ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

A gi adapted to your karate style?
There are many different styles of karate: The French federation includes 32 karate styles. With its short sleeves and bottoms and long jacket, your uniform has a traditional Japanese cut which highlights your technique, particularly during katas. With overstitching at the bottoms of the sleeves and hems of the bottoms and jacket, the uniform is more weighted: it feels more fluid and improves its aesthetics when you perform your techniques. Sold without belt
What is the gi made from?
To support you as you progress in karate, we've developed this 100% cotton uniform that is suitable both for combat techniques and advanced katas: With its 310g/m² (11 oz) grammage, heavier and more rigid, your uniform highlights the aesthetics and techniques of your katas and has a rigidity that adds an improved effect to your movements. The size of your uniform will stabilise after several washes.
The design of the 500 karate uniform
Whatever your style, we have an attractive, technical and well-suited gi: - The cut of the bottoms is designed for use with foot and shin guards - The jacket is nipped-in at the hips for an elegant look - The looseness of the jacket across the chest allows you to execute all your arm-based techniques without restriction - The slits on the sides of the jacket provide greater freedom of movement for all your leg movements, even in low positions.
Our design team talks about our new range of uniforms:
"We had quite a bit to rethink - we started from scratch. The priorities were reworking the fabrics and cut to create uniforms that were attractive but which still looked like karate uniforms. Most of all, we wanted to give karatekas what they needed." This was followed by dozens of prototypes and tests with around twenty karateka until we had a suitable, balanced gi that met the requirements of the international federation.
Enrique, Outshock product manager and black belt in karate, explains his version of the uniforms
"I hope that our gis will be attractive to even the most demanding of purists. We wanted to pin down what a gi meant to us, the importance of forms and techniques, on it needing to follow the movements of the body. The gi helps you keep to the forms and technique of your karate style."

    Sizing is small

    The gi is pure cotton so it will shrink, that is normal. After shrinking, it is too small I am 177cm. The size 180 jacket is too short.

    Brand's answer :

    Hi Chia Jie,

    Thank you for taking the time to write us a review on the 500 Adult Karate Uniform. We understand the difficulty that you are having with the product and we are always trying to improve in order to cater to our users better. Our products are designed in France and trust that we will do our best to feedback to the brand for better products in the future.

    Alternatively, you might want to consider the 100 Adult Karate Uniform. It is made out of a different composition (65% polyester, 35% cotton) however, it is not WKF Approved. We will definitely improve on the size grid to provide better options for our users.

    Feel free to leave a review on other Decathlon products and we hope to see you in our stores soon :)

    Sportingly,
    Fatin

    Bon produit mais pour...

    Bon produit mais pour être utilisé en compétition il faudrait qu'il soit un peu plus rigide pour la technique pour le bruit, la sensation
