It is important to wear the right clothing for the sport in question. A judo jacket does not meet the demands of karate. The karateka reacts to the movements of the opponent. It is important to be able to move easily and quickly. This is the reason why a karate suit is shorter and lighter. Where judo is a sport with direct contact, karate is not the direct goal. The size of the karate suit is equal to the body length. Example: When the body length is 135 cm, a 140 cm suit is the best size.
The level of karateka is expressed in the color of a tire. This is a karate accessory that can not be missed. The first six colors (white, yellow, orange, green, blue and brown) are the Kyu degrees. The karateka is still a pupil when wearing these colors. After the brown band comes the black belt (Dan grade). From this moment on the karateka may call itself a master. There are several levels in this degree.
