In Japanese 'Kitsune' means fox and these animals are common in Japanese folklore. While sometimes the foxes trick others in the folktales where kitsune appear, many times the foxes are seen as faithful guardians, friends, lovers, and wives. The legends say that the more tails the kitsune has the more powerful it is. Nine tails being the most a fox may posses though. If this gi has supernatural powers then it certainly has the maximum level that a nine tailed fox would have. Hopefully you feel like you have a few extra tricks up your sleeve when you break this gi out on the mat.
