A karate GI, also known as a karate uniform, is the traditional uniform worn by practitioners of karate. It typically consists of a white, loose-fitting jacket called a "kimono" or "gi," and matching pants known as "zubon." The gi is designed to provide comfort and freedom of movement during training and competition. It symbolises the values of discipline, respect, and humility in martial arts. Many dojos (training halls) have specific requirements for the colour and style of the gi, but white is the most common. The gi is often worn with a coloured belt, indicating the practitioner's rank and level of expertise in karate.
