Gi Definition

What Does Gi Mean?

Gi

gi

\gē\
noun

Definition: The name for the traditional karate uniform. It has a similar origin to the judogi, the judo uniform, but the Gi is made from much lighter material. It is important to purchase a high-quality Gi, because an inferior-quality garment will quickly shred under the stresses of karate practice. The lighter material makes it easier for the karateka to practice.
