Traditional cut suitable for judo, jujitsu, and aikido.
Thick 350 g/m² rice-grain fabric.
The 350 judo gi is made from cotton/polyester blend fabric that withstands repeated washing and won't shrink as much as 100% cotton models.
Judo gis are reinforced at the neck (for gripping) and knees (for floor combat).
CHOOSING YOUR JUDO GI
Judo is a combat sport that uses grappling techniques. The young judoka has to grab their opponent's gi when attempting to throw them to the ground and possibly immobilize them.
This is why the gi must be particularly tear-resistant, with reinforced sections in areas of strain or friction.
WHICH GI FOR WHICH LEVEL?
- A child who is new to judo or has been doing judo for 1-2 years should choose a 100% cotton gi in twill fabric (220 g/m²) that is both flexible and durable.
- A judoka who has been doing judo for two years (yellow or orange belt) or who is starting competitions should choose a rice-grain weave gi, which is particularly tear-resistant and designed to withstand gripping. Its polyester/cotton composition (350 g/m²) results in good post-shrinkage fit and dries quickly.
The size of the gi you choose will depend on your child's height (from 100 cm to 150 cm). We recommend choosing a gi that is 5 to 10 cm bigger than your child. For example, if your child is 133 cm (4'4") tall, chose a 140 cm gi.
The gi should be left out to air after each use. Regular washing will help keep your gi white. Use cold water for the first few washes. After that, wash at no warmer than 30°C.
THE BENEFITS OF JUDO
Judo is a very physical sport: kids expend a lot of energy in a single session.
It is also a well-rounded sport. Because the aim is to control the weight of their opponent, children use and strengthen their whole body. This is also a psychological sport. It helps make both mind and spirit more flexible. Incidentally, "judo" means "path to flexibility."
