Customer Question of the Karate Uniform

Size suggestion?

I am 6' and 273 pounds. I am a beginner and I ordered the Elite Judo uniform in a size 7 and it is too big. After seeing the uniform I have decided it is too heavy anyway for a beginner so I am going to return it and try this one. I have also tried the lightweight beginner uniform and it is too thin and almost see through. It seems this uniform is the best choice for me. Any size suggestions for me? Thank You!

Hey wrecksrme, I think we can get you straightened away! First question - what style of martial art are you studying? If it is judo, as your first uniform selection would suggest, you might not want to switch over to a karate uniform. The material used in karate uniforms is not as optimally suited to the grabbing and pulling done repetitively in judo. Also karate uniforms have tie tabs on the inside which you don't want for a predominantly throwing art.

The Elite Judo gi is a double weave style, so since that was a bit too heavy I recommend dropping down to the single weave here: un-ju-14. This is a great middle ground between the lightweight beginner uniform and a thick elite gi.

If the size 7 was too big I would drop down a size to 6 and then expect a little shrinking when you put it through the wash. Hot water, hang dry.
