Christmas gift

My mom wanted to get me a karate gi as a Christmas present. I'm 6', 38" waist, 240 lbs (and slowly losing weight). I'm in Kokondo karate/Jukido and want to be even more involved with the throws, takedowns, grappling without concern of my gi getting torn. When I wash, I use cold/cold (extremely rarely use hot water) wash and tumble dry low. Would the Fuji size 6 be best for me or next size up?

I would actually fit in a size 5, but to play it safe (broad shoulders, etc) you can bump up to the 6. This will also give you a little buffer in terms of shrinking in the wash.

Fuji Heavyweight Gi

This is an excellent gi. It did take a while to get used to the heavy weight, and it was hard to iron out all of the wrinkles when it was new. I've had mine for over a year, and it has broken in nicely. I like it so much that I bought another when it was time to retire my Kodomo.

Great Quality/Great Price

If you have Tokaido taste and an "el cheapo" budget then this gi is a good buy. I think Fuji makes good quality products at good prices. I wash it cold and air dry it. It is a size 7 and I am 6' 6" tall and 300lbs. "Twisted Steel and Sex Appeal" You will not be disappointed. Just remember this is a thick gi and needs to be cared for properly. Pull from the wash immediately and hand press then hang to dry.

A great size for you would be 6, although I'm honestly not sure if the pants would still touch the floor after washing. 7 would be baggy, but would be a safer choice for extra length.

A size 3 would work for your weight but I think you'd experience a little shortness in sleeves and pant legs, especially if you experience any shrinking in the wash. That being the case I would recommend the size 4.

Exellent.

Great buy overall. My last gi came a bit small and led it to constantly come untied. This pretty much solved all my problems. Bought a size larger, shrinked it in hot wash dry to my size. The material is very nice and sturdy, but not too restrictive. I would say the picture is a bit misleading, the gi came in looking much better(probably just the difference of it being worn vs being alone).

Would recommend this.

Hello. I am 5'5" and 170 lbs. What sizes should I order if I want to wash in warm/hot water and tumble dry? It looks like a size 3 would work for me from the chart, but I'm concerned about shrinkage if I sometimes wanted to wash warm and use the dryer.

I think you should go with the 5 craig. A 4 would be ok weight-wise, but would wind up a little short on you. If a 4 shrank on you I think it would be unusable.

Great gi for the price. Washes well, shrinkage is minimal since I never put my gi in the dryer and it is fairly soft and flexible so I do nor feel like it is standing up by itself. Ordered 2 more.

So Far So Good

I bought this gi not too long ago and I am very satisfied with this purchase! The gi looks very nice and resistant. Quite stiff at the beginning although it does the work very well during the training. It has a nice cut and an awesome sound (snap)! I washed it few times in cold water and it didn't shrink. The delivery was pretty fast.

At first I think the size 6 would be a bit long, but then with strategic shrinking in the wash it will probably tighten up to where you want it. I think this is a workable plan.

Superb for the Price

The quality of this Gi really shocked me considering how much it cost. The fabric is super heavy duty with strong, reinforced stitchwork. Overall, the feel is supple, yet snappy. I will be recommending this Gi to many, and will be ordering at least one more.

Sizing: I am 6'6" and 190 pounds. My inseam in 34". A size 6 fits great.

Worst Gi Ever!

this has to be the worst Gi i"ve ever owned. the fitment is poor, the quality is shoddy, and the design is very poor. in particular the stitching is poorly sewn and the way it's sewn on makes no sense. this is supposed to be a heavy weight gi yet, the first time someone grabbed me i heard stitches tear. after 8 months of use twice a week, the inner tie to the jacket fell off while it was still tied! the other big problem with this gi is that the pants wont stay up no matter how hard you try to tie them. I ended up having to have them modified just to get them to SOMEWHAT stay up. they are way too long as is the jacket, andof course grow in length as you train and begin to sweat. I am 6'4 260lbs. and use a size 6 yet this gi grows to cover my hands after training for a bit. this was a total waste of money. I am going to buy the KD house brand again instead of this garbage. my last Gi was a medium weight KD brand and it was great.

"Traditional Cut"

I am curious what the traditional cut for the pants would be. I am used to the gusseted double seam pants for taekwondo, and would be looking to use the pants from this uniform. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to find any WTF-certified v-neck heavyweight (14 oz.) TKD uniforms without the black trim.

The pants are indeed gusseted for high kicking, so you should not find it encumbering. The material may be a little stiffer than you are used to, but that's just a guess.

Excellent news about the gusset, and I'll have to try out the external drawstring. As for the extra stiffness, I am looking forward to a sturdier/more rigid dobok, particularly with our school beginning more hapkido. Also, your "snap" demonstration video above was great, and I look forward to "making some noise."

Do you know of any v-neck WTF-approved doboks in this weight/fabric?

Hi Tony. The gi is made primarily in Pakistan, but ships to you from our u.s. warehouses.

For your particular height and weight I think you would fit in a size 3. For your sister, I don't believe the sizes go quite small enough to accommodate her in this model. You may have to browse this kind: un-st-859 and shoot for the size 00.

brand name gi's

My husband owns a size 5 Pro force karate gi (which was loose); and after washing the gi, the karate gi shrunk and made it too fitted to where he couldn't bend anymore for stretches. I mention this because the suggestion is a size 4 for the fuji heavy weight gi (with him being 5'2"-190lbs.-41inches circumference). I basically would like to ensure that the size 4 suggested would not shrink to fit after washes before purchasing the fuji gi. Should I go with the size 5 or 6 instead? Considering it is a different brand name than the one he already has?

over the last 20 years i have tried and worn many different uniforms from super-light weight to 14 oz heavy weight and this is by far the most comfortable and resiliant ones i have worn. admittedly at fist it was stiff and hard to move in but that is to be expected with this type of gi, but after a few washes it loosened up and is VERY comfortable. As for being resiliant, i am a competitive breaker in the USBA and i wear it during training and competing with concrete and not even a scratch or tear yet.

As for your son, a size 4 right now is best but you could also bump up to a 5 and cuff the sleeves and pant legs.

Fuji Karategi Fit

I'm a martial artist of athletic build, 5' 10" in height. I'm used to the baggier fit of a judogi, but started to dislike the sizing. My problem is finding a karate gi of the size to reflect what I'm looking for; I want the shita (the bottom of the jacket) to come at least a quarter of the way down my thigh, and I also want the inseam of the zubon (the pants) to be as close to the form of my leg as possible (in other words, I don't want a sag when I'm in a low stance).

What size would resemble this the closest?

What you're describing seems more in tune with the european style cut rather than the traditional style. However, I think a size 5 would be your best fit, considering that this would give you some bagginess in the pants. If you don't mind a little shortness in sleeve and pant cuff, a size 4 might do the job.

Gi Performance

I just trained for my first time in this gi, yesterday night, and I have to say I'm impressed. The gi really responded well. It's a little difficult to get used to, when you've trained your whole career wearing a 10oz. gi, but it's a nice change.

I believe a size 4 is your best bet, especially when it comes to height and accommodating for shrinking.

A size 5 would be a touch on the short side, although a relatively good fit. Because of that, I might recommend you bump up to a size 6.

I am tossing up the idea of getting this gi for both me and my son... I am 5'6" and 135 and my son is 5'10" and 130... what sizes would you recommend?

For you I think a size 3 would be appropriate. Your son would probably be good in a size 4, although if you expect more growth I would definitely bump up to a size 5 for him.

Right Size?

I know I should be reading the chart before buying, but for other brands i am size #4 -- I am 5ft 6.5in tall and weight around 168lbs. I bought this uniform to start training on Aikido and TangSooDo next Tuesday, and the uniforms should be here by Tuesday. Now, I have three questions:

1) Do these uniforms shrink?
2) Is that the right size for me on this brand? It looks like it will be a little too large unless it shrink....
3) How can I avoid the odor from sweating? I bought two uniforms for 5 classes/week.

Hi skulltracer. Here are some answers:

1. Yes, this is brushed cotton so you will get some shrinking if you wash it in hot water and put it through the dryer.
2. A size 4 should be fine, especially with the ability to shrink it.
3. One of the best ways to avoid odor from sweating is to wear an undershirt and boxer briefs. This underlay of absorbent material will take care of most of the moisture, leaving your uniform less sweaty and dirty.

Also, do not pack your uniform in a bag, even when transporting it. You want to let it hang dry after every workout.

Is this available in a 2?

Product page shows size 2 as an option, but the size chart starts at 3. Is this available in a 2, and would that still be too big for me -- 5'1", 108 lbs., female.
Thanks!

Yes, size 2 is an option and it would actually be a great fit for you. If you get it and it still feels a touch large, you can strategically shrink it via hot wash and dry cycle.

Weight-wise I think a size 5 would be the best option. However, since he is 15 and may still do a little growing, you might want to go for the 6.

size?

Hi I'm 5'7 around 160-165 and I was wondering what size I should get, I normally get size 4 gis but sometimes the bottom of the jacket would be kinda short for my liking, and I ordered a size 5 once but turned out to be way too big so I was wondering what size i should get?

Yea it sounds like you are right in between sizes there. Perhaps you could get a size 5 and do a little shrinking via hot wash and spin dry?

What size Gi

I am female, 5'6.5" and 153 lbs. Medium frame. Would a size 3 or 4 suit me best. I bought a size 5 once and it was ridiculously too big. Need help finding the right size.

Also, how worried should I be about shrinkage?

Thanks!

I think a size 3 would be the best bet. Shrinkage can occur, which is why I recommend cold washing and hang dry.

uniform notes

going to throw this out there for sizing info. I'm 5 foot 11 and 245 lbs. The size 6 fits me perfectly with no need to cuff or hem the pants or jacket. Wash it in cold water take it right out and line dry. No shrinking issues with this. It irons out fine. For my tastes and uniform preferences, this is hands down the best uniform I have ever had. In fact, I am going to order 2 more of them.

I think a size 5 would suit you. Shrinking is a real possibility. You'll want to wash in cold or warm water and hang dry (don't spin dry).

I recommend getting a size #6 uniform and cuffing the pant legs and sleeves (it's a standard practice and won't get second glances).

Great Uniform

This has everything I look for in a uniform. Well made, strong and the fit is very nice. Just as good as uniforms costing twice as much. It is heavy at 14 oz. but I like that. This will make a great competition as well as an all round Gi. I am very pleased. It will shrink, but if you wash in cold water and air dry you will not have problems.

A size 6 would be appropriate now, and if you lose enough weight you could drop down to 5.
