How do you choose your judo uniform?
Judo is a so-called "prehensive" combat sport. The young judoka has to grab his opponent's uniform when attempting to throw him to the ground, and possibly immobilize him. This is why the uniform must be particularly tear resistant, with reinforced sections in areas subject to stress or friction.
What size should you choose for a child?
Your child's height will determine the size of their uniform, from 100 cm to 150 cm. In keeping with tradition, the uniforms are made from cotton and have a natural tendency to shrink a few centimetres during the first 3 washes. This is why we recommend choosing a uniform that is 5 to 10 cm bigger than your child. For example, if your child is 133 cm, choose a 140 cm uniform
Which uniform for which level?
A child who is new to judo or has been doing judo for 12 years should choose a 100% cotton uniform in twill fabric (220 g/sqm) that is both flexible and durable. A judoka who has been doing judo for 2 years (yellow or orange belt) or who is starting competitions should choose a rice-grain weave uniform that is particularly tear-resistant and designed to withstand gripping. Its polyester/cotton composition (350 g/sqm) results in good post-shrinkage fit and dries quickly.
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 than 30°C.
The benefits of judo
Judo is a very physical sport: in just one session, kids will really wear themselves out. An all-round sport: as the aim is to control your opponent's body, children will use and develop all of their muscles. This sport is also a form of psychological training. It relaxes the body and mind. The word "judo" even means "gentle way".
