Black Tai Chi Uniform for sale at Enso Martial Arts Shop is a great choice for doing your Tai Chi practice in. They are made from a tough, but very comfortable, breathable fabric, with a very nautral feel. They are also made with Tai Chi practice in mind, so you won’t get any restriction of movement. The black Tai Chi uniform comes complete with trousers with cuffed bottoms, very similar to the Kung Fu trousers we sell separately at Enso Martial Arts.
The top comes with a white inside collar and white inside cuffs, which can be turned out if you wish. The fastener down the front is in the mandarin style with cotton cord tied into a knot, which fastens very effectively. The trousers have elasticated cuffs at the bottom, which stops any material flapping around your ankle and the waist is elasticated and has a drawstring for a comfortable but secure fit. The trousers, like all good martial arts trousers, has an extra gusset en in allowing you full movement and doesn't restrict you.
Due to cotton shortages over the past decade or so, these are now made from 65%polyester and 35% cotton mix, some batches still come to us in 100% cotton but they are much harder to source these days so nearly all our stock is mixed material now. It still gives a very comfortable natural feel and, to be honest, most people don't notice the change. The added benefit of the polyester is that they don't shrink anywhere near as much as they used to when they were 100% cotton.
“Like all cotton clothing these days, most in not pre-shrunk and this black Tai Chi uniform is no exception. Keep these on a very cool wash and it shouldn’t shrink too much. If you want it a little smaller one warm wash can do the trick.”
Doug Swift – Owner of Enso Martial Arts Shop
The Black Tai Chi Uniform sizes are based on height of the person. For instance a 3/160 is based on someone who is 160cm in height. However, because shrinkage during a warm wash, it doesn’t hurt to go a size bigger.

First can I say that the quality of service and support was excellent thanks Doug. The uniform was ordered and arrived the following day as promised. I inspected the uniform and in particular the stitching which was excellent and once I tried it on I can only say it will fit perfectly once washed. You do need a size bigger than you might think but the guys can help you with your size. Thanks for the advice and speedy service.
