Traditional karate like the heavier Yamasaki 14oz karate uniform 100% cotton brushed canvas material as they are more durable and keep their shape better whereas some more modern day karate people prefer the medium weight high performance 10oz Yamasaki Pro karate uniforms.
Whether or not karate uniforms are lightweight, medium weight or heavyweight it is most important the uniform is not tight fitting in any area as that will restrict your movements and impede your performance.
The karate jackets must be loose and the karate pants must be worn up high around the waist so the karate belt can help to hold the pants in place and most importantly the extra panel sewn into the crutch area of the karate pants only works to allow high kicks if the pants are worn up high enough.
Karate uniforms with the cross over jacket top are also used by many other martial arts schools apart from karate because the karate uniforms not only look good, they are both very practical and economical and there is always a good reliable supply of karate uniforms available.
