THE SIZE 

 

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.

DURABILITY

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.
