The more the uniform weighs the more strong is the material of the jacket. Heavy uniforms are very suitable for competitions.

How to find the right judo suit
Judo suit jackets
Judo Uniform - Tops are made of a heavy, very thick fabric. In order to withstand the stresses, it is as tear-resistant as possible, and as rough as possible to enable a good grip.
There are different strengths, which are given in grams - e.g. B. 400g / m2 (this corresponds to a training quality suit). The heavier the suit, the stronger the fabric of the jacket. Heavy suits are often worn for competitions. A real judo jacket has a ribbed structure, which is also known as rice grain weaving. This structure makes the jacket more stable.
However, there are no exact specifications for judo, everyone has to decide for themselves between tear resistance and wearing comfort. Particularly thick jackets can be uncomfortable to wear because they are then very stiff, but particularly light ones tear more quickly.
Judo suit pants
The judo suit - pants, like the top, is usually made of cotton and is long. Shorts are not recommended for judo, as the wearer otherwise risks painful abrasions on the legs. Because of "mat fire" reinforcements are sewn with extra layers of fabric, especially on the knees. The judo trousers are lighter than the jackets and have a smooth structure. Judo pants usually have additional reinforcements in the knee area. As a result, judo pants do not wear out as quickly. Judo pants are suitable for all sports where the knees are more stressed.
When buying the right size for the suit is very important. As a rule, the suits are given according to height, i.e. 120, 130, 140, etc. This applies to both children's judo suits and adult suits. The size intervals are always ten centimeters. Intermediate sizes are only available in some cases. If you are between sizes, the next larger suit is usually recommended, as the suits are usually made of 100% cotton and shrink when washed.
The physique is also important to note. For very slim people, the next smaller size is usually sufficient. Conversely, people with a strong physique should prefer to take the next larger suit.
If you follow these rules, you can easily find a judo leotard that is the right length and fits well at the same time. Training is guaranteed to be fun!
