We supply karate suits (dogi), kumite(free sparring) equipment and some England Renshinkan sweatshirts and t-shirts.
Clothing Order Form: Dogi Order Request Form
Children are recommended to purchase the lightweight dogi with school badges.
Children’s sizes start from 110-150cms, thereafter adult sizes apply.
Adult Dogi are fully embroidered, and do not require the purchase of school badges. Adults are recommended to purchase the Silver Tournament, which is a good starter gi and has the added advantage of being particularly hard wearing. Heavyweight dogi’s also come in half sizes.
Sizing Your Gi
Children should order at least one size bigger than their current height.
Adults should size at least 1/2 size bigger if they are purchasing a heavyweight, and one size bigger if they are purchasing a lightweight.
All students should be aware that dogi’s are seized on height only. Sizes should be increased to take into account more heavyset students. Additionally, dogi’s do shrink, and should be washed in 30 degrees only and not placed in the tumble drier.
