CHOOSING YOUR JUDO UNIFORM
Judo is a combat sport that uses grappling techniques. The young judoka has to grab their opponent's uniform when attempting to throw them to the ground, and possibly immobilize them.
This is why the uniform must be particularly tear resistant, with reinforced sections in areas of strain or friction.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE
Your height will determine the size of your uniform (from 160 cm to 200 cm).
In keeping with tradition, the uniforms are made from cotton and have a natural tendency to shrink a few centimetres during the first three washes.
This is why we recommend choosing a uniform which is at least 5 cm bigger than your height. For example, if you are 174 cm, chose a 180 cm uniform.
WHICH UNIFORM FOR WHICH LEVEL?
A judoka who competes should choose a very durable uniform with thicker fabric to prevent his opponent from gripping (kumi kata).
The uniform should be left out to air after each use. Regular washing will help keep your uniform white. Use cold water for the first few washes. After that, wash at no more warmer 30°C.
THE BENEFITS OF JUDO
Judo is a very physical sport: The aim is to control your opponent's body.
This sport is also a form of psychological training. It relaxes the body and mind. The word "judo" even means "gentle way".
