Product Description
    • Sharp black design
    • 7 oz. cotton/polyester blended fabric
    • Great for all students
    • Elastic waistband with drawstring

    These 7 oz. pants are ideal for anyone, at any age, starting out in martial arts. The slick black fabric is fitted with a traditional cut, and constructed of a highly durable polyester/cotton blend. At such a light weight, the pants are ideal for high intensity, hot training sessions... Especially during the summertime.

    A triangular crotch panel helps to keep you comfortable while practicing various high kicks. This triangular crotch panel also prevents the pants from botching up after throwing kicks, not to mention keeping the crotch seams free from unnecessary stress.

    The waistband is both elasticated and features an adjustable drawstring. Elastic waistbands are convenient in that they're easy to wear and the elastic helps to comfortably accommodate a wide range of waist sizes. The addition of a drawstring is perfect for the minor adjustments in securing your pants before training.

Very Nice

I thought these might be a bit too light to hold up, but they are perfect for our Jiu Jitsu rolling. Comfortable enough to lay around in too!

They're much easier to manage than the traditional 'string' pants.

Thanks KD!

Karate Joe

I bought these pants for outside hot weather wear. They are light weight and comfortable. I do take downs on the grass and these pants have not ripped. Excellent uniform, I would recomend these pants to anyone.

Very Comfortable but leave black residue

These pants are very lightweight (as the name suggests), comfortable, and give minimum to no restrictions in movement. The only issue with the pants is that they leave a fine black powder on ones legs for the first couple of uses (I hope).

They shed

First washing they "load up" the lint screen of the dryer (needed to wash the screen). I then wore them to class and they left black all over my legs (my legs were solid black). Washed them again (let them air dry this time) and they still left black all over my legs after the next class. These pants shed color and lint like crazy.

Too Much Black

Love the pants EXCEPT for the continued pilling and color release. I have washed the item over 5 times and always when I dry them, the lint trap is filled with black lint from the pants that is almost sand like. It is hard to get off the lint trap, and the dryer sheet in the dryer is always black also.

Lightweight Black Karate Pants

I order the same pants each time I need them. They last a long, long time. I ordered 6 pair this time because I wear them for much more than just training. I wear them for training, exercising, lounging, daily activities and even for work. My job is a very active one. I need to wear pants that allow me freedom of movement.

I will continue to buy them as long as they are available.

good quality but...

The pants were fine, but the material has a sheen to it and my son didn't like this. I washed them to see if the sheen would go away but it didn't so now I can't return them.
Same for the blue pair.

Tall and skinny

I'm 6'4" ~185 pounds, but my waist size is about 34". It seems I'm right between sizes. Which size would be recommended?

Also, do they have pockets at all?

Hi Oramac. I think the best bet would would be to go with the size 6 and rely on that elastic and drawstring to keep you snug. I do not believe there are any pockets on these pants.

My son is about 5'2" but only about 95lbs. and has a 28 in. waist. His martial arts pants are always too short. He is 13 so he is growing. Will the size 3 stay up? Is there a draw string in them?

Hi Debbie. The pants do contain a drawstring, so you shouldn't have any problems if you try a larger size.

This material sheds a black powdery dust even after several washings and weeks of wear.

5' 7" 190-195

I'm about 5' 7" 190-195 lbs. which pants should I buy?

You could definitely fit in a size 4; it would be a snug waist fit and good length. A size 5 would be more loose around the waist but would require a cuff or two of the pant legs.

They FIT...LOL

I ordered these as part of the uniform, and since the jacket did not fit, and I did not want to jeopardize my chances of returning them, I never tried them on... I wish I had, I probably could have returned the jackets and kept the pants. They are a lil' long (at 6'6" this is kind of funny...lol), but they are an AWESOME fit otherwise. Going to get them hemmed today!

Fantastic purchase

I purchased the lightweight student's karate set on sale for a costume investment (and a lifelong dream of pursuing martial arts should I ever get to partake of it). I was a little nervous buying online without having a physical specimen to try on, but my research paid off and I love this set. I only wore the jacket sans matching pants as part of a Batman-Begins-inspired ninja outfit for our TDKRises film premiere at work, and it was so comfortable and I got great compliments. I was worried I'd be too hot with all the layering, but I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable I was given I'd never worn something like this before. I haven't worn the pants outdoors yet, but I'm happy they're so roomy and flattering even just to wear at home for lounging around the house or if I get the urge to pretend I'm a ninja.
