Washing Your Uniform
Most uniform manufacturers will have specific washing details on the inside of the uniform. If there is not one there the basic rule of thumb is cold water wash and hang dry. Depending on the cotton count, placing your uniform in the dryer can cause some unexpected shrinkage. If you can’t avoid using the dryer, fix your setting to low heat tumble dry no minimize the chance of shrinking
Determine Correct Size Of Uniform Or Gear
When viewing a product online, check the size guide tab underneath the product to help determine a guided fit. You may also ask your instructor for correct sizing, as they will know from experience how to properly outfit you for equipment. Please note that where there is a size guide, it serves only as a guide as it is impossible to determine sizes of individuals based on age, height or weight.
The Difference Between Product Materials

Cloth tends to be the more economical form of sparring protection but in most cases offer minimal-moderate protection. Don’t forget, that cloth can get smelly and have its color fade due to the sweat retention. Vinyl foam gear can offer you medium protection while still being a cost-effective form of equipment and is a very popular choice in many traditional forms of martial arts. Although the more expensive material used of the 3, leather sparring products mainly offers you maximum protection and durability. This tends to be the choice of intermediate to advanced athletes.
