Cotton Karate Uniforms
The most popular type of martial arts uniform would have to be the basic karate uniform or karate gi. It's used by karate schools and by many Taekwondo schools that prefer the karate cross over jacket to the v-neck Taekwondo uniform.
The most basic karate uniform is the poly/cotton fabric version. These are long-lasting and economically priced. The fabric is strong and easy to care for so they are a great choice for anyone starting martial arts and looking for a karate uniform.
If you live in a hot climate, feel the heat or have sensitive skin, a better choice is the all cotton karate uniform. Cotton is a natural fibre so it 'breathes', the fabric soaks up the perspiration and you feel cooler than when wearing a poly cotton karate uniform. It's also soft and super comfortable against the skin.
Cotton karate uniforms are best washed in cold water and dried in the open air to avoid shrinkage. The natural fabric wrinkles more than the poly cotton fabric martial art uniforms so looks better when ironed. It's well worth that small effort to feel comfortable when training.
