways.
In August 2019, Defier Co., Ltd held its pre-opening for their store, ‘Atelier Saburau’, in Sapporo, Hokkaido. They began by focussing on stocking contemporary versions of Japanese traditional craft, such as aizome (indigo-dyed products), sashiko and boro, along with the opportunity for customers to order judo gi/kimono.
Our international online store is scheduled to open in October, 2019.
