This is one of the best heavyweight Karate Gi’s, let alone a Black Heavyweight Karate Gi, you will ever find. They are super soft, hard wearing, roomy, look great, hold their shape well, fantastically well made with triple stitched seams and in some places seven rows of stitching. The Gi bottoms come with the traditional drawstring tie.
Mainly used by Ninjutsu practitioners because they can take the punishment this style demands, but also by Karate and Traditional Ju Jitsu styles who used black gi’s. The Karate Jitsu guys will love these because of the thick canvas. They are perfect for kicking and punching in as they aren't too heavy but also durable enough for throwing, locking and grappling. This Black Gi is the standard for the majority of Ninjutsu clubs these days because of this versatility. So even though it is a Karate gi and made in that syle most martial artists using this gi are Ninjutsu practitioners.
Made from 100% cotton, which is quite rare theses days as most gi have moved over to a Polyester cottom mix to save costs, it hs a very natural and comfortable feel. I dare you to find a better black heavyweight Karate Gi for a similar price anywhere in the market.
“The black colour does fade overtime, a grey gi can look pretty cool but if you want a sharp black Gi just use a machine wash dye and it’ll return it to it’s original colour.”
Doug Swift – Owner of Enso Martial Arts Shop
The Black Heavyweight Karate Gi sizes are based on height of the person. For instance a 3/160 is based on someone of a average build who is 160cm in height. You will get a bit of shrinkage from the 100% cotton fabric but the sizes are quite generous so you don’t really account for that when choosing your size.
