Martial Arts Pants
Martial Arts Pants A comfortable well-fitting pair of pants is vital for any style of martial art training. Comfort, fit and suitability are the key things to consider when choosing them to guarantee you can train well. Although all martial arts pants look the same they can vary a lot depending on the fabric they are made in, the weight of the fabric and the cut or styling of the pants. Different cuts suit different body types. That is why its a good idea to try them on before you buy if possible. If not make sure you buy from a company that allows you to exchange. Our website can offer the help you may need when choosing the most appropriate martial arts pants. https://pacificsports.com.au/ On the website, you will find a range of different types of martial arts pants including; • Kickboxing shorts – Pants • Karate gi pants • Taekwondo uniform pants • MMA shorts Kickboxing shorts – Pants Kickboxing shorts or long pants are designed to be loose fitting around the legs allowing room for high kicks and to stretch comfortably. The waist is very secure with a wide elasticated area and an inner drawstring as they need to be tight enough to stay in place through the toughest training sessions. These martial arts pants are stylish and comfy which can give a feeling of confidence and good self-image whilst wearing them. Karate Gi Pants A karate uniform is also known as a Karate gi, so karate uniform pants are also known as gi pants. There are a couple of components to think about before buying a pair. Firstly, the gi pants should be full-length from the waist to the ankles. The material that they are made may be a blend of polyester and cotton – or 100% cotton or heavy cotton canvas. If all cotton there may be a potential to shrink, so it is best to buy pre-shrunk pants if possible. You may find there is still some shrinkage, but it will be slight. No martial arts pants should be uncomfortably tight fitting, nor should they be extremely loose. Another thing to bear in mind is that gi pants are not a fashion item, they are for hard training, so they fit on the natural waistline where they can be fastened securely, not on the hips. Martial arts pants should be able to slide over the thighs to allow for stretching and high kicking. If they are a tight fit around your thighs they will restrict your training. Taekwondo Uniform pants Taekwondo uniform pants are very similar in style to karate uniform pants. It is really important to get a size that fits perfectly due to the fact that a lot of the movements include jumps, twists and turns. If the pants are too tight it will create a considerable strain on the material giving the potential of ripping to the pants and embarrassment to the student. MMA Rash Guards – Shorts MMA shorts, are a very specific type of shorts and most other types of sports shorts are not designed to take the amount of stretch and flexibility required to perform well. Make sure you choose a design without laces or metal tags or zips. MMA shorts are designed to be straight-fitting, not baggy, stretchy to move with you, soft and comfortable against the skin and extremely durable. Why should you always have a spare pair of pants? Martial sports require a lot flexibility and fast movement and while martial arts pants are designed to comply with that kind of training, there is always the potential for an accident. Seams can rip or fabric can be torn. So while they are designed to last a long time, it’s a good idea to always have a backup pair of martial arts pants for emergencies. The other thing to remember for kids wearing traditional martial arts uniform pants is that you can purchase separate pants. So if your child has a growth spurt, his jacket still fits well but the legs in his martial arts pants have become too short – it is possible to buy a new pair of pants without the expense of a complete new gi.
