Are you or your child starting karate but are having trouble choosing a uniform? Let us help you: Follow our guide!
There are two criteria to consider when choosing a karate uniform: height and skill level.
Uniforms are unisex and are designed with a single model.
The height of the karateka determines the uniform size.
For a child: sizes range from 100 cm to 150 cm.
For an adult: sizes range from 160 cm to 200 cm.
Because karate is a striking sport, the uniform fabric needs to be light enough for good freedom of movement.
We recommend the following fabric weights:
For novice children for training: a supple and lightweight woven fabric of 190 g/sqm.
For children competing: a sturdier ribbed fabric with a weight of 240 g/sqm.
For novice adults for training: a supple and lightweight ribbed fabric of 240 g/sqm.
For adults competing: a thick and durable weight of 370 g/sqm or higher.
