Mykaratestore.com LLC is a leading online supplier of a broad variety of items related to martial arts. They distribute products from some of the most trusted brands in the combat sports, including Tiger Claw, KWON, Century, Tokaido Japan, and more. While specializing in authentic Tokaido Karate Gi, they also sell quality and affordable Judo Gi / Judo Uniforms that are made from absorbent and heavy-duty fabric. The spokesperson explains that the company sells Judo Gis that are made from cotton with varying levels of reinforcement, reinforced stitching, and a variety of colors. Users can also choose from single and double weaving for further reinforcement. Judo Gi is a vital part of the Japanese martial art that is used for chokes and locks, and so it must hold up to being grabbed by opponent for throws.
Judo Gi is a relatively new part of Judo with roots in Jujitsu, and even with the Samurai. Many new techniques in Judo have been formulated and refined over the years using Judo Gi as part of their training regimen. In addition to Judo Gi, the company also sells all types of martial arts attire and uniforms for Tae Kwon Do, Kung Fu, Gunfu, Kempo, Kenpo, Kajukembo, Judo, Jujitsu, and Hapkido as well as Karate Gi. Mykaratestore.com LLC also supplies body armor, books, CDs, and other equipment and accessories for all types of martial arts.
Moreover, learning any form of martial arts conveys more benefits than self-defense alone. On top of helping the practitioner build self-discipline and self-control, martial arts also promotes a positive way of life by improving one’s physical wellness and mental health. In fact, a scientific case report from the American Journal of Psychotherapy suggests that martial arts can be a form of mental therapy. The physical aspect of martial arts exercise can pair well with psychotherapy as a way to let out or discover suppressed feelings and emotions.
However, martial arts does indeed help individuals to be both physically equipped and mentally prepared with actual self-defense situations. “Awareness is a key aspect of self-defense, and if you know how to identify the dangers around you, you will be able to react properly and confidently, knowing that you can protect yourself and the people around you,” says the company.
They invite the general public to visit their website to browse the wide range of martial arts equipment and accessories that they offer. Students who wish to apply for the Karate Warrior Scholarship are also invited to submit the requirements as early as possible (applications are currently underway). Interested parties may also connect with the company through their official social media pages to stay up to date with their latest news and important announcements.
