How to find the right karate suit
The term "Gi" for a karate suit originally comes from the Japanese term "Keikogi", which is the Japanese expression for tracksuit. The Japanese name for the training suit specifically for karate is dogi. This was then changed, especially in European countries according to the martial arts, into e.g. B. Karate- suit and thus in the short form suit. This usually consists of a jacket (Uwagi), trousers (Zubon) and a belt (Obi). The cuts and fabrics vary depending on the discipline.
As a rule, fabrics made of cotton are used, but because of the lighter nature there are also suits made of blended fabrics.
Karate suits for kata are usually made of 100% cotton or a cotton blend. Beginner suits are often made from a blend of cotton and polyester. Blended fabrics are a bit easier to look after. These are easier to iron or do not need to be ironed.
Karate suits for kumite often have modern polyester fabrics. These only need to be hung up after washing. Ironing is usually not necessary.
Many kumite karate suits also have Climacool inserts. These are mesh fabrics and are typically found on the back of the jacket and the seat of the pants. The air between the skin and the suit circulates better through the mesh inserts and the athlete has better cooling during the sport.
The material is given in ounces per square meter of fabric. An ounce (OZ) is approximately 28.3 grams per square meter. Many karate suit models differ in the following fabric qualities:
8 ounces = approx. 227 grams / m²
12 ounces = approx. 340 grams / m²
14 ounces = approx. 397 grams / m²
16 ounces = approx. 453 grams / m²
