Judo Gi Cyber Deals Become The Popular Choice Ahead Of Black Friday

Due to the explosion of interest in the sport, sales of high quality Judo Gi have become a popular choice for smart shoppers, reports MyKarateStore.com LLC. The company has also seen soaring sales of their Wing Chun dummies, also known as the Muk Yan Jong, due to their current deals (which will last till December 15).

A representative for the top online store for high quality martial arts merchandise and training aids says, “Over the past few years, interest in martial arts training has grown. Anyone, young and old alike, can learn new skills and develop habits that improve their lives. Getting good quality uniforms which last through demanding training sessions simply makes sense for the new students.”

Karate, Judo, and many other martial arts have become a great way for people around the globe to get fit, stay focused, and maintain their motivation as the disciplines they learn carry over to their school and family lives, as well as their careers. Children’s classes are a great way for parents to ensure that they get the best possible start in martial arts, learning self-discipline skills from skilled and experienced teachers. Caring for their own uniform is a great way to introduce responsibility at home as well.

The Gis sold by MyKarateStore.com are top quality, with their black Judo Gi / uniform boasting a rating of 5/5 stars. It was designed by US Olympic coach Willy Cahill, and is a great choice for many variants of martial arts training, such as jujitsu. It is made from 100% natural cotton fabric, single woven in the traditional rice-grain weave. The pants have a comfortable elastic waist and padded knees for added protection. The quality is borne out through the reinforced stitching, which will last through any extent of punishing training.

In a review shared on their website, verified customer Rick says, “This Judo Gi has become one of my favorites over the years: sturdy, reinforced, good fit, and 100% cotton. The collar is also nice and thick. Since it's made entirely of cotton, there can be some shrinkage when you wash it. At this price, I purchased a second Gi for when one needs to be washed really, really badly. Your training partners will appreciate that!”

With its current price point, it is sure to be a popular choice for those looking for a bargain present. MyKarateStore.com LLC reports that the Blue Double Weave Cahill Judo uniform has also been a popular choice for those looking for looking for competition double weave uniforms approved by the US Judo Association. This set has drawstring pants with two ply construction on the front side, and two ply construction running from the thigh to the cuff.

Superior construction methods used in this Gi have led to stronger stitching used in the grappling areas of the lapel and chest. Interlocked stitching has been incorporated along the major seams that undergo extreme pulling forces like the backside of the jacket and down the sleeves as well as in the armpits and crotch area. With quality this high, the competition approved uniform is sure to make many memories and withstand any level of punishment during tournaments.

Women have also taken to martial arts training, particularly with self-defense and mixed martial arts, which helps them improve and maintain their physical fitness. Many report that attending regular classes helps improve their self confidence in dealing with stressful and aggressive situations, which often require the ability to make on the spot decisions. The online store also caters for those interested in advanced equipment, including sparring gear, weapons, and fight and athletic wear. It is the one stop shop for martial arts practitioners to find the best garment choices that can be shipped anywhere in the world (some products cannot be shipped to international destinations).
