The 200 karate gi is made from polyester / cotton fabric so that it shrinks as little as possible when washed and dries faster than 100% cotton models.
Karate gis are strengthened at the hem on the jacket and trousers.
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR KARATE GI
- A karate novice should choose a soft and lightweight gi that is also durable thanks to its ribbed knit.
- An advanced karateka who practises competitive kata (simulated combat without an opponent) should choose a very durable gi with a thicker, "snappy" fabric.
- Advanced karateka doing fights (kumite) should choose a lighter gi that helps them perform all of their moves.
WHAT SIZE SHOULD YOU CHOOSE?
The 200 karate gi is available in sizes from 110 to 150 cm.
We recommend choosing a gi that is 5 cm to 10 cm bigger than your child. For example, if your child is 133 cm, chose a 140 cm uniform.
The uniform should be left out to air after each use. Regular washing will help keep your uniform white. Use cold water for the first few washes. After that, wash at no more warmer 30°C.
Air dry. Do not tumble dry.
THE BENEFITS OF KARATE
Karate develops your concentration and helps channel your energy. The different karate techniques use all of the body's muscles. Karate improves balance, endurance and coordination.
It is recommended that you wear a helmet and mouth guard.
