The exciting jumps, kicks, twists, and turns of Taekwondo training put a considerable strain on your Taekwondo uniform. That’s why it is important that you get a uniform that fits you well, feels comfortable and allows you to move freely, without restriction.
Regardless of your grade level, if you are a new beginner or an experienced instructor the fit and feel of your taekwondo uniform are important.
Most Taekwondo practitioners wear a white Some include black edging around the V and others may be printed with their organization’s name and logo. But generally, the style is the same, a V neck uniform that fastens with ties, a pair of long pants with an elasticated waist and an inner drawstring and a belt to hold it all in place and denote your current grade of training.
Before purchasing a Taekwondo uniform it is a good idea to check with your instructor and make sure you buy the right style for your school as some school insist on students wearing a taekwondo uniform only available through their school.
As well as choosing the right type of Taekwondo uniform you’ ll want to choose the correct weight of the fabric. Uniform fabric that is a heavier weight tends to be crisper and more durable, but they will weigh more so you will feel hotter and heavier, this can be restricting. Lighter weight fabric is more suited to beginners and children. Heavier fabrics are more suited to senior grade practitioners and instructors. Weight ranges are generally thought of in three categories:
Lightweight: 5 to 6 oz
Medium weight: 7 to 9 oz
Heavyweight: 10 oz and above
Taekwondo Uniform Sizing
A taekwondo uniform is made up of three pieces: pants, jacket, and belt. After the first white belt, all other colored belts are awarded to students through their gradings. You may be able to purchase your colored belt through your school – or may need to purchase yourself via an online store such as Pacific Sports.
The jacket and pants of a Taekwondo uniform are the same sizes. So if you are not a regular weight for height build you should by a Taekwondo uniform that fits your largest measurement and alters it to fit. Do not try to make do with a Taekwondo uniform that is too small, you will feel uncomfortable and be unable to train to your best. It is important that the pants have plenty of room for bending and stretching.
Looking neat and clean is an expectation of training when you are learning Taekwondo. So your Taekwondo uniform should be washed after every lesson. Most are made in a polyester and cotton fabric so very easy to care for…thrown in the washing machine, a quick-dry in the fresh air when possible and a light iron.
