The Shotokan Karate Gi Red Label
The Shotokan Red Label Karate Gi is the perfect choice for the beginning karateka and children. Low weight cotton causes the karate suit to tear faster, therefore Ichiban MAE’s karate suits start at 8 oz cotton. This is a strong fabric, yet maximally flexible for unhindered movement. Only 100% high-quality cotton keeps you cool and dry, so in Ichiban MAE’s Dogis you won’t find synthetic materials like in cheap karate suits. The 8 oz pants offers unrestricted movement. For easy changing, junior sizes (up to 150 cm) have an elastic waist with drawstring closure at the front. Larger sizes have a traditional lace fastening at the hips. A belt is not included (optional).
Material and color
The karate suit is made of 100% cotton. Our Shotokan Gis are produced in white (bleached cotton) as standard. At Ichiban you have the option to have the suit made in a custom color. For a color of your choice, select ‘Custom’ in the menu. Our designers will contact you to discuss your color wishes.
There is no kanji embroidery on the suit. Upon request, we can provide the Shotokan Gi with a kanji or logo of your choice. Feel free to contact us for more information.
Our Shotokan karate suits come standard with a long sleeve. For specific wishes, please contact us.
Need to know
Ichiban MAE karate suits are, according to Japanese principles, made of 100% cotton. A characteristic of cotton is shrinkage during the first few washes. Please take this into account when purchasing a karate Gi. An unwashed karate Gi is larger but will fit perfectly after washing. Also, folding sleeves and pant legs is not uncommon in martial arts.
Designed by experts, proven in practice
Our founder Shihan Alain Breugelmans has been at the drawing board of our collection. All Ichiban MAE products are custom designed based on worldwide experience.
