1. 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 3' 3'' to 4' 11''.
For an adult: sizes range from 5' 3'' to 6' 7'' 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 flexible and lightweight woven fabric of 0.6 oz/sqft
For children competing: a sturdier ribbed fabric with a weight of 0.6 oz/sqft
For novice adults for training: a flexible and lightweight ribbed fabric of 0.6 oz/sqft
For adults competing: a thick and durable weight of 1.2 oz/sqft or higher.
