What do you do when you’re in a hostile situation? Do you cry, ran away, or fight back? You don’t have to be big and strong to defeat your rival. All you need to do is to learn various mixed martial arts techniques and you’re ready to defend yourself. To be able to perform the various techniques involved in a particular fighting system, you should have all the proper equipments; it always begins with the clothes you wear.
The clothing used in the different forms of martial arts varies. If you’re into Tae Kwon Do, karate, and judo, you will need to have your own belts, trousers, and jackets. There are little variations depending on the three styles.
The jacket used by Judo students are tough and durable cotton fabric because players pull on the clothing to throw their competitor off-balance. The trousers should be above the student’s ankles so that the feet’s movements are not obstructed.
Belts are made from thick cotton and to make it durable, it should be double stitched. The skill level of the student is reflected on the belt’s color.
In karate, the jacket should be smooth and durable to provide comfort. Since the training involves long sessions, the jacket’s pure cotton material can absorb the sweat or perspiration.
Trousers should be strong so that it doesn’t rip or get torn easily. The trousers also are available in drawstrings and elastic bands are not recommended because it might apply great pressure on the waits or it might snap unexpectedly. The material for the belt should be thick cotton and its color should be appropriate to the skill level of the student.
If you’re a Tae Kwon Do player, you will depend more on spinning kicks. Trousers should therefore be double stitched and strong for durability. A cotton jacket is needed to ensure comfort and durability. Like the belts of Judo and karate, the belts for Tae Kwon Do are double stitched and dual-layer. The skill level is also reflected in the color of the belt.
